The Episode I segment of this game takes you through the first part of the ?Star Wars? prequel trilogy. Here, you take control of Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon-Jin, Padme/Amadala, Anakin, and many more characters from the movie as you play through the plot in a somewhat slapstick, yet still accurate rendition of the film.
This episode is broken up into six chapters: Negotiations, Invasion of Naboo, Escape from Theed, Mos Espa Pod Race, Retake Theed, and Darth Maul. This first part of Lego Star Wars reminded me a lot of the Star Wars: Episode I game that came out with the movie, except I found myself enjoying this game much more -- maybe it?s just the cartoony feel of it all.
