At the Pork Federation Spaceship, Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice, Obi Wan Kenobi quickly escape to Naboo, where they fight their way through. There, they are outnumbered by a gigantic army of Battle Droids. Fortunately however, Yoda comes in and helps them. Defeating most of the Battle Droids, the trio save Padmé Amidala, Captain Panaka, and Jar Jar Binks, who were captured by the Pork Side. However, they are soon attacked by the remaining Battle Droids and escape.
Meanwhile, at the Pork Federation Spaceship, Darth Sidious and Jango Fett notice that the heroes escaped from Naboo, and Sidious sends Jango and some Battle Droids to go after them. Sidious is pleased at how they managed to damage their ship and send them to Tatooine. There, the heroes set to repair the ship. With the Pork Side still hot on their heels, they meet Anakin Skywalker, a young mechanic, who is seen repairing his podracer. They manage to defeat Sebulba Pig and escape from the planet. However, they are attacked by Darth Maul, though they still manage to escape.
Returning back to Naboo, the heroes prepare to defeat the last hordes of Battle Droids. Meanwhile, Darth Maul witnesses them returning to the planet, and starts to attack the guards with the help of Zam Wesell. While the other heroes successfully manage to destroy the Pork Federation Spaceship and save Naboo, Qui-Gon and Kenobi have a fight against Maul on the planet, which costed Qui-Gon's life. Kenobi cries over his ally's death as Maul leaves laughing maniacally.
Many years later, Anakin starts a romantic relationship with Padmé. At Coruscant, Kenobi discovers Zam Wesell and her allies attacking the planet, so he and co. prepare to defeat her. The heroes are also supported by some Stormtroppers in disguise, as well as Mace Windu and some Jedi Younglings. After defeating Wesell, Obi Wan sees Jango and Boba Fett escape to Kamino, and tries to fight them with the help of some Stormtroppers. Despite his best efforts however, Kenobi is defeated and thrown at the waters of Kamino, watching Jango and Boba leave believing that he is dead.
Some time after, Obi Wan reports to Anakin and Padmé that he has followed Jango and Boba to Geonosis, and they meet each other on the planet, only to be caught by Jango Fett, Nute Gunray, Count Dooku and some Battle Droids. A Republic Gunship then arrives, and a disguised Darth Sidious, Kit Fisto, and some Stormtroppers come to help out. Jango has been killed and Boba holds him while a Homing Spider Droid comes. The heroic group fights and defeats Dooku, who retreats. They return back to Coruscant and oversee the production of Stormtroppers, though Yoda begins to suspect that something is not right. Later, Anakin and Obi Wan encounter Dooku again aboard a spaceship. Anakin easily manages to kill the pig. Meanwhile, General Grievous goes to Mustafar.
A while later, Anakin starts to doubt about the Jedi, and desires to know about The Egg, a mysterious object whose location is unknown to anyone but Yoda. Learning of this fact, Sidious lures the bird into joining the Pork Side. Later, Obi Wan, Padmé, and Windu discover that Sidious and Anakin were planning to kill Obi Wan. Windu tries to kill Anakin, only for him to be killed instead. Anakin then uses a ship to head to Mustafar, abandoning a dumbfounded Obi Wan and a heartbroken Padme. Sidious then orders the Stormtroopers to reveal themselves and kill all the Jedi. The few heroes remaining, including Obi Wan and Padmé, escape to Mustafar, where Obi Wan duels Anakin. Using the high ground to his advantage, Kenobi knocks the red bird into the lava. Later Obi Wan and Padmé with two eggs leave the volcanic planet as they watch Anakin's body being burned by the lava.
Some time following these events, Darth Sidious learns about Anakin's defeat, and he and some Shocktroopers go to Mustafar to retrieve Anakin's burned body. They later take him to surgery fitting him with a life-support armor. Deciding to get rid of his past self, Anakin adopts a new identity as Darth Vader.
Some time after, on Lothal, Kanan Harrus and Hera Syndulla attack Cikatro Vizago, who is talking to Agent Kallus through an hologram about the heroes. Vizago, Kallus and an army of Stormtroopers then attack Kanan and Hera, though the former uses his lightsaber to defend himself and his friend. In response, Kallus sends some AT-DP Pilots to go after them. The villains soon after have a fight against Kanan. Later, an injured Kallus talks to The Inquisitor through an hologram and tasks him with killing Kanan.
In the meantime, in other region of Lothal, Ezra Bridget infiltrates one of the Pork Side's bases and attacks the Stormtroopers there. He soon after gets cornered by the army, until he is later saved by Sabine Wren. They are also aided by Hera Syndulla. The trio later fights against The Inquisitor and defeats him, leaving Lothal afterwards as an enraged Kallus curses them from behind.
Angry Birds Star Wars II is a puzzle video game with similar gameplay to that from previous Angry Birds games. In the game, the player takes control of a limited group of playable characters, who can be launched anywhere by the use of a slingshot. All levels have a series of enemies the player must take down by the use of their characters. These enemies normally appear sheltered inside of structures made of wood, glass, and/or metal, in addition of some additional objects, such as chains and TNT. If the player fails to kill all the enemies in the levels, they will get a Level Failed screen, encouraging them to try again. If they manage to do so however, they will win and pass to the next level. Upon completing each level, the player will receive one, two, or three stars depending on the score received.
All characters in the game are part of either the Bird or the Pork Side, though they all have similar gameplay styles. In addition, the player may also replace the current character with another one they have in their inventory, granting them more possibilities to beat the levels. However, these additional characters are limited and the player will be unable to use them if they run out of them. To compensate this however, the player will be able to spend Credits in the shop to get more characters to play with.

Differences from the movies
- Nute Gunray and Rune Haako were never shown in Naboo Invasion, even though they appeared in the movie.
- Palpatine and Maul never appeared as holograms in The Phantom Menace.
- Jinn and Obi Wan never met with Yoda, nor did Yoda helped them defeat Battle Droids; rather, Yoda is in the Jedi Council with other Jedi.
- Captain Panaka and Padme were not in trouble with the Battle Droids; Qui-Gon and Obi Wan saved only Jar Jar from the Battle Droids. There was not a sequential chapter where Kenobi, Jinn and Jar Jar went to the underwater city of Naboo (although it is a map in bonus levels).
- The Pork Side stories are mixed and start in the storyline of Attack of the Clones.
- Jango Fett, Count Dooku, and Zam Wesell were never in The Phantom Menace.
- It is unknown why Jango was the first playable pig in the storyline of episode "Naboo Invasion."
- Dooku did not join the Dark Side until after the death of Darth Maul in the original movie. Similarly, Maul never actually dies in the game, simply leaving after killing Jinn, never to be seen again.
- The Jedi Council was never shown in the game until Rise of the Clones. However, only Yoda, Mace Windu, Ki-Adi Mundi, and Plo Koon were shown.
- Qui-Gon, Kenobi, Padme, Jar Jar, and Panaka never ran into Maul and Dooku after Anakin won the podrace.
- There is no cutscene where Maul fell into the hole or him battling the heartbroken Obi Wan. Darth Maul was never cut in half by Kenobi, probably to make the game more kid-friendly. Darth Maul was never defeated in the game, but he does not appear in future levels.
- Qui-Gon and Count Dooku never were stunned by a lightsaber. Rovio probably made it "stun" for the game to be more kid-friendly.
- Captain Typho did not appear in Rise of the Clones and Revenge of the Pork. Instead, Captain Panaka took the role of Typho.
- Dooku never fought in the outer parts of Geonosis
- Clone Troopers are Stormtroopers. However, in the movie, they have different designs.
- The seperatist council (except for the trade federation) is entirely absent
- The sequence before the Battle of Genosis and the Arena Battle is omitted.
- Lama Su and Taun We are completely absent from the game
- Boba Fett is shown in-armor in this game despite not donning armor until after Jango's death
- The clones never assist Kenobi in persuing Jango and Boba
- There is not a cutscene where Anakin Episode I works for Darth Maul. Also, Maul does not give Anakin some jobs in this game, but he does so in The Phantom Menace.
- The Battle of Genosis is the only Clone Wars battle to be shown.
- A majority of Order 66 is absent from the game in order to make the game more kid friendly
- Between the Invisible Hand and the Mustafar battle, the Battle of Kashyyk, and other sequences in Revenge of the Sith, are omitted.
- General Grievous never goes to Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith.
- The Pork Side section of Rebels starts in the episode "Droids in Distress", unlike the Bird Side that starts in "Spark of Rebellion".
- Clone Troopers were seen shooting blue blaster bolts when in the movie and the shows, but in this game, the bolts were red.
- This is the first and, so far, only Angry Birds game that allows pigs to directly combat birds, as, in the original Angry Birds, they fought eggs in the bonus King Pig levels, and in Bad Piggies, they were forced to defend from and evade the birds.
- In the game, the Battle Droids are yellow, but their Telepod figure is white.
