I've just come back from a mall.  In the mall, I had gone to EB Games and I played some of Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy.  It's really awesome so far but I haven't played the whole game.  Just some of the game.

The levels that I played were Secret Plans (A New Hope), Through The Jundland Wastes (A New Hope), and the beginning of Jabba's Palace (Return of the Jedi) [Note: I did not get up to the point where you battle Jabba the Hutt's pet rancor].

I loved the first Lego game,  play it all the time with my nephew.  I hope this game improved the default keys for two players; you can't fit two people on a keyboard like that!  I hate having to reset them all.

My sister bought this game for my nephew's birthday, I have to wait till the end of October to play it now! lol

I played the Demo over the weekend. I have to say that it's a lot of fun. If I had an XBOX 360, I'd have bought it.

I don't think so.

I didn't know you had a Mac....great graphics on those, but kinda ****** when it comes to available games.

One question....can you play the Original Dark Forces on later Mac OS versions?

Lego SW 1 is. I saw it at an Apple store, so SWL II should be coming soon.

Good question. I played that one on my old system 9 mac. I only have a handful of games and the ones I play on a more regular basis, like Galactic Battlegrounds, all had OSX updates, except for Civilization II. Since I completed Dark Forces, I never bothered to look for the upgrade.

Do they make it for the MAC?
Lego SW 1 is. I saw it at an Apple store, so SWL II should be coming soon.

I must confess that I've been thinking about a 360, so if I do break down, SW Lego two will definitely be a purchase.

I got Lego Star Wars 2 The Original Trilogy for XBOX last week.  I beat and won the whole game.  I just still need to go back and pick up what I missed.  However, I did not like the yub yub victory theme in the game.  I would have much rather preferred the Return of the Jedi Special Edition victory theme.

If you've only beaten the story mode, you may have at best beaten 50% of the game.

I've beaten almost every level on story mode, thebattle of Hoth and the level where you destroy the Death Star II I need to get true Jedi Status in story mode.  I finally found the red brick that allows you to purchase invincibility, so I can go back and play them again.

Did you also notice the price for the Obi-Wan, Yoda, Anakin ghost characters?   :o

I've managed to get the vast majority of the gold bricks, with only one minkit canister eluding me (the one with the nigh-impossible-on-a-PC green flyover trick in the "Rebel Attack" (Death Star) level of ANH.  I've beaten them all in story and free play mode, imported the characters/minkits from L:SW 1, and I fiddled around with one of the "secret" levels outside the Cantina last night.  I've gotten all 10 bounty hunter missions, and all that remains inside the Cantina is the Super Story mode on TESB and ROTJ, and the character and minikit bonuses, and I'm complete. 

I think that the one extra that will do more good than anything else is the "score x" extra on several levels.  I think it's pretty much impossible to beat some of the character bonus levels without one.  I'm gradually going through the more "score heavy" levels to increase my total so I can at least get the double score extra.

Overall, the game is great, and a worthy successor (and dare I say improvement) on the superb L:SW 1 game.  Loads of fun.

I know the one you're talking about!  I think I may have to enlist a friend's help and try to get it with two players.

Is there a way to do a super Jedi jump or something.  On free play in the Emperor's throne room in the last level of ROTJ, there's a bunch of stuff way up high.  My AI comrade can do these super jumps to get up there, but I can't.

Is the AI partner just cooler than me, or is there a way to do those kind of jumps (I'm talking about practically flying; it's not the double jump)?
