Looks like I forgot to post yesterday. It would be ever so easy to cheat and change the time backward by, oh, thirty minutes, and who would know the difference but myself? That, however, would be cheating. I would prefer to be honest. No, I duly failed this challenge due to my own forgetfulness. I’m not going to blame the enthralling demo of Lego Star Wars II that I’d been playing for the last few hours.
It is a fun game. You start out as Lego versions of Ben Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, See-Threepio and R2-D2 and must make your way to the Mos Eisely cantina. Along the way, you encounter Lego stormtroopers, which you must defeat by reconstructing Lego obstacles and vehicles, including the AT-ST walker as seen in Return of the Jedi. For me, nothing makes a video game as entertaining as allowing the player to take control of an overpowered vehicle, especially one with a blaster. Once you reach the Cantina, Lego Han Solo and Lego Chewbacca join the party. You must guide them to the hangar, where they join the Jedi and the droids in a shootout with a mysterious, hooded figure. When the shootout ends, so does the demo, however, you get the opportinuty to try it again with a custom-designed Lego figure.
Now, am I going to run out and buy it? Nah. Don’t get me wrong, it is a fun game, but I don’t really see myself playing such a game often enough or long enough to make it worth the asking price.
