LEGO Star Wars celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and some of my next few Collecting the Galaxy blog posts will be devoted to looking back at the history of the mashup franchise. In the first of these LEGO Star Wars-inspired blogs we look at the period between 1999 and 2005, which takes in the releases of the prequels and the first original trilogy sets, too.

I love Star Wars video games.
Growing up, I played all the Super Nintendo games and a laundry list of others. I think my favorites are Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Dark Forces, and Star Wars Galaxies…which I played for three months straight, earning galaxy currency as an interior decorator (best job I’ve ever had). I loved playing the games because you were immediately able to enter the Star Wars universe. Plus, the John Williams soundtrack accompanied almost every game, so everything felt extra-epic.
It feels very appropriate that many fans are similarly inspired by video game styles for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut. Check out some of our favorite gamer mashups of Empire scenes submitted by Uncut contributors from around the world.
