|Lego Star Wars II: Star Wars redux|

A lot of console reviews are written from pre-release versions of a game. We get an early copy of something before the retail build is available, and we have to play it on a special console system that's kind of like a devkit.
So anytime you look up 'tomchick' on Xbox Live, please make a mental note that my gamerscore should probably be about a thousand points higher than it really is. I've achieved achievements that will be never be recognized. Which, when it comes right down to it, is a central fact of the human condition, isn't it?
Not that I care. Really. I don't. Not that much at any rate. I'm just sayin'. I'm not bitter about having playing through the entirety of Perfect Dark with nothing to show for it. It's not like I resent Microsoft for not letting me use the cars I earned fair and square in Forza. Those Chromehound parts I would have had? Whatever.
But by god, I will gladly replay Lego Star Wars II for the points. Gladly. It's lite and frivolous and inconsequential in a way that most games without that "casual" disclaimer don't have the cajones to be. You can read my review here.
