Lego Star Wars: The Video Game is a Lego-themed, action-adventure video game based on the Lego Star Wars line of toys, and the first installment in the Lego video game franchise developed by Traveller’s Tales, which would develop all future Lego titles from that point on. It was first released on 29 March 2005, and is a video game adaptation of the Star Wars prequel trilogy: The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005), with a bonus segment from A New Hope (1977).
It is the only TT Games’ Lego title to be rated E by the ESRB for consoles (the handheld version of TT’s Lego video games may have an E rating) while other Lego video games 2005-onward are E-10.
It was developed by Traveller’s Tales for the Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation 2 video game consoles, and Microsoft Windowspersonal computers, with Griptonite Games developing the Nintendo Game Boy Advance version. These initial versions were published in April 2005. A Mac version, developed by Aspyr, was released in August 2005. A Nintendo GameCube version of the game was released on 26 October 2005.
