Story

Having escaped enslavement by Zarien Kheev, Twi'lek Rianna Saren is a successful mercenary opposing the Empire. Kyle Katarn of the Rebel Alliance hires her to destroy an Imperial shipment of mirkanite going through a Black Sun warehouse on Coruscant. Rianna is captured during the operation, but escapes with the help of a droid named Zeeo. Rebel leader Princess Leia then sends Rianna and Zeeo to Alderaan on a new assignment to destroy an Imperial ship.

On Alderaan, Rianna and Zeeo make their way through an Imperial base, opposed by Stormtroopers and Black Sun guards. Discovering that the Empire is experimenting on its own scientists, they blow up the ship and the lab. They learn that a last shipment is heading to Mustafar, and Leia sends them after it. Rianna and Zeeo search an Imperial mining facility on Mustafar, eventually finding and destroying the drill. Rianna finds out that Kheev is going to Tatooine, and heads there herself.

Rianna's ship is shot down over Tatooine by Boba Fett in his Slave I. Rianna and Zeeo track down Kheev, who sets a Rancor loose on them in an arena. They kill it, but are captured and brought to Despayre where the Death Star is being constructed. Escaping, they hear Kheev talking to Darth Vader about the construction on the Death Star. Donning a huge robot suit, Zheev attacks Rianna. She kills him, and tells the Alliance that she and Zeeo have found the plans to the Death Star.

Gameplay

Lethal Alliance focuses on shooting rather than lightsabers and The Force. The DS version of the game makes heavy use of the touch screen for gameplay, while the PSP version utilizes the handheld's buttons. The PSP version lets the player utilize "stealth" features such as stealth attack moves, sneaking past enemies, wearing disguises, while the DS version has an exclusive weapon called the Dual Cannon. The Dual Cannon can only be used once you have obtained "Maximum Alliance" between Rianna and Zeeo. Once the Dual Cannon is used it greatly drops your alliance bar, and must be filled to use again.

Multiplayer

Both versions utilize Wi-Fi and local area connections for multiplayer gaming.

The Sony PSP version features Twi'lek (Rianna's species) vs. Twi'lek, while the Nintendo DS features droid versus droid.
