I just got Lego Star Wars - The Complete Saga for my son. It seems to autosave in some fashion. But it also warns me on exit that my progress will be lost since the last save. How can I save manually?

The only reason it asks to save if you exit the game is because it is possible to have picked up coins in the "level select" level. There aren't really any "normal" autosave points there. –  Jeff Mercado Jun 20 '11 at 3:39

It can't be done. You can trigger an autosave by finishing a level or buying an item, though.

In addition to these, it appears that I can save during free play. At least, it offers to let me save, though if I enter the same level again, it puts me back at the beginning. I guess it keeps track of canisters, studs, etc. –  Kyralessa Jun 30 '11 at 3:01

Don't worry about it - many games that use an autosave feature give a warning like this, even if it's just saved the game. You can read it as 'make sure you hit a checkpoint before you quit, otherwise you'll lose everything you've done since the last one'.

As long as you quit after hitting a checkpoint your progress will be saved.

So in this game, what's a checkpoint? Do I have to completely finish a level to trigger a save? –  Kyralessa Jun 20 '11 at 11:21
    
Yes, according to this LucasArts help page The link refers to the Windows version but I imagine the console versions are the same. –  Alex Jun 20 '11 at 14:21

Go to the bar in the start of a new game and you can create a new autosave under the character option. You can visit bars within the game to save at anytime...
