THE POWER OF FLIGHT!
You've been able to fly before in the LSW games, but it was typically a top-down hovery affair. Not this time. In levels like the one where you attack General Grievous' ship Malevolence, your ship is fully navigable, even able to execute barrel rolls to avoid fire. You can even land mid-level to fight enemies, or even run around and collect studs in areas your ship can't reach. Dogfighting's always been a part of the Star Wars universe, so it's a treat to be able to live that out, LEGO-style.
