* AdaptedOut: One of the biggest drawbacks of most Lego games is not what's in it, but what's isn't. Many of the games usually have some character or scene missing, despite it being in the original source material. For example, ''The Lego Movie'' completely omits several of the licensed characters that make appearances in the film itself, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Milhouse]], [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Michelangelo]] and [[Film/HarryPotter Dumbledore]]. Furthermore, [[spoiler:the cameo by Millennium Falcon and its crew]] is omitted despite its relevance to the plot, and one of the major plot points is completely glossed over - [[spoiler:TheReveal that the entire story is really just a boy playing with his Lego is kept, but the subsequent reveal that Lord Business and his plot to freeze everything is based on his father's desire to stop his son from messing up his Lego kits is cut out of the story, removing all context for Lord Business' HeelFaceTurn]].

"LEGO Adaptation Game" is a catch-all term for a loosely-connected series of MultiPlatform {{Video Game}}s made by Creator/TravellersTales, based on combining the license for Toys/{{LEGO}} with that of another work, generally a film, as tie-ins to licensed toy lines based on the same films LEGO is producing and selling around the same time. With few exceptions, the games are action platforming games with the characters and stages all consisting of LEGO interpretations of the licensed work in question, with tongue-in-cheek, often parodical {{Cutscene}}s poking fun at both those works and [[BuiltWithLego the fact that they are made out of LEGO bricks]].

Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: Each playable character has their own gimmick, and in story mode, every character you are given ''will'' have their gimmicks be mandatory to use in order to progress. The only exceptions are times when a second character is included just for the sake of multiplayer mode.

* MovesetClone: Inevitably, considering [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the amount of characters]] within each game, there will be ''a lot'' of them that have familiar, identical, or otherwise the exact same attacks or body language.
