Star Wars & Legos: The Force is Still Powerful
I have a secret agenda: To get my girlfriend's five-year-old son interested in Star Wars, so that I don't have to just watch Pixar's summer blockbuster Cars 5 million times this winter after it comes out on DVD.
Thanks to a new video game, this plan actually has a chance of working out. It's called Star Wars Legos II, and we're both hooked.
Basically, it's the Star Wars story told through Lego toys: Blast a stormtrooper and he shatters into a bunch of Lego pieces. It's one of those rare games that is simple enough for kids to play and clever enough for adults to enjoy as well. At the moment, we're working through the original Star Wars story (and, by original, I mean the 1977 flick): The kid likes to play Luke, while I take Han or Obi Wan, depending on the scene. Now, he knows the names of all the characters and has started asking me to bring over my Star Wars trilogy DVDs.
The circle is now complete.
