Even if you've played through LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, chances are good that you've missed something. We're not talking minikits or unlockable rooms - we're more about the in-jokes, unexpected events and laugh-out-loud moments packed into the game. We've played through the whole game and found our favorite giggle points and surprises - hit that Movies tab above then sit back and smile. May the farce be with
We've done our best to try to convince you of the ultimate supremacy of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, but, as it turns out, the world either has no need of our advice or takes it very seriously. Selling 1.1 million copies (or "units" as industry pundits call them) in its very first week of being available to the masses, LEGO Star Wars II has cemented the value of family friendly titles in this blood-soaked, violence-mongering industry.
Of course, it helps that the game is

Gotham City's self-made superhero, Batman, looks like he's getting suited up for another gaming adventure, but this time the DC Comics icon is going to be Lego-ised courtesy of developer Traveller's Tales.
With two excellent Lego Star Wars games already under its development belt - the second of which, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, is out next Monday (although we spotted it on sale in more than one shop today...) - the prospect of Traveller's Tales making a
Playing through LEGO Star Wars II inspired us to take on the foolhardy task of recreating the entire original trilogy out of the game's many cutscenes. Just to make it more interesting, we gave ourselves a time limit of two minutes. So here you have it: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, in LEGO form, delivered in less than 120 seconds. Click the Movies tab and enjoy!

It might be out tomorrow, but we just had to bring you these images of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, because they might just be some of the best screenshots we've ever seen. First up we've got Leia in that golden bikini, trapped in Jabba the Hut's cavernous palace. It's weird, but we like it.

To celebrate today's UK release of Let's Make a Soccer Team! we've teamed up with Sega to give away a PlayStation 2 and a copy of the game. Five runners-up will net themselves a copy of the game.
Let's Make a Soccer Team! has been a wild success in Japan and looks set to do well here too, with its engaging football management gameplay. You'll be given the opportunity to create your own team from scratch in one of six countries and then lead them to success against

We've got stormtroopers warming their arses, an intergalactic snowman and a frumpy looking Princess Leia in this latest batch of Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy shots, the brick-based action sequel which is out for numerous platforms this September.
Following on from the success of the first Lego Star Wars, the sequel takes gamers through the original three films in George Lucas' sci-fi odyssey, giving players the chance to control the fate of such iconic
How does Darth Vader reveal that he's Luke Skywalker's father when he can't talk? That was the question posed by publisher LucasArts when they sent over new screens of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. Will the mute, plastic Dark Lord of the Sith use charts? Puppets? Obscene pantomime? They wouldn't tell us the answer, but they promise it'll be

The lightsaber-duelling action sequel, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, will give you the chance to ride, pilot or drive your favourite vehicles from the first - and best - three Star Wars films, all lovingly reproduced in studded digital plastic. The Original Trilogy is due in September for every current console, so take a peek at our new screens to see what's on offer.
You'll be able to jump in and out of vehicles during some levels - unlike in the first Lego Star
