Hey how’s it going guys! Welcome to the next installment in our rundown of the best Star Wars games ever. We’re aiming to feature the cream of the crop from a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve already covered the likes of Republic Commando, The Force Unleashed and Knights of the Old Republic. So if this sounds like something you’d be interested in then hit the subscribe and the notification bell for more videos like this. And don’t forget to tell us what your favourite Star Wars game is in the comments below.

Star Wars has left an indelible mark on pop-culture, and of all of its video game adaptations, it’s hard to argue that Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga hasn’t had the biggest cultural impact. 

Effectively starting its own genre, it spawned countless LEGO games based on popular film properties, remaining as beloved with players young and old to this day.

Although the first Lego Star Wars game dropped in 2005 (there’s that year again), this entry will focus on 2007’s The Complete Saga, which combined Lego Star Wars: The Video Game and its sequel Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, spanning the first six episodes of the Star Wars saga. You play through key scenes from the films, all told with the irreverent humour the series would become famous for. 

And behind the cutesy art style and the jokes, there’s a legitimately excellent game. Developers Traveller’s Tales make good use of the LEGO medium, throwing puzzles at you that require contraptions to be built out of everyone’s favourite Danish block toy, providing enough of a challenge for kids and adults alike. The spirit of creativity permeates throughout the entire game; if you want to play through a level with a different character, you can pick from over 160, all with their own animations and special abilities. 

There might be a LEGO game for every major film now, but none of them have managed to top the original. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is scheduled to release in 2021, and it’ll be interesting to see if it offers enough to take the top spot. Until then, you never forget your first.

And that’s a wrap on this edition of the best Star Wars video games ever. What did you think of Lego Star Wars? Please let me know in the comments below, I’d love to read your thoughts.
