LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game is a video game based on the LEGO Star Wars toy line. Released April 5, 2005, it covers the prequel trilogy and subsequently started a while line of LEGO-themed games. Before release, there were several levels that didn’t make the final product.
The cut levels were:
- Anakin’s Flight (set during The Phantom Menace, where the player must pilot a Naboo Starfighter as Anakin and destroy the Trade Federation Command Ship)
- Bounty Hunter Pursuit and Asteroid Dogfight (set during Attack of the Clones, the player controls Anakin and Obi-Wan as they pilot their speeders and they chase down Zam Wessel, then Obi-Wan in his starfighter as he escapes Jango Fett in the asteroids of Geonosis)
- Boga Chase and Palpatine Duel (set during Revenge of the Sith, the player must control Obi-Wan as he rides on a Boga to catch General Grievous as he attempts to escape on his wheel bike, then control Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, Saesee Tiin and Agen Kolar as they arrest the chancellor)
Two of these levels, 'Anakin's Flight' and 'Bounty Hunter Pursuit', were respectively reused for the 2007 release of LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga as a bonus level and a main level. The remnants of the cut levels, including the other three, can be found with a thorough search of the install directory for the PC version of the game. There were also a couple of scenes from Anakin’s Flight that were included in ads and screenshots as well as a trailer for the game.
