LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy was the very first LEGO game I played, and easily my favourite.
I bought this game used for the GameCube, and it had cost $25, and it was worth it. Anyone sceptical of buying this or it's remake, go out and buy it. Even if you don't like Star Wars (but who doesn't like it?)
Manual and Box
The boxart for LEGO games are, in my opinion, not the best. And the instruction manuals suck. Though, the boxart for LEGO Star Wars II was not very good. I mean, it does symbolise the essence of Star Wars, it is not very exciting. I would've preferred a LEGO-remake of the Star Wars Battlefront II box. The manual was pretty good, however, having enough info to tie me over.
Playability and Replaying
The game is very, very interesting. Though I think it would've been better with split-screen. It has tons of well-hidden Minikits and Red Bricks. The many enemies, secrets and puzzles make replaying the game even more awesome.
With tons of Star Wars characters, this game was well worth the characters, and spending the studs. Easily tons of unique, and creative characters, along with creating your own characters, this game is full of 'em.
I don't care about graphics, as I don't think they make a good game. Automatically, it's a 4. It would be pretty good if the backgrounds for the levels were MADE OF LEGO! Though, I don't care.
I don't really have anything else to say, though I don't like the spaceship levels that much.
