The plot for this game was very well done. They did a good job of incorporating the game into the existing Star Wars lore. They also did a fantastic job with the Wii motion controls. It is definitely one of the more responsive games that make full use of the Wii remotes.

Unfortunately the graphics are a bit sub-par even for the Wii. As another reviewer stated, the opening cinematic showed the star destroyers as gray triangles with a few blocks on them. While I wasn't expecting PS3/X-Box 360 quality, even the Legos games had better graphics than this one did. The camera control was horrid, there were many times where the camera would get a head of me and I couldn't see where I was going or what was attacking me and it would take a bit for me to get it flipped around. Personally it would have been better if they added an over the shoulder view, but that's just me.

Overall it is a good rent, but a bit disappointing.

Overall, the game is a good time. There are a couple of glitches, such as lack of sound and yes there are some environment issues...but what Star Wars games doesn't have that.

Force Controls are pretty easy to handle, but take a little getting used to. Your light saber is something entirely different as there really is no control. You can swing wildly and take some people out, but don't count on it for any major battles. Throwing your light saber is a nice feature and works well for taking down airborne enemies, but once it is out of your hands, be prepared to lose a lot of life bars to blaster shots. I basically only use it for blocking and rely on the force and movable objects to take down enemies.

So again, overall its a fun game just dont look grasp your attention for more than a few hours.
