Summary: DRM strikes again! This game was originally designed to be used with Micosoft's Games For Windows Live service which was so horribly unsuccessful that they are shutting it down. In fact, the servers providing DRM for this game already appear to be down because I have not been able to connect to them rendering my purchase worthless. THIS is why people pirate- what's the point in buying something if you can't use it in perpetuity? DRM is theft.
Summary: Why did LucasArts make the people so small? When you are trying to jump to some places, the angles are misguided and you jump to death. The concept was great but I've seen better graphics on WII games. Lucas just uses the star wars universe to rip people off!
Summary: Unless you plan on playing this game on a 52" or larger monitor, don't buy it. I had a difficult time viewing any details of the tiny characters and the environment they were interacting with on my 42". Fun game, just very hard to see.
Summary: I also bought this game on impulse. (The cover did look good) I played Lego Star Wars obsessively to 100% completion. Despite the Force Unleashed's flaws, I still enjoyed it as a whole. That said, I can make no excuses for this game. I'm sure it sold plenty of copies to unsuspecting parents this season I'm also sure cheap, used copies should be plentiful soon. I still wouldn't pay $5 for this mess of a game.
Summary: I thought this game looked fun, from some online research, and went out and bought it this afternoon. I don't really like multiplayer-focused games, but this looked to have enough single-player content to me fun. I just installed it, to find out it is not a typical 3rd-person perspective game. The camera angle is 3rd-person, but the path is fixed like a side-scroller. So, you cannot change the camera perspective or your character's direction with the mouse.
Summary: Graphics - Decent at best Sound - Just...plain...awful: The "cutscenes" had an announcer that sounded like it was a baseball game. Gameplay - Impossible and annoying, you run around jumping only to fall continuously due to bad control mechanics. It is way too easy to fall off, and way too easy to misjudge a jump. Granted you don't die, but it is still tedious to wait for the respawn to jump once more over a gap and miss it at some silly proportion.
Summary: I bought this game and was thankful that Lucasarts finally put out a game for the PC. Now I wish I had not bought the game at all. It seems that the game is made for the gaming console and was not ported well to the PC. The controls are difficult at best to use when moving characters around on the screen. I played this game for about 10 minutes before I decided that I had made a bad purchase. I would not recommend the PC version of this game to anyone.
An utter disappointment. Seek entertainment elsewhere.

Summary: I just bought this game on impulse rather than waiting to see reviews because I recently bought and enjoyed another game set in the Star War universe, The Force Unleashed. The characters are simply too small on the PSP for the sort of fine control the game seems to require. SW:TFU had its control and camera issues but they were not nearly as bad as in this "game".
