|LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy|
LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is a video game released by LucasArts on September 12, 2006, based on the Star Wars-themed toy line by the LEGO Group. It is the sequel to the highly successful LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game, and since release a third game, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga has been released. The game is available on the Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, GameCube, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, and PC.
The Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance versions are in portable style, as opposed to the original's presence on only the Game Boy Advance. They also feature fewer playable characters.
The game was developed by Traveller's Tales, who was also responsible for the original LEGO Star Wars game. Publishing duties were taken up by LucasArts (replacing the original's Eidos Interactive). It features a total of 58 playable characters, with an extra 56 playable characters unlockable by having a saved game from LEGO Star Wars on the memory card or hard drive (making a total of 114 playable characters). The games non old save data characters must be bought in the cantina, or unlocked during gameplay. The game also includes several new features, including vehicles, character-specific abilities, and customizable characters.
Mos Eisley Cantina
The first place is the counter or bar, Wuher stands behind the counter. You can buy a variety of things from him including characters. You can also watch video clips that have already been viewed during gameplay.
Outside the cantina
From the cantina, by walking through various doors you can enter levels. This is just like in the first game where levels were accessed by entering doors in Dexter's Diner. The player is also able to customize characters, save them, and then use them in Free Play Mode, or go outside for street fights.
- There are ten minikit canisters in each level.
- There is one hidden Red Power Brick in each level. Each power brick unlocks a special feature available for purchase in the Cantina.
- Each episode has at least one vehicle-based level (Episode V has two).
- Each Story Mode level has at least two playable characters.
- Each level has certain character(s) available only in Freeplay in that level that are unlocked by purchasing the Extra Toggle Feature. For example, in Rescue The Princess and Jedi Destiny, Mouse Droids and Imperial Engineers are available, while in Through the Jundland Wastes and Mos Eisley Spaceport, multiple droids and some womp rats are playable.
- Each episode has three bonus levels.
- In Super Story Mode, you have to complete all six story mode missions in under an hour. However, the gold brick will be gained even if the player does not finish under an hour.
- Two levels where you have to collect 1,000,000 studs in under 5 minutes. (6 minutes for the Episode V vehicle level.) There is one for Characters and one for Vehicles. In the vehicle mode, you play with all of the vehicles whose minikits you've built, including ones from the first game.
- Each level has at least one Double Score Zone. Examples: Mos Eisley Spaceport has a landspeeder wash, a high-up place, and a movie theater.

Bounty Hunter Missions
Once all six of the bounty hunter characters have been unlocked and bought in the cantina, the bounty hunter room (a singular doorway found between Episodes IV and V, marked with Jabba's face) opens and inside is jabba the hutt`s office, allowing the player to access 10 special mini-areas. Each of these areas, consisting of part of one of the earlier chapters from the main episodes, has a Star Wars character hidden away somewhere. Using the bounty hunters, the player has to hunt down the hidden character within an allotted time to receive a gold brick and some LEGO studs.
The following characters are at the player's disposal:
Each mission requires the use of particular bounty hunters depending on the situation. For instance, IG-88 or 4-LOM may be needed to operate a protocol or astromech panel, following which Boba Fett may be needed to hover across a chasm.
The following 10 characters are hidden away in many levels:
|R2-D2||Tantive IV, as seen in Secret Plans||Bounty Hunter Only Area|
|Ben Kenobi||Sandcrawler, as seen in Through the Jundland Wastes||At the exit of Sandcrawler, There is a secret compartment behind a container on the right.|
|Chewbacca||Mos Eisley, as seen in Mos Eisley Spaceport||In the area where you see stormtroopers on dewback, behind the first compartment with brown door on the left.|
|Princess Leia||Death Star, as seen in Rescue the Princess||In detention cell, directly opposite her location in story mode.|
|Admiral Ackbar||Echo Base, as seen in Escape from Echo Base||In C-3PO room, immediate left from where you start (don't open the door ahead). Found in bacta tank.|
|Yoda||Ewok Village, as seen in The Battle of Endor||Turn left, build the turnstile and use Boba Fett to fly over to him.|
|C-3PO||Cloud City, as seen in Betrayal over Bespin||Bounty Hunter hang-out pad roof top in Cloud City. Access this area with the bounty hunter elevator.|
|Lando Calrissian||Cloud City, as seen in Betrayal over Bespin||The Millennium Falcon bridge extension control room. Use IG-88 or 4-LOM to walk through the gas and capture him.|
|Luke Skywalker||Mos Eisley, as seen in Mos Eisley Spaceport||Crashed ship, destroy the moisture vaporator and grapple up there.|
|Han Solo||Echo Base, as seen in Escape from Echo Base||Turn right at the E-web blaster in the hallway. In the room where you build the cart on tracks, he is hiding up on the right ledge.|
Once all 10 of the gold bricks have been received, the areas can be replayed with the aim of beating the time it took to last complete the level. Each time that a few seconds are shaved off the current record, you receive a number of studs in relation to this.
For a list of playable characters see LEGO Star Wars: The Original Trilogy Characters.
There are 58 playable characters with an extra 56 characters available from old memory save. This makes a total of 114 playable characters.
There are various situations in which only certain characters can be used. There are bounty hunter, protocol droid, stormtrooper and astromech droid entry control panels, which need the required type of character to be present if you wish to enter the room. There are also chasms which need Jetpack or hover abilities to cross and mini doors which require smaller characters to enter. Certain areas require characters with the Force or a high jump ability.
- B'omarr Monk

One of the new additions of LEGO Star Wars II is that you can create your own characters with various powers and customize them. For example, a character with a red lightsaber and Boba Fett's helmet can use the Force and open bounty hunter doors. This saves time from switching around trying to find a certain necessary character.And another example is the weapons section does no include Slingshots,Spears,Tusken Rifles,Axes,Blaster Carbines,Dual Pistols and they can't be unarmed.The Capes section does not Include Backpacks and Jetpacks.Using Darth Sidious' Head Cannot give them Force Lighting.Darth Vader's Helmet does not give them Imperial Access.

There are a total of 99 gold bricks hidden throughout LEGO Star Wars II.
- 4 from each chapter. You earn one gold brick after completing each of the following requirements:
- Story Mode – Completing the level
- Story Mode – True Jedi Status (fill up stud meter)
- Free Play Mode – True Jedi Status (fill up stud meter)
- Story Mode/Free Play Mode – Minikit Canisters (10 in each level)
- 9 from the Bonus Missions (Super Story ×3, Character Bonus ×3 and Minikit Bonus ×3)
- 10 from the Bounty Hunter Missions
- 8 bought from Wuher in the Mos Eisley Cantina
Unlockable features with gold bricks
The following is a list of special features you can unlock depending on the number of gold bricks you have:
- 60: When you have collected 60 gold bricks, you will be able to enter LEGO City. This is a playground level set in a LEGO City (based on the LEGO Town series) where the objective is to collect all one million studs in the level. Unfortunately, after completing the task, you are not rewarded with another gold brick.
- 99: When you have collected all 99 gold bricks in the game, you will unlock a stud fountain outside the cantina which spits out numerous silver, gold and blue studs every four seconds.
- Note: If you stay in the same spot, the LEGO studs will not fall where you are standing. This is avoidable by using a jetpack character (Boba Fett) or a ghost character (Anakin Skywalker, Ben Kenobi, or Yoda).
Extras are small features that can be turned on and off. Some function as cheats, like "Invincibility", while others are just novelties. Unlike the first LEGO Star Wars, players must earn the ability to buy extras by collecting red Power Bricks.
- Adaptive difficulty: Already available at the beginning of the game, turning this on means the game will get harder the better you are at playing it.
Available to buy straight away
- Use old save: Allows the use of unlocked characters from the first LEGO Star Wars game, assuming that a save-file of that game is available.
- Extra toggle: Normally unplayable characters are available to play in certain levels in Free Play, including a skeleton, a scout trooper, a womp rat and many droids that cannot be purchased from the cantina.
- Fertilizer: Causes animals to poop when the special button is pressed.
- Disguise: Gives characters a fake nose, black moustache and glasses. Adorns some vehicles as well.
- Daisy chains: Turns a character's grappling hook rope into a chain of flowers.
- Chewbacca carrying C-3PO: Chewbacca will carry a partially assembled C-3PO on his back.
- Tow Death Star: Turns the towable bombs in vehicle-based levels into tiny Death Stars.
Available to buy after finding the relevant Power Brick
- Super blasters: Blasters are twice as powerful as normal.
- Fast Force: Force-using characters can use the Force on LEGO objects at twice the speed.
- Super lightsabers: Lightsabers are all purple and twice as powerful as normal.
- Tractor beam: Vehicles automatically trap enemies in a tractor beam trailing behind them when this extra is switched on.
- Invincibility: Makes characters resistant to enemy attacks. If a player dies by falling off of a ledge or walking into poisonous gas, no studs are lost.
- Score x2 (or x4, x6, x8, x10): x2, x4, x6, x8, x10 stud count. Stud multipliers are cumulative, so if all multipliers are turned on the total effect is x3840. Note: If you have all of these on and you enter a double score zone, it becomes x7680.
- Self destruct: Gives droids the ability to self-destruct with the same effect of thermal detonators.
- Fast build: Characters can build LEGO objects at twice the speed.
- Regenerate hearts: Characters regenerate health automatically. This does not work in the same way as the Invincibility extra.
- Minikit detector: A white arrow will appear showing the location of any Minikit canisters in the area.
- Super zapper: Astromech, Jawa and Ugnaught zappers can stun anyone and kill droids (except some Jedi and people, because it counts as a mind trick).
- Bounty hunter rockets: Jango and Boba Fett can shoot rockets from their jetpacks, which have the same strength as thermal detonators. They can lock on to enemies but can also miss them if fired at a wrong angle.
- Super Ewok catapult: Ewoks launch mini proton torpedoes (instead of the usual rocks that they fire), which have the same strength as thermal detonators.
- Infinite torpedoes: Vehicles will auto-generate between three and five torpedoes in vehicle-based levels, depending on the vehicle in use.

Codes for the Nintendo DS

- Unlock all weapons in the character editor: BIGGUN--
- Earn 500,000 stud bonus: HGIGHF--

Extras available only through cheat codes
- Disguise 2: Gives characters a small red nose. This disguise also works on some vehicles.
- Disguise 3: Gives characters a fake nose, a white beard, and glasses. This disguise also works on some vehicles.
There are eight well known glitches:
- If the second player has money and the first player kills the second player in a double score zone, the money dropped will double when picked up by the first player (fortunately for him.)
- If you have a saved game file that has some extras on it and you turn them on and you go to another saved game file, the extras will still be turned on even if they are actually locked.
- If you exit any vehicle with a human, eject and toggle to a droid character and then self-destruct (assuming that extra has been purchased), the droid will be driving that vehicle, and with droidekas, if you eject, the droideka will move without lowering its shield; but the effect is lost by firing.
- In the "Betrayal over Bespin" level, there is a minikit at the top of the Millennium Falcon that does not disappear in playthroughs after it is obtained. If picked up a second time, the Millennium Falcon's ramp does not lower after all Stormtroopers are killed, making the level impossible to complete without resetting. However, if you play as one of the heroes you originally play as in Story Mode, the ramp will lower as it thinks you are in Story Mode.
- In the "Battle of Endor" level, (assuming that "Old save" has been bought) while selecting characters in free play, it will select "Clone" by automatic, which it does not do in any other levels.
- If you go to the extra room in Jedi Destiny you can fall through the floor.
- In the "Through the Jundland Wastes" level, at the very and outside Ben's house is a "dewback". If you jump on the dewback and run it into the quicksand, you will return playing as the dewback. The effect is lost after toggling to another character, in which case the dewback is then unavailable. this can also happen in the "Jabba's Palace" level while riding on a "B'omarr walker" and falling in a pit.
- If you use the cheat above and switch to another character and jump it will duplicate your character.
Game Boy Advance
For the Game Boy Advance, the game is altered for portability reasons (i.e. graphics, fewer characters etc). The Game Boy version has 36 playable characters, fewer than the console versions, although it does feature characters not available in console versions such as a baby Rancor and R2-Q5. Also, Darth Vader is unlocked at an earlier time, and the Scout Trooper and MSE-6 are now playable without extra toggle. The generic Ewok is gone and Wicket's slingshot is replaced with a spear. The player can not mix and match their own character. There are not any power bricks hidden in the levels, and there are no gold bricks to collect.

There are five levels in Episodes 4 and 5 and six levels in Episode 6. A character in each level is unlocked when all ten minikits are collected. The Dagobah level is not in the Game Boy version. Mos Eisley Spaceport and Through the Jundland Wastes are formed as one level. The 128-bit version's "Jedi Destiny" and "Into The Death Star" are reversed.

The PlayStation Portable version of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy contains PlayStation Portable exclusive material including the final levels from Episodes I, II and III of the first LEGO Star Wars game and a challenge mode for each level in LSW II, where the player goes through each level to find all 10 blue minikits in a time limit. If completed, the player will achieve a character from the original Lego Star Wars game.
The cantina's area is made a ghost town featuring only the player and one other character, to make sure the game runs lag-free. The bounty hunter missions are excluded from the game in place of the prequel episodes' levels. Gold bricks cannot be bought from the cantina, and there are much longer loading times.
Otherwise, the PlayStation Portable version contains the same features and gameplay as the console versions, with one reviewer describing it as "having all of the substance, cut-scenes and style of the Xbox 360 version."
For the Nintendo DS version, the game is altered for portability reasons (i.e., graphics, fewer characters, etc.). The DS version has 50 characters, though they don't exactly match the ones from the console games. In addition to cooperative multiplayer, the DS version allows up to four people to battle wirelessly, where they can choose to fight over Han Solo (Carbonite) in Jabba's Palace or battle in a Tatooine-themed arena. Character swapping is performed by touching icons on the touch screen.
Though generally praised for its gameplay, the original release of the DS version was criticized for its bugs and graphical glitches. Many internet sites accused it of being rushed to the shelves with the other versions of the game and the reissued Star Wars DVD films.
One website was supposedly contacted by anonymous employees of the developer which claimed that the US, European, and Japanese versions were different from each other regarding the bugs, and that a new fixed version would be shipped to shelves after the first print run had sold out.
Errors and inconsistencies
There are number of errors and inconsistencies with Star Wars canon that exist in LEGO Star Wars II due to its humorous outlook on the Star Wars films. For a full list see LEGO Star Wars: The Original Trilogy Inconsistencies
The game was mostly favorably received with fans and critics, who praised the gameplay, which focused mainly on fun and exploring. Many considered it superior to the original, mainly due to the improved gameplay, the many new features, such as the character creating aspect and freeform vehicle sections, and other aspects. However, some gamers considered it childish, too simplistic, and even with the adaptable difficulty, very easy.
On December 13, 2006 the game received an award for "best video game based on a TV show or movie" at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.
On December 22, 2006, StarWars.com declared LEGO Star Wars II as Number 1 in Star Wars: The Best of 2006.
