Lego SW II DS is broken
Although people will put up with slightly buggy games, the unforgivable crime is what LucasArts and Amaze seem to have done with Lego Star Wars II on the DS: leave the game unfinished. Sources for Kotaku say that LucasArts was insistent the game be pushed out the door, this despite known problems with the wireless co-op mode and gameplay sections like Endor. The publisher wanted the game to coincide with the release of "original-original" Star Wars trilogy on DVD. A second production run should clean up a number of bugs, but the game will remain unpolished.
