A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, there was a toy company called LEGO. Star Wars was the first licensed theme for this company. In 2005, they made LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game which covered the prequel trilogy that consists of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. The game was so successful, that it gained a sequel focusing on the classic movies A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The games were combined in a Compilation Re-release. The series spun-off into Non-Star Wars games like LEGO Indiana Jones and LEGO Harry Potter. A fourth game focusing on The Clone Wars was released, with a fifth based on The Force Awakens announced for 2016.

Tropes

  • Butt Monkey: C-3PO and R2-D2.
  • Call Forward: The Bonus Stage in the first game is a teaser for the sequel.
  • Can't Use Stairs: Protocol droid characters like C-3PO can't jump or navigate stairs. Many levels have sections that require the player to go through an elaborate puzzle solving process in order to move the droids across the area that the human characters can easily jump or climb a staircase to access.
  • May the Farce Be with You: The games are a parody of Star Wars.

LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game

  • Adapted Out: The game interestingly starts off the Attack of the Clones story with Obi-Wan going to Kamino, skipping everything involving Anakin. The GBA version at least adds in Anakin's visit back to Tatooine.
    • The Complete Saga fills in the blanks by including the level where you chase Zam Wessel, originally intended to be in the first game before it got cut.
  • Bonus Stage - A short prelude into A New Hope.
  • Bowdlerization/Disneyfication: They changed a few of Revenge Of The Sith's scenes, Anakin doesn't murder children, but a Jedi, and doesn't force choke Padme.
  • Dueling Player Characters / Fighting Your Friend: Due to requiring two playable characters on the screen at all times, after Obi-Wan and Anakin make their way through the final Episode III level, they have to fight each other. However, there's only one way it'll turn out.
  • Dynamic Entry: The final cutscene of Episode One's "Escape from Theed" stage has our heroes jump into a corridor from above and break their fall with a pair of unfortunate battle droids. Then Obi-wan stomps on one of them for good measure.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first GBA port of the game was nothing like any other later game:
    • It had nearly twice the health and it could be temporarily extended in certain levels.
    • There was a regenerating bar to control the usage of the different special abilities.
    • Dying was not so trivial
    • The L and R buttons had their respective functions in the different games switched.
  • Silly Walk: The final cutscene in Episode One's "Escape from Theed" stage has two battle droids on guard duty. One of them starts goose-stepping.

LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga

  • Ascended Meme: One of the achievements is "Shoot First", awarded for playing as Han and gunning down teammate Greedo on the Mos Eisley level (referencing the "Han Shot First" meme from the Special Edition Orwellian Retcon of the confrontation between Han and Greedo).
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Princess Leia's slap from II is reused by Padme Amidala.
  • Compilation Re Release: It has all the levels from the first two games.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

  • Bonus Feature Failure: The 100 Percent Completion prize is... A Stealth Bomber, for the flight levels, something that you will probably never use due to preference for just preferring to control characters on normal levels.
  • Butt Monkey: As a Running Gag, clones keep getting non-lethally stepped/landed on by larger vehicles during the cutscenes.
  • The Cameo: Darth Vader's helmet makes a brief appearance in Clone Wars, when Palpatine is playing golf in his office.
  • Wingding Eyes: Padme and Anakin both get hearts in their eyes during the first battle.
