It's not surprising someone combined the story and settings of the geek-tacular Star Wars franchise with the nerd-licious Lego aesthetic. What is surprising is how much fun Lego Star Wars offers, with the ability to switch among a wide variety of characters from the prequel trilogy, including the oft-maligned yet flexible Jar Jar Binks.
The demo consists of one short mission from the full game and an exploratory mode. In the mission, you control Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and the silver android that looks like C-3PO (yes, I know it's TC-14) through the beginning scenes of The Phantom Menace. Don't worry: Jar Jar is nowhere to be seen--yet. The controls are keyboard-based, logical, and different for each character. Attack or defend with one key, then use another for special moves, which for the Jedis involves the Force. There's a special thrill in using telekinesis to rearrange Lego doors and contraptions into new objects, not to mention throwing small droids willy-nilly. After you've finished the mission, you can switch among 10 characters and explore the federation ship at your leisure. If you're a fan of either Star Wars or Legos, be sure to give this demo a look.
