Review: The only thing new about Angry Birds Star Wars is the lightsaber

I wondered about that, too. Why did they feel they had to stick to the "angry birds" metaphor when the StarWars franchise provides its own plot and motivations? Surely they licensed the stuff from Lucas (now Disney), so why bother with birds and pigs? Why not have created totally new creatures, and characters we know from SW, but using the the technology behind AB? Seems like they could have had a great product. Seems they were not confident enough in their gaming engine, and had to borrow some birds n pigs. As if StarWars isn't a rich-enough universe!

I'm no Rovio defender by any means (Bad Piggies was the first game I purchased from them, and I thoroughly enjoyed it), but a careless, clueless statement like that leads me to take your review with a large dose of salt.

The rest of the Angry Birds series, I love.
Also, we are talking about tablet games, as opposed to PC/console games. Those games are growing just as stale. How many times do we need to kill Zombies. Halo 64?
And we are only talking about a $1.00 investment with Angy Birds Star Wars.
As compared to how much for major games????
