The Empire strikes back in this sequel to the endearing Star Wars game made all of LEGOs.

From Darth Vader's pursuit of Princess Leia aboard her blockade runner to a showdown on the reconstructed Death Star, the game includes even more of the family-friendly LEGO action.

The gameplay hasn't changed dramatically, but better source material makes Lego Star Wars II a better game than its predecessor.
