Problem-Solving Skills Needed, but Great Star Wars Game

My 8-year old son loves Star Wars, so I decided to let him play this on his Nintendo Switch. Some of the puzzles are a tad difficult for him, and he asks for my assistance. I think it's a good learning opportunity, and he is getting better as he goes along. The level of difficulty your child experiences will likely depend on how many puzzle-type games your child has played. I think puzzles are probably appropriate for ages 8+, depending on their patience level and problem-solving experience. Reading-age is definitely a huge plus, if not necessary to play this game. I̵ ̵h̵a̵v̵e̵n̵'̵t̵ ̵s̵e̵e̵n̵ ̵a̵n̵y̵t̵h̵i̵n̵g̵ ̵o̵b̵j̵e̵c̵t̵i̵o̵n̵a̵b̵l̵e̵ ̵y̵e̵t̵.̵ ̵[EDIT] Since writing this review, I have seen one scene that may disturb some children. When battling Darth Maul, my son initially thought that both Jedi's survived (unlike the film), but in a surprise twist, Darth Maul defeats Qui-Gon Jinn. This is the one scene that is a little different, as he does not burst into Lego bricks like enemies do, but rather, he lays on the ground and speaks final words to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Normally, while there is a lot of cartoon fighting, characters merely burst into Lego bricks upon defeat. That's something to keep in mind for children that are more sensitive to fighting. If your child likes Star Wars, puzzles and fighting, this is a great game. If your child is impatient or too young, they will struggle when it comes to solving the levels. You can always play with your child using a second controller and lend a hand. EDIT: It's worth noting, so you know where I'm coming from, that I do not let my son watch the majority of the Star Wars films. I go by Common Sense Media's ratings, and have only allowed him to watch 2 films.

Common Sense failed to note that several of the female Lego characters “wear”/are printed with revealing attire. At one point a creature claws at a female character and her outfit is altered so she has an exposed midriff.
