WARNING THIS GAME IS GLITCHED. When playing through the game if you want to get the Holocron achievement DO NOT I repeat DO NOT change costumes and DO NOT enter any cheat codes. If you do there is a 98% chance you will get the DEFAULT TEXT glitch. This glitch will appear on your mission objective screen.
Your bonus objective will appear as DEFAULT TEXT. Holocrons will stay at 0/15 (no matter how many you have collected on that particular level.) Force score will stay at 0. Even if you collect all Holocrons the game shows that you have not and the achievement WILL NOT pop. This glitch WILL NOT affect any other achievement only the Holocrons collected. I got this glitch on the DEATHSTAR level, which believe me when you have been playing for 12 hours collecting all the Holocrons it's the last thing you want to see! WHY COULDN'T IT HAVE HAPPENED ON ONE OF THE EARLIER LEVELS?? Son of a b*tch!!!
To remedy this I started a new game on apprentice difficulty and ran through the game collecting all Holocrons and not changing a thing, while at the same time keeping my fingers crossed that the glitch wouldn't reoccur. It took me 3 hours 56mins to collect them all and yipi ki yay the achievement popped. Hopefully by then Lucas Arts will have fixed this glitch by the time I have finished this guide.
Editors note : There has been an update for this game, so this glitch may not occur. But best to be safe.
One more thing that pi**ed me off was the difficulty achievements. I played through the game on Sith Warrior which was pretty easy and when I had completed the game, I got stacked points for Apprentice and Sith warrior, sweeeeet.The game then takes you back to the first level so I changed to Sith Lord difficulty and played the game again. Fourteen hours later I finished the game and was watching the last cut scene with a proud grin on my face waiting for the 200 stacked points to pop.
YOU MUST BEGIN THE GAME AT THE PROLOGUE MISSION! That means you must start a new game with no upgrades and slog your way through once again, as you cannot select the prologue at the mission select! I will tell you now it is NOT EASY, IN FACT IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.
If I could turn back the clock I would have started the game on SITH LORD difficulty then afterward started a new game on apprentice for the Holocrons. Ah well I suppose you can look at it this way, I DID IT SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO. What a nice guy I am. (Cough!)
Anyway bitching aside the game is good I can't put it down, (maybe because I don't want to let the F***ER beat me!) If you take note from above you should have no problems at all and find the game most enjoyable. Apart form the odd graphics glitch here and there. Kicking ass with the force is what it's about and kick ass you do. Most of the achievements can be collected by playing through the game. Although the MASTERY achievements can only be collected by re-playing levels and racking up kills with the corresponding ability, Force push for example.
If you just want to get to the end of the level it is possible to run and jump your way to the next checkpoint avoiding all enemies. This is a technique that SLAM DA BRAKES will most definitely take on as he tries this with almost every game he plays....
Editors Note again: It is because it works (Slam)

Move on and overload the rail guntracks. There are 4 in total on top of the buildings,
NOW FOR THE MOST ANNOYING PART OF THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!
PULL DOWN THE STAR DESTROYER!!!
Take out all the Tie fighters with lightning attacks. Hide behind the turrets in front of you to avoid lasers, once the Tie fighters have been destroyed, force grip the Star Destroyer. You must align the destroyer using the left and right sticks to pull it down. This is going to take quite while!!!! There will be another wave of Tie fighters coming at you after a short while, while manoeuvring the destroyer. Take out the fighters. As you take out the fighters the destroyer, will be slowly moving out of position, so get rid of the fighters as quickly as possible and get back to moving the destroyer. This cycle will keep on repeating until you pull the destroyer out of the sky (the quicker you take out the fighters the quicker you can get back to the destroyer) This is a REAL PAIN IN THE ASS, the only advice i can give to you is try to get the destroyer parallel and in the centre of the screen.
GOOD LUCK AND MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.
