The game also offers a balance between open-world exploration and linear sections. These linear sections contain story-driven combat situations and platforming challenges, delivering a well-paced narrative experience. The more open-world areas, such as the planet Koboh, provide opportunities for players to engage in side quests, explore diverse environments, and battle powerful bosses.

The sequel features larger maps and a more open-world feel, giving players the chance to delve deeper into the Star Wars universe. The holographic map has also been improved, offering easier navigation and better clarity when locating unexplored areas.
