Section 1:  Overview

        The galaxy stands posed at a moment of tremendous change that will forever alter 
        the lives of its billions of inhabitants.  When the greedy trade federation 
        mobilized for an invasion of the peaceful planet Naboo, the Jedi Master Qui-Gon 
        Jinn and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi, find themselves embroiled in the violent
        conflict.  Manwhile, in the city Theed, Captain Panaka, must call upon all of 
        their training to survive the first attack.  And in the swamps of Naboo, the 
        clumsy Gungan Jar Jar Binks moves ever closer to his fatal meeting with Qui-Gon.
        But it is on the desert world of Tatooine, far removed from the machinations of
        the trade federation and the endless debate in the galactic senate, where the 
        Jedi will eventually discover a young slave named Anakin Skywalker.  Despite his 
        humble beginnings, the boy could eventually save them all.

                                all life forms, yet he is intensely loyal and models

                                strength and wisdom, Qui-Gon has never sat on the Jedi
                                Council due to is unconventional views.  Special

                                difficulty trusting others, especially when it could

Other Characters
----------------

                                amazingly strong with this boy, although his future is 
                                clouded.  He forms an immediate attachment to the       
                                Queen's handmaiden, Padm. 
Jar Jar Binks                   A clumsy Gungan who aids the heroes, partially because

                                banished from Otoh Gunga, yet his role in uniting the 
                                Gungans with Qeen Amidala will eventually bring him 
                                honor and respect from his people.

Enemies

Battle Droid                    The primary enemy encountered by the heroes.  Battle 
                                droids have been developed secretly by several factions, 
                                including the Trade Federation, despite the restrictions
                                of the Republic.  They are extremely efficient and have 
                                been programmed for many combat situations.
Maintenance Droid               The cleaning droids found in air vents on the Trade
                                Federation ship.  They are not dangerous as such, but
                                they are programmed to recognize obstructions as dirt
                                and obliterate then with electrostatic energy.
Destroyer Droid                 Incredibly dangerous rolling battle units with personal 
                                deflector shields for defense.  These shields, along    
                                with their mobility and heavy armament, make them even
                                more formidable foe than the battle droids.
Coruscant Mercenary             Armed with a force pike, the Coruscant Mercenary is 
                                trained in stealth and melee fighting. 
Battle Tank                     The Trade Federation battle tank, also known as an 
                                Armored Attack Tank or AAT.  These tanks confront the 
                                enemy with heavily armored facade and a blistering hail 
                                of assault fire from five laser guns and six energy
                                shell launchers.  Their deployment on Naboo are the 
                                tanks' first use in open combat. 
Darth Maul                      A Sith Lord and apprentice to Darth Sidious.  He weilds
                                a double bladed lightsaber.  His appearance is fearsome,
                                with horns covering his bald head, and red and black    
                                tatoos on his face.  His absorption in the dark side of 
                                the Force is total, and he fights with frightening      
                                ferocity.

Neimoidians and a deathtrap for Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon.

Section 15: Hints and Tips

* Sometimes creates contain useful items. Break open every one that you can get and
  get ready for a surprise.
* Talk to everyone and check in with the characters again from time to time. You
  never know when you'll have something they need.
* Know when to fight and when to run.
* Do not attack unless you are sure that the enemy is hostile.
* Know the strengths and weakness of your enemy. Different strategies work well on
  some enemies, but not on others.
* Keep moving, a moving target is better than a sitting duck (In open areas, roll or
  sidestep while firing to attack and dodge simultaneously).
* Pay attention to the features of the level. Hints and secrets are hidden everywhere.
* If on an escort mission, stay close to the person you are escorting. Do not stray, 
  or harm may come to them.
* Use powerups sparingly. You never know when you are going to really need them.
* Familiarize yourself with using the lightsaber. The Jedi have some devastating
  special moves.
* There is often more than one way to complete the same puzzle.
