George Lucas, I seriously want to know where the hell you got any idea from the Star Wars series.. Did you just wake up and say.. I know! JEDIS! LIGHTSABERS! C3P0! But, one strange idea.. Now your a multi-millionaire and thats just with merchandise alone. But I do remember as a child having the LEGO Star Wars characters and ships! Now, If you don't know what LEGO is, then you must live under the rock. LEGO is basically blocks with holes and little sections, which all connect together to make.. MASSIVE LEGO! wooooo! So merge the two, and you have a video game! But will the game suffer he same old boring, basic Star Wars games. Which only one Star Wars games can only be called good. Which is Battlefront.

LEGO Star Wars is definately a keeper for Star Wars fans. The game goes through the first 3 episodes of the series (Thats 1, 2 and 3 for all you n00bs). Basically when you first play through Story Mode you go through all the major characters of the trilogy, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padme, Jar Jar (shudders) and many more. You go through cutesy cut scenes and addictive gameplay, while using the force to solve tricky puzzles. You also fight against the famous enemies and battle against all the robots and clones on your way to the final Episode 3 showdown, with future Darth Vader.

The graphics are basic but thorough, the cut-scenes are nothing special, but the LEGO charateristics are cool to watch. also when you chop droids in half there parts scatter all over the place.. Just like in real LEGO!

The gameplay is addictive and lasting. The game has little LEGO pieces as currency, so you can buy Characters and Cheats to help you on your quest to ultimate Jedi. Where you unlock an extra bonus.

The games major flaw is its simpleness. The game is definately made for children, with limitless lives and easy bosses and enemies, the game is easily basically completed in about a day or two by any normal gamer. But the currency and getting to ultimate Jedi status is long and frustrating. To the brink of sucking LEGO pieces from plants.

Overall a great Star Wars games to add the the massive collection of 1. LucasArts really need to release an RPG style game which offer 3 or 6 of the episodes. A through and entertaining Star Wars romp, instead of boring.. Run here, kill 40 millions droids, fight bosses. Done.
