Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a video game based on the Star Wars-themed toy line by the Lego Group. It is a combination of the game Lego Star Wars: The Video Game and its sequel Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, which includes all of the first six episodes. The game was announced by LucasArts on May 25, 2007 at Celebration IV and was released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Nintendo DS on November 6, 2007 in North America. The compilation title was released for the PC on October 13, 2009 in the US. Its sequel, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, was released in March, 2011. The Mac OS X version of the game was released on November 12, 2010 by Feral Interactive., iOS version of the game was released on December 12, 2013, and the Android version was released on January 1, 2015. There is also a version available on the Amazon Appstore for kindle.
The aim of the game is to successfully make it through the entire story and collect the Gold Bricks while progressing through the game. In the Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions there are 160 to collect; 120 of these are for the main levels. There are three for each of the levels. One is for completing the level in story mode, the second is for collecting a set amount of studs/coins to achieve a "True Jedi" status and the third is by collecting the 10 LEGO canisters, called "minikits," which are hidden around the level. There are 20 gold bricks for completing the Bounty Hunter missions which involve finding key members of the Republic and Rebellion for Jabba the Hutt's capture and subsequent ransom. There are 6 gold bricks for completing the bonus missions and 14 to buy at the Cantina. There are 36 story levels, 20 bounty hunter missions, and six bonus levels (two Lego Cities, two story levels (Anakin's Flight and A New Hope, the latter of which was a special unlockable level in the first Lego Star Wars), and the original Mos Espa Pod Race and Gunship Cavalry levels).
Most of the story levels are the same as those found in the original games. A level involving the pursuit of bounty hunter Zam Wesell has been added (this was a deleted level from Lego Star Wars: The Video Game), while another level that was cut from the first game (Anakin's starship battle from Episode I) is included as a bonus level. This level utilizes vehicle free-roam from the second game. The game takes place from "the Trade Federation's negotiations" above Naboo in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace to the space battle above Endor in Return of the Jedi.
This game incorporates two previously deleted levels from Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, 'Anakin's Flight' and 'Bounty Hunter Pursuit'. 'Anakin's Flight', originally a rail-shooter level, was given the free-roam style used in almost all vehicle levels in the game, and was made a bonus level unlockable by obtaining enough Gold Bricks. The level is based on the space battle against the Droid Control Ship in The Phantom Menace. Bounty Hunter Pursuit, on the other hand, was also made a free-roam level and integrated into Episode II (in the original game, no level replaced Bounty Hunter Pursuit, giving it five levels as opposed to the standard six). The level is based on Obi-Wan's and Anakin's chase after Zam Wessel.
The game received generally positive reviews. On aggregate review website Metacritic, the game attained overall scores of 80 out of 100 on all platforms.
In April 2009, the game was the fourth-highest selling on the Wii, and ninth for the DS. By May 2, 2009, the game's worldwide sales total exceeded 3.4 million. Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2009 ranked The Complete Saga as the 23rd greatest video game of all time. The game was nominated for Best Video Game at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards.
