Extra

This is where all the classless characters end up. No, I’m not saying they don’t have class. I’m saying they don’t have a class. There are so many characters in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga that not everyone can be categorised. So this is the catchall. Characters like Dexter Jettster or Gummgar. They don’t have any special abilities in-game, sadly.

Other characters include:

  • Anakin Skywalker (Episode I)
  • Jubnuk
  • Jabba the Huttt
  • Mama the Hutt
  • Queen Amidala

That’s everything we’ve got for now on Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga classes. We’ve also got a guide to Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga codes if you need a hand filling up that character roster.
