What Causes Lego Star Wars To Crash & Not Load?

You might be worrying that your Nintendo Switch is broken but don’t panic just yet as the chances are it’s just an issue with the game itself. It could be that the game’s files have become corrupt, your saved data has become corrupted, or it’s a setting you have set on your Switch console.

If you try a few other games and don’t have any issues, then you know there is something with the Lego game causing the problem. Or if you have crashing and freezing issues with other games as well, then it may be caused by outdated software on your Switch.

What Will The Methods Fix?

Lego games have been available for the Nintendo Switch for a long time now, and just like other games, there will sometimes be the occasional issue. Below we have listed different methods which aim to hopefully fix most problems with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga such as:

  • Not loading
  • Not launching
  • Stuck on loading screen
  • Crashing
  • Freezing
  • Crash to Switch home screen
  • Stuck on Menus

Those are just a few different examples of what the methods will fix. If we didn’t list the issue you are having don’t worry as we can’t list all of the problems with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on the Switch!

Fix Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga Switch Stuck On Loading Screen & Freezing:

1. Check Switch Battery Level:

Make sure your Nintendo Switch console has plenty of battery. If you are playing Lego Star Wars with your Switch undocked, then you could have issues with the game freezing or not launching if the battery is low.

2. Update Switch

It is important to make sure that your Switch console has the latest system updates installed, to help with performance and fix any bugs or issues. If your software is outdated then that may be why the skywalker saga is freezing in-game or keeps crashing:

  • Go to System Settings
  • Select System and then “System update

3. Update Lego Star Wars

Sometimes you will need to wait for a future update for a game to fix any bugs or issues. However, if you do not have the latest game update installed then you will more than likely get freezing and not launching issues:

  • Turn on your Switch and make sure you are on the Home Screen
  • Hover over the Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Sage game icon
  • Press the + button on your right Joy-Con to bring up the game Options
  • Software update > Click on “Via the internet

4. Remove game card then reinsert:

It may sound simple, but if your Lego game card is not quite inserted properly or is even the wrong way around in the Switch, then the skywalker saga will not launch and will just keep crashing on startup. So take out the game and then push it back in again (it should make a small click).

5. Try undocked or docked:

If your game is crashing or freezing when you are playing it handheld and undocked, then try docking your Switch and playing it on your TV. Or if that’s when you get the issue then try playing undocked and see if one is causing you issues.

6. Switch User:

Try signing out and then switch users and try and launch the game again. There could be something conflicting between your user and the game. If you purchased a digital version of the skywalker saga then make sure you sign in with the profile that you purchased the game on.

7. Scan game files

If one of the game’s files was corrupted when either installing or updating, then this will stop lego star wars from launching. Luckily you can scan your Nintendo Switch for corrupted game data to then hopefully repair any files or data:

  • Go to System settings from the home screen > Then select Data management
  • Software > Select Lego Star Wars then select “Check for corrupted data

8. Reinstall Skywalker Saga

Delete the game from your Switch and then install it again. This may fix any issues that you are having with the game. If you did install the game originally on an SD card then try installing it on your internal storage:

  • Go to Settings > Data management
  • Select Software > Go to Lego Skywalker Saga > “Delete Software
  • Once it is uninstalled then installing the game again

We hope the above methods have helped fix any launching, loading, or crashing issues in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on your Nintendo Switch.

If you are still having issues with the game not working on your Switch then you might need to think about resetting your Nintendo Switch, or you will need to wait until a new patch/update is released for the game that resolves the issue you are having.
