Unlimited hero or villain
Start Instant Action mode, choose your levels, but do not launch. Go down to the options, then go on "Hero". Change the options here as follows: Best Player, 4 Points, and the time for the hero to become available to 4 seconds. Your hero or villain can still die and the meter runs out, but you only need to kill four people for 4 points to unlock the hero or villain again. Also, if you get the points when you are playing as the hero or villain, when you die when playing as the hero or villain they still count as the points -- you can pick to play as them immediately.
Go to Instant Action, select your levels, but before you start go to the options menu. Select "Hero" then change options to Best Player, Time Limit 1 second, and the time for hero to become available to "Always". You can start the game selecting the hero, and when you die you can pick them again immediately.
Easy space battle kills
First, ensure that the enemies shields are down, then select a soldier with a blaster rifle. Take a fast ship and fly directly into the docks (it has a blue film over it), land, and get out. All of the enemies will be lightly armed because they are pilots. Open fire. Most will not return fire. Also, most enemy ship have an objective to destroy inside them.
Lock on to a structure such as the life support system or bridge. Make a preliminary strafing run straight along the ship. After passing the target, pull up with full thrusters. When the targeting arrow goes from the front of the screen to the back of the screen, decrease all engine power. Continue pulling back until you see the target. Line up with the target and do a half roll. This maneuver will allow you to make several runs, unloading on the target and avoiding as much enemy fighters as possible.
While in a space battle, take a transport to the enemy's space cruiser for sabotage. Land and make sure no one is in it or they will destroy it. When no one is in it, it will stay there for the rest of the battle. When you die, the transport acts as a command post for your team so you can go into the enemy ship much faster than taking another fighter from your hanger.
This following is a list of the battle ship's weak points.
Auto turrets: Located in the ship's interior Enter the ship's interior and you will see a cylinder shaped console with different monitors. Use two pilot bombs to destroy it.
Life support system: Enter the ship's interior and to the left should be a door. Enter it and you will see a giant blue screen ahead. Destroy it with three bombs.
Engines: Enter the interior, then turn to the right. Go through the door and destroy the four giant glowing tubes with three bombs.
You can always repair your shields. Just use the torch, but do not get too close to the glass or it will not work. This will take awhile, but is helpful. Also on ground battles you can use the torch to slice (hijack) enemy vehicles.
