I knew I was having a good time with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga when I started the Prequel Trilogy and saw Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan’s ship stopping at a floating passage gate in space. After a quick video conference with the Trade Federation – who hastily tried to hide their evil plans, dubbed “evil plans” – Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan breeze through the gate, accidentally launching an unlucky battle robot, extinguishing it in space.

The Skywalker Saga drives its magic, with practically every scene featuring some visual gag or punch at the expense of the movie series. Kylo Ren pumps iron and bends as Rey calls him in this infamous scene from The Last Jedi. Ben Kenobi makes some popcorn before seeing Leah’s letter to him in A New Hope. At the beginning of Revenge of the SithAnd Lego Count Dooku Makes Clay Plastic pop Noise as Anakin scissors his head.

This awful sense of humor reminds me of the classic Star Wars parody Spaceballs in the best way, and it really focuses the experience. LEGO Star Wars She’s been working her own weird magic since 2005, and the series’ intense jokes often manage to raise the bar for what could just be a soulless mix between two brands. The Skywalker Saga strives to be the ultimate entry, covering all aspects of the previous games in the series, as well as including The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker in Lego form for the first time. The result is a collection of different play styles all given just enough depth to make it work, held together by a series of humor and charm.
