Ha! No kidding. I actually had far less than I was hearing about on console versions (I was playing on my PC), but the one main one I DID have made me start over from scratch if I wanted to complete the game 100%.

Dragon room? That was the one that got me on the PS3. Most of the others were problems on the Wii only I believe...

No, I never had any problem with the Dragon Room. I had a problem where, upon opening the door to the Slytherin common room in Hogwarts (not in a level, but in the castle itself), the door would VISUALLY open, but physically it would still be closed (so it was impossible for me to go through the open door). This remained no matter how many times I left and came back, making the game uncompletable. I had to start from scratch and HOPE the glitch wouldn't reappear the NEXT time I got to that point. (Which was quite a while- you have to go through quite a bit of the game before you have Polyjuice Potion AND a Slytherin character to change into.)

Well, the word from the guys at TT customer service who I contacted said the Dragon Room glitch only (and always) happened if you broke into it after learning Reducto (4th year :'( ), but not finishing the rest of the story (e.g., as soon as you can start exploring the castle with all spells and enough abilities to actually find its secrets). Second time through, I finished the whole story first like a good boy and had no trouble. Oh well, now I back up my game files about every other day, thank god lego doesn't make their game saves protected and uncopyable like some of the higher end games do.

As for years 5-7, I'll admit I was curious what other spells and stuff they'd pull out, especially since we already have their trump card (destroying metal objects). Unless they make us relearn that, which would really suck (but if you've played Crash Bandicoot, especially on handheld, you know what I mean). I saw Aguamenti and another spell when Harry traced the shape, couldn't make out what Hermione was doing with what looked like the firey spots on the ground, and thought the bag feature was cool. If any of the stuff is further explained by watching with sound, feel free to make fun of me for it XD
