There are six modes called heroics. The top hole starts a mode and feeds the ball to the left inlane via the cannon. The modes are:
- Leia: The player's mission is to choke Jabba the Hutt. The display shows Leia with a chain around his neck which she pulls tighter with each ramp shot. 3 ramps chokes Jabba. The ramps score 200k then 300k and finally 400k. The mode lasts about 30 seconds.
- Luke: Load the X-Wing and shoot the ball through the narrow lane within 30 seconds for a 500k jackpot.
- Chewie: Rebuild C-3PO. The ramp, both orbits and the top hole score points and award a body part. The points are 100k, 200k, 300k and finally 400k.
- C-3P0/R2-D2: Shoot the top hole 3 times to stop the trash compactor. scores 50k+ 100k per shot.
- Obi Wan: Shoot the lit shots to confuse the stormtroopers. The first shot is the right orbit, then the ramp, then the left orbit. Each shot scores 150k+ 100k per shot.
- Han Solo: A hurry-up. Shoot the right hole to escape from the slug and award the points. The value starts at 420k.
At the start of the game the player is given the choice of playing either the normal 3 ball game or a novice game which guarantees a 2-minute game time with the ball saver active. When the ball saver times out, the first drain ends the game. Holding in the left flipper and pressing start gives League mode and holding the right flipper gives Wizard mode.
