|With a whimsical take on the original Star Wars Trilogy -- A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi -- LEGO Star Wars II for PC follows the Rebel Alliance's battle to dismantle the Galactic Empire and rebuild a galaxy in pieces. From Darth Vader's pursuit of Princess Leia aboard her blockade runner to a showdown on the reconstructed Death Star, the game includes even more of the family-friendly LEGO action, puzzles and humor that earned the original LEGO Star Wars such popularity and acclaim.|
LEGO Star Wars II also has many new features to offer. For the first time ever, certain on-foot levels feature constructible vehicles and creatures that players can ride or exit at will. Also, in LEGO Star Wars II's Free Play mode, gamers can customize more than 50 new playable characters by mixing and matching body parts, forming the likes of "Stormbacca" and "Chew Vader." And by using a game save from the first LEGO Star Wars, as many as 56 additional characters can be unlocked for Free Play -- that's more than 100 characters total, plus thousands of possible creations! Other additions include character-specific attacks and maneuvers, Power Brick power-up items, playable mini-kits, an improved two-player camera, tougher puzzles, increased difficulty levels and more.

pretty fun game11/26/2006
I'm not a serious gamer, but I am somewhat of a star wars fan and found this game quite amusing and pretty fun. According to the in-game clock I've spent about 75 hours on it so far, more than most of the other gamecube games I've bought (RE4, Road kill, and Rogue Squadron II being the only others that compare in my library). I did not play the first game in this series but would for sure recommend this one.
