Why is LEGO Rock Band here? It's nothing like LEGO Star Wars or any of the games covered.

I am guessing someone misread the scope of the page.

LEGO Rock Band isn't an adaptation of any movie or comic universe. It fits more in the Rock Band series than the LEGO series. It's not a platformer, doesn't run on the LEGO Star Wars engine. And it's not covered on the LEGO Games Wiki. LEGO Games Wiki covers LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures LEGO Batman: The Video Game LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes LEGO The Lord of the Rings LEGO City Undercover LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The LEGO Movie Video Game LEGO The Hobbit LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

These listed games have things in common. They follow a formula that started with LEGO Star Wars with some improvements here and there. However, LEGO Rock Band uses the Rock Band formula which is different from the LEGO Adaptation Game formula. It's not a LEGO Adaptation Game. It's a Rock Band game with LEGO minifigures. And I'm wishing for TT Games to make a compilation of all their games similar to what they did with LEGO Star Wars Complete Saga. Rock Band's non platforming rhythm elements just wouldn't fit.

Should Legends of Chima: Laval's Journey and the upcoming Lego Ninjago: Nindroids be featured here? They feature the same platforming/puzzle/action gameplay as the movie-based games. Having LEGO Rock Band on the page pretty much throws out the "Movie-based-games only" thing anyway.

I must've missed something... Is "Lego Marvel Super Heroes" already out?

I've been trying to find a trope to fit a particular issue in Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7, but either there isn't one or I don't know what it's called.

The issue: Harry might as well not be in the Free Play part of the game; if he wasn't stuck in your party by default, I'd never use him.

In Years 1-4, he had four rare or unique abilities: Expecto Patronem, perfect broomstick riding, Invisibility Cloak, and Parseltongue. The first wasn't used very often except as an in-character replacement for Ridikkulus, but the other three were used in a lot of puzzles.

By the later parts of Years 5-7, anyone can use a broomstick (in the only two places you get to use them as such), most everyone has Expecto Patronem, and cauldrons with Invisibility Potion litter the place (and there's only one puzzle that uses invisibility anyway). Ron and Hermione have been gifted with one truly unique ability each, which are used in practically every room, and (due to the requirement to follow some spectacularly bad concept degradation on the author's part) Ron now has the ability to hiss at random and crack any Parseltongue code (rather than just the plot-required one).

So I was thinking of something like "Story-Induced Redundancy", to cover situations where the development of the characters to fit the plot removes all the uniqueness from one of them, reducing them to space-filling eye-candy at best.

You want Lost and Found for this type of query.

What about the first crossover LEGO game, Creator Harry Potter? I don't see any info on it in here... but I don't know enough to add any.
