The game based on Revenge of the Sith hits every platform, including Nintendo's new handheld, the Nintendo DS. Galaxies receives two expansions, the Trials of Obi-Wan and Rage of the Wookies (PC), based on elements of the new film. Republic Commando (Xbox, PC) is the franchise's first squad-based shooter and follows a group of elite clone troopers during the Clone Wars. Battlefront II (PS2, Xbox, PSP, PC) expands upon the large-scale infantry battles by adding dogfights in space. The most significant game this year is Lego Star Wars, the cute co-op platformer-puzzler that comes out of nowhere to charm kids and adults with its sometimes silly gameplay.
