2. General Hints & Tips
If you've never played a LEGO game before, it'd be a good idea to read up on the Hints that you can buy in the main hub area of the game on the next page. If you're experienced with LEGO games, it's still a good idea to at least take a good look at that page before heading on to Chapter 1 of Episode IV.
The first thing you should be doing is going through every movie's Story levels, earning a True Jedi ranking as you do so. Unlike most other LEGO games, you have to earn True Jedi on a level in both Story and Free Play, so to avoid having to sit through cutscenes more than you have to, it's best to get this ranking your first time through. While you play through the Story, don't spend a single Stud and save them for later; there's a family of Extras that you'll really want to unlock in order, and the first costs 2,000,000 Studs. The more you have at the end of your Story run, the better.
When you've cleared all of the Story levels, it'll be time to move on to Free Play and start getting collectibles. It'd make sense to go in story order, but you can also head to whichever Power Brick you'd like to unlock the Extra of to make things easier for later Free Play runs. Because of this, it'd be best to run through Chapter 4-6 and pick up the Score x2 Power Brick, which is the important one mentioned earlier. More information on Extras will be given later, but that's all you need to know as you start the game.
Without further ado, it's time to start the story with Episode IV: A New Hope.
