Great fun, but more intense violence than most LEGO games.

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars has a whole lot of good things going for it, and a few flaws that tend to stand out. On the positive side, it has the same witty sense of humor (especially in the cinematic scenes) as its predecessors, along with the same surprise-filled exploration aspect and incredibly enjoyable character-collecting aspect. The hub world (from which you can enter into different episodic missions) is astoundingly vast, with new areas opening up constantly. And the non-linear mission set-up is a nice change of pace for the LEGO games -- you can jump around the story, always having at least three new mission options open to you. While the massive battle scenes are technologically impressive, it sometimes feels too chaotic. You will frequently lose track of your character. And the mission levels are sometimes incredibly long, requiring a half-hour or more to finish. That wouldn't be a bad thing if you were able to save along the way -- but you're not. On the whole, this is still a great game, though, and should please most fans.
