Lego Star Wars Traveller's Tales / Eidos Interactive 2005

This is probably one of the better kids' games to hit the market in awhile, and that it's clever and charming enough to appeal to adults is a testament to that fact. The world's most successful film series meets the world's most successful toy in this brilliantly conceived alliance where you can play the most memorable and exhilarating scenes from The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith including pod racing on Mos Espa, the repelling of the droid onslaught in the Genosian arena and Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon's fatal fight with Darth Maul. Besides controlling the likes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Anakin Skywalker and R2-D2, notorious dark side enemies such as Jango Fett, Darth Maul and Count Dooku appear in thrilling showdowns. As you progress through the game you unlock many new characters including those from the Dark Side, and you must switch between them to solve puzzles using their special abilities. Each episode is broken up into multiple chapters, each re-creating memorable sequences from the films. You'll only have control over a single character at a time, but you'll usually have at least one computer-controlled companion with you, and at times that number can grow to a healthy half-dozen. You can switch between any characters in your party on the fly. Jedi characters come equipped with lightsabers and the ability to "Force move" various objects; Astromech droids (the R2D2 trash-can-style droids) can hover for short distances and can also be used to unlock certain doors; and characters like Padme Amidala are armed solely with a blaster and don't have the Jedi double-jump, but they can use grappling hooks to pull their way up to otherwise unreachable areas. Every level has a ton of puzzles that can only be solved by a specific character in your party or by several characters working together. There are several big boss fights and straight-up combat too. Though it's not too difficult a game and can be finished fairly quickly, the replayability with different characters opens up many different areas.
