Generation Rewind is back with another look at some of highs and lows of the past decade of gaming.
Episode 5 sends us back in time to 2007. Before there was The LEGO Movie, before there was LEGO comic book adaptations, before Harry Potter made even more money with the help of LEGO, there was the one franchise that put LEGO games firmly in the mainstream, LEGO Star Wars.
It all began back in 2005, a game release based on the prequel movies surprised everyone, as it was actually fun, as opposed to the movies. The following year saw the only Star Wars trilogy that matters get the construction toy treatment and although the handheld version didn’t see much praise the console release sales soared with critics praising it for it’s honest and yet humorous take on the Star Wars movies.
Fast forward another year and TT Games decided to merge the two games and create LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, the greatest game in the franchise, possibly the best LEGO game, and this episode is here to explain why.
