Star wars: force unleashed was a bad game... anyways:
Maybe the disk isnt read rite by your psp. maybe the disk is wrong?
Or it could just be that you dont use the directional buttons for gameplay, just the analog stick. XD

My scroll in my psp is broken


if im not mistaken you are talking about a problem with the directional buttons. if it is that, here's the solution for that. you have to take apart your PSP, you will see where the directional buttons go. you will have to open up the little strip that is underneath the buttons. you don't need to open up the strip completely. get a Q-tip , get it damp with some alcohol, rub the bottom contacts and the upper. after rubbing it with the tip that has the alcohol, you will rub it with the other side of the Q-tip that is dry. after all this is done, you can put strips back together. they don't have to glued back together. put your PSP back together and it should work. see picazzkikronu.jpg

Down arrow key not working properply; cursor keeps moving up on its own: sometimes doesn't respond to down arrow key being pressed


u probably have sticky stuff and dirt in the directional pad, try this:

take the battery out, make sure the power is off, pour a little alcohol in the the crack of the directional pad, then press the directional pad in the different directions to loosen it up, finally let the psp sit for a few hours til the alcohol dries (or blow in it) that sould loosen everything up, if that does not work you will have to open the unit and clean the pad thorougly...

Directional buttons work fine, until I start playing a game


Ok. navigate to system settings and scroll down to RESTORE SYSTEM SETTINGS, after that turn off your psp and wait for about 3 minutes and turn it back on.
Write back if this doesn't help.
