LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (2006) – PS2; PSP
Now we’re talking - the same LEGO Star Wars gameplay, but this time applied to the original, superior trilogy of movies. Yet again the results were nothing short of spectacular. With over 50 playable characters and a neat sideline in collectables, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is officially the greatest Star Wars game on planet earth. Officially.
Best bit: Seeing Princess Leia in her golden bikini. Still surprisingly hot after all these years, even in LEGO form.
Star Wars: Lethal Alliance (2006) – PSP
OK, so the Force wasn’t all that strong in this one, but it was still good-looking enough, challenging enough and all round Star Wars-y enough to earn it a reprieve from Lord Vader’s Death Grip. If Ubisoft does commit to a Lethal Alliance sequel, let’s hope for improved controls and more varied gameplay.
Best bit: The story, which bridged the gap between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.
