Based on a cartoon series that’s based on a movie franchise that’s spun off from another movie franchise, Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes has even more levels of dilution than it does colons, and the quality has followed an identical pattern. While the licence is preserved effectively enough to please Lucas diehards, and the early stages are mildly diverting, a clunky control system and repetitive, uninventive level design will leave you pining for what might have been. Luckily, there’s always the Lego alternative to fall back on.
