* SequelEscalation: The first ''LEGO Star Wars'' game had many different characters, but suffered from many characters being unable to build and a crippling lack of variety. The sequel added the ability to build without the Force, and riding vehicles and mounts. The third game added entire galaxies to explore, with even more characters.

A sixth game, known as ''LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga'', covers all nine films in the Skywalker Saga, and is due for release in 2020. The game is not an UpdatedRerelease made up of ''The Complete Saga'', ''The Force Awakens'', and new content based on ''The Last Jedi'' and ''The Rise of Skywalker'', but a completely new experience. It's suggested that the game will be the absolute biggest of its kind in terms of scope and scale, [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters with a cast of hundreds of playable characters]], and will feature [[WideOpenSandbox open-world elements]] that previous games only scratched the surface with.

The games eventually got combined in a CompilationRerelease, known as ''The Complete Saga'', which improved problems from the first two games, and adding in new content as well. These ''Star Wars'' games made TT Games a lot of money, which resulted in the company making similar licensed LEGO games like ''VideoGame/LEGOIndianaJones'' and ''VideoGame/LEGOHarryPotter''. A fourth LEGO ''Star Wars'' game that focused on ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars The Clone Wars]]'' and its first two seasons was released as ''LEGO Star Wars III'', and a fifth game, based on ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' which also bridges the gap between ''Return of the Jedi'' and ''The Force Awakens'', released in 2016.

** This game feels notably different from all future LEGO games. The most jarring difference is the cut scenes being a more straightforward retelling of the original movies with a joke or two slipped in here and there, rather than the over-the-top cartoonish wackiness the later games would employ. A lot of features are also missing from this game as well, such as the power bricks, the golden bricks, the ability to dodge and do melee attacks, building without the Force, custom figures, and a number of other features. Many of these nuances were removed when ''The Complete Saga'' came around, though the cut scenes remain untouched.

* {{Nerf}}: In ''Lego Star Wars II'', the high jump option was removed. While not such a problem for General Grievous, who at least has lightsabers, it made Jar-Jar completely useless.
