I played with lego's casually as a kid, my younger days had me frequenting the usage of Lincoln Logs and then moved on to Kinex later on. Legos were there, but usually I'd just play with action figures, pretending Batman was the captain of the USS Enterprise with Han Solo as his first mate.
I'm saying this because I'm a geek, I grew up a geek, matured into a casual geek, and now spend my time reminiscing about the glory days of my geekhood with with fellow geeks. Nostalgia is a powerful and emotional experience. Not just in the 'weepy-weepy' sense, but in the sense of bliss and full-on, unbridled excitement.
If nostalgia is what you're looking for and you want a great rush of that drug called 'awesome', then LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is just what you're looking for. Some may fault it for it's inclusion of the prequels, but to ignore that they'd happened, while being a GREAT idea, would actually limit the gameplay and fun of this thing. It embraces the prequels, but without the annoying dialogue and wodden performances, the LEGO version actually seems to make the prequels look surprisingly good. The original trilogy is where those nostalgia kicks come in. Being Leia and hooking up with Captain Antilles while trying to get off the rebel ship or running around the Jundland Wastes with Ben Kenobi are just samples of the awesomeness of the game!
Break stuff and collect the pieces, destroy bad guys with blasters or lightsabers, or just run around in the LEGO versions of these classic locales... no matter what you do: LEGO nostalgia has never been more enjoyable.

This is the most awesome game ever. I have been a Star Wars fan since birth and this is the most fun game linked to the series i have ever played. I bought this game because it was sooooo addicting. Thank you LEGO.
I had episodes 1-3 on the PS2 and upgraded to this title the day I got my PS3. The concept is great and this one was well done. I like the alternate playing modes. Great for kids and fans of the movies. Buy it after you try it (not for everyone).
