Ahh the nostalgia of reflecting a laser blast from the speederbike as it heads
dirrectly at you. Then at the last minute you slice the front end of the speeder
with your light saber, sending the speeder into a spin and ultimately exploding into a wall. How cool is that. Very nice touch to the game. Thanks Raven/Lucas Arts.

Here's a collage of screenshots I've made showing what I mean. Some
with Luke and a stormtrooper to add to the effect. (wish there was a model
of the actual troops that were on those bikes in RotJ)

Yeah, I had a lot of fun on that level, it was great especially when the othere riders just crashed into the walls. It was also cool how it just did a 360 turn around you when you did huge jumps:D

Not sure if anyone tried this, but:

If you're on a bike and you pull up next to another person on a bike, press the strafe key towards them and hit jump. You will jump over to their bike, throw them off and ride off on their bike...

That and the other stuff you guys mentioned is stuff Chris Reed (and our animators) did with the bikes, btw, all very fun, cool stuff... :)

I like it when your on a Swoop and you activate your Saber then when another guy comes up close Slash him and watch him crash into the wall or floor, ah great fun. :D

Oh my god ChangKhan[RAVEN]....
I didn't know that. That is awesome :)

I've just tried it out and it's really cool.

Here's a screenshot montage of the speederbike stealing :D

Thanks for the tip :)

That's freaking awesome.

Can you like duel on speeder bikes in MP? That would rock.

I just played this level, and I found this out by accident. For the love of all things holy, this game rocks!!

I REALLY wish I had taken screenshots of it, as it was incredibly cool, and I haven't been able to pull it off since but it was similar to what you guys did.

My bike was almost dead, and I heard firing behind me so I jumped off, a moment later the bike went boom into a wall, I spun around and drew my saber, deflecting the attacks of my pursuer. As the pursuer got very close I hit forward+jump+attack and Jaden did the medium stance flip/downward slash special and killed the guy.

Another fun thing to do, is to use grip on them when they charge you (careful, bike can still get you) it's just funny watching them stick in the air.

The most fun i had on this level was when i used grip on the guy next to me, pulled him off his bike, drove along for a bit holding him with grip, then jerked the mouse and smashed him into a wall at high speed.

Gotta try that one.

The most I've done is slice someone medieval knight syle with a speeder bike as I rode past them.

Sweet.

Yeah, Mr.Wibble, I've done that, and I think indirectly killing them like that is the best! Getting rid of your enemies without a swing or a shot! :P

Bloody hell! I hated that level... Steering swoops (or anything else) with a mouse is an utter drag, and I'm too lazy to remap my keys for the sake of a sub-mission, so I just sped through the whole thing, occassionally pushing people off. Any tips on swoop handling?.. I want cool movez...

Try turning up 'mouse sensitivity' (under 'controls' mouse options)

This usually does the trick !

First time I tried that level, I just went through it as fast as I could.
I hated the controls too. But after complete the game, I went back
to it and tried it again. What I did is played it a few times with GOD
mode on. Just to get the hang of it. Now I can steal someones swoop
really easy, saber them to their death or simply blast them off
their bike without using god mode. Lots of fun :)
