I feel like this should really have been the one with Unexpected Journey. More appropriate, no?

Mmm, it still fits, I guess my jab was more at the Unexpected Journey Bilbo, since, while it was a unique one different from all the others, it didn't really bring a specific scene to mind like this one does.

I'm still a little perplexed as to why the game will only cover the first two movies. Was there that desperate a demand that they couldn't delay it a little for the third? I wonder if they'll pull a Lego Indy 2 and create additional levels for the first two films as well as all levels for the 3rd movie, or just do one game solely about "There and Back Again."

Bit silly that not only does the book have a higher book:film ratio than LOTR but more Lego games too :P

The fact that it doesn't include all three movies (assuming that is the case. Does it actually state that somewhere?) is utterly baffling to me. Wait one more year, for cryin' out loud. The Hobbit is already being stretched out unmercifully in the films, why stretch it even further for the game? I think I may just skip this, at least until they reveal how they will be handling the third movie in game form.

EDIT: Upon further research, I found that the plan is to add the third film to the game as DLC. So I'll probably just wait until the game is complete and get it all at once.

There actually was an online co-op in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Why they left it out from later games is beyond me.
