So far as that goes, Power Push will probably end up being the most valuable Dark Side upgrade. Force Crush and Dark Rise are both viable options, but neither is quite as good as Power Push. As for Fear the Dark Side…well, it’s both thematically satisfying and surprisingly useful during combat situations whenever it actually procs.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga – The Best Astromech Droid Upgrades
Distraction – Project a hologram that distracts nearby enemies for a period of time.
Droid Barge – Press interact while moving to slide into enemies, causing damage.
Astromech Socket Expert – Astromech Socket interactions can be bypassed or completed for bonus studs.
Super-Charged – Add a shockwave to stun prod attacks that damages nearby enemies.
The Astromech Droid class includes quite a few Star Wars characters not exactly known for their combat abilities, which certainly helps explain why most of that class’ upgrades at least help make Astromechs slightly more useful during fights.
So far as that goes, Super-Charged is certainly the best combat-based upgrade in this class. Droid Barge isn’t far behind, and Distraction is another one of those gimmicky abilities you’ll rarely use. Astromech Socket Expert is worth putting a point into (as every other relatively similar ability tends to be), but it’s not a priority by any means.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga – Best Protocol Droid Upgrades
Destructive Disassembly – Release a shockwave when disassembling that damages nearby enemies.
Paid Translator – Recieve bonus studs for translating alien languages.
Polished Plating – Add a chance of deflecting bolts fired from enemy weapons.
Turret Tune-Up – Bolts fired from Protocol Terminal Turrets will bounce off surfaces, increasing their chances of hitting enemies.
Much like Astromech Droids, most of the Protocol Droid upgrades are designed to try to help those always-helpful robots feel a little more useful in combat situations. Unlike Astromech Droids, even a fully-upgraded Protocol Droid will struggle to set itself apart during most battles.
