First off, let me say that this game is a very nice addition to any Wii library. It is very fun to play and fills in the gap between episodes 3 and 4. But, there are 2 main problems with it.
1. The graphics arent the best, but its on the Wii so u probably didnt expect XBox-quality graphics.
2. When i saw the trailer for it (the one where he pulls down the star destroyer and walks away all cool and everything), i couldnt wait to try it with the Wiimote and Nunchuk. Well guess what... in the Wii version, its only a CUT SCENE. I was VERY disappointed.
But, other than that, its probably one of my favorite Star Wars games (behind Battlefront 1 and 2). I also liked the fact that u could level up your force powers and customize your blade all the way down to the hilt. Besides... which Star Wars fan doesnt want to actually swing a lightsaber with the Wiimote? I mean, every time i wanted to swing, i thought i had to press a button or do some insane-ly long button combo. But all u have to do is move the Wiimote. You cant get an experience like that playing it on a ps3 or 360.

Horrible, absolutely horrible. Its games like this that make me glad i own all 3 next gen systems. Its choppy, glitchy, the graphics are down right horrible. The gameplay is bad, the lighting is bad, the texturing is bad, the clipping is bad, uh its just bad. I got it on the ps3 now and its incredible!! I was hoping the controls would be great and make up for the graphics but uh its just bad. Im not a graphics junkey either. my favorite system is NES, but this thing...uh its horrible!!!
This game after all the hype satisfied my star wars cravings. It's a bit short, but I couldn't put the controller down once I picked it up.
The Force powers in this game are sick!! I only used my lightsaber to decapitate guys that were suspended in the air because of the force. Just throw dudes around and whip giant objects at an entire fleet of enemies. It rules. What I would do to have force powers.
Good story, great graphics (hdmi cables), great attack moves..decent controls. The wii motion doesn't always do what you want it to do. But this is a definite rental, no brainer. It's like if Kratos had a lightsaber...Just imagine how insane that would be.
