  • Awesome, Dear Boy: Anthony Daniels has made a point that he enjoys reprising his role as C-3PO for The Force Awakens.
  • God Does Not Own This World: The Force Awakens notably has JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm's president Kathleen Kennedy as playable characters, but not series creator George Lucas.
  • The Other Darrin: Though this is largely averted for The Force Awakens, there are three major examples that crop up during the main story: Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, and Admiral Ackbar are voiced by Matt Sloan, Sam Witwer, and Tom Kane, respectively.

  • Refitted for Sequel: LEGO Star Wars was originally planned to feature Zam Wesell and a level featuring her, and there was even a Dummied Out character model. The Complete Saga gave her a playable slot, and finally included the level that was dropped from the original game.
  • Role Reprisal: In most games, the roles aren't done by the original actors, but The Clone Wars is an exception, being one of the first LEGO video games to have the cast from the TV show that it is based on to record new dialogue for the game; they even got James Earl Jones to do some voice clips for Darth Vader.
  • Spoiled by the Merchandise: The very first Star Wars game spoiled Revenge of the Sith as it came out about a month before the movie did. The lack of dialogue and changing of a few scenes did create a few deviations. The same thing goes for Pirates, which was released a couple weeks before On Stranger Tides.
  • What Could Have Been:

    • Some files for the original LEGO Star Wars game shows that Zam Wesell was planned to be in the game, as well as a wheelbike chase with Grievous. They brought Zam back for The Complete Saga, but never used the wheelbike chase, presumably due to already having a driving segment.
    • A level where you played as Anakin against the droid battleship in a Naboo Starfighter was planned for the first game (with a piece of the post-level cinematic shown in trailers) but was scrapped, most likely because Episode 1 already had the podracing level. It was included as a bonus level in The Complete Saga, redesigned to be more like that game's vehicle levels.
    • Matt the Radar Technician was going to be a playable character in The Force Awakens, but he was removed from the game, possibly due to legal reasons. Remnants of his character data can be found in the game files.
