The Heroes of Battlefront II are mainly Jedi, but also major characters from the films. Each level has a different hero for each faction (GAR, Imperial Army, etc).


After fulfilling the goals set in the Hero Options screen (e.g. earn 10 points), you are able to obtain the services of one of these Heroes to aid you. Each has a different ability and will last a limited amount of time. The time, represented by a lightsaber bar, will decrease faster if the player does negative things such as spawn-camping or killing teammates. The bar will increase if the player kills numerous enemy units or vehicles. Each team gets one Hero at a time, but there can be more than one Hero for each team per match if the Heroes are unlocked more than once. Each Jedi has the ability to use Force Jump and Force Speed. The Force Sensitive characters also each get two of seven special techniques. They are Force Pull (Jedi only), Force Push (both), Force Choke (Sith only), Force Lightning (Sith only), Saber Throw (both), Force Water Orb (Kit Fisto only) and Starblades (Asajj Ventress only).

In Hero Assault Mode, multiple heroes occupy the map. The lightsaber health bar is replaced by the standard non-hero health bar.

Neutral sides/creatures[]

On certain levels, there are three way battles between the two normal sides and a neutral side, and on others, the natives join a certain side. In addition, there are native creatures that will attack anything that comes across their path. The Jawas on Mos Eisley are an exception, being completely non-aggressive.
