"I'm going to rip your..." Well, let's just say that you know the rest of the quote if you've played the game. This surprise hit was a confluence of multiple factors: 1) An original, on-rails, arcade-style shooting game to take advantage of the Wii Remote; 2) An over-the-top, profanity-laden, gore fest that seemed remarkably out of place on a Nintendo system; and 3) A surprisingly well-designed and replayable game. You just HAD to play to see what unbelievable thing happened next.
For anyone who missed Traveller's Tales' original Lego releases at the end of the PS2/Xbox/GCN generation in 2005 and 2006, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga was a lovely, kids-friendly, multi-player reprieve from Wii waggle and party games. Yes, this 2007 compilation emphasizes collecting things, but it is served up with oodles of fan service and surprising wit. Star Wars fans will enjoy tons of themed levels, enjoyable side quests, and recognizable characters.
