  • First Fight – Darth Vader
  • Second Fight – Emperor Palpatine

First Fight – Darth Vader

Darth Vader is your first opponent in Episode VI’s finale.

Palpatine watches the fight without interfering.

In the beginning, you have to overpower Vader by quickly mashing the displayed button.

During the fight, be cautious of red lines and circles that indicate where Vader will strike. Dodge to avoid getting hit.

You can hit the boss from a safe distance by throwing lightsabers or nearby objects at him.

After depleting his first health bar, the fight moves to an elevated platform where you have to complete two QTEs. Failing to do so causes minor damage.

In the dark area, avoid Vader’s visibility cone to trigger the second phase of the duel, which is the same as the first one. Keep avoiding his red attacks and strike him whenever possible.

Second Fight – Emperor Palpatine

The second boss in Episode VI’s finale is Emperor Palpatine. Vader and Luke team up to face him.

Begin the battle by deflecting his Force Lightning. Aim the crosshair at Palpatine to redirect his lightning onto him.

Palpatine calls in reinforcements during the fight. Deal with them each time he does so. Be careful of the red circles while fighting the guards. They indicate where Palpatine’s lightning or the guards’s strong attacks will strike. Dodge out of the way each time you find yourself inside a circle.

To overpower the Emperor at the end of the battle, deflect the lightning (move the crosshair onto the boss) while pressing the buttons displayed on the screen rhythmically to advance towards Palpatine. Eventually, Vader and Luke will reach the Emperor and defeat him, completing Episode 6.
