Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a very, very big game filled with hundreds of characters, ships, planets and weapons from every Star Wars movie ever made. But throughout life star wars nerd, i’m very good at nitpicking things i like and after thinking about it for a while, i’ve put together a list of seven characters who should have been included as playable characters in this latest and greatest adventure from Star Wars.
It’s worth noting that for this list, I’ve (mostly) avoided complaining about missing characters from TV shows, comics, or other non-movie media. It’s very clear that TT Games focused almost exclusively on live action skywalker saga movies when creating his character roster. So while I’m sad we don’t have Cad Bane, Thrawn or Aphra, I understand why.
However, there are still characters that appeared in the movies, with speaking roles and even names, that didn’t make it into playable characters.
So, with all that out of the way, here’s my list:
Garindan (Imperial Spy)
This is probably the saddest omission on the list. Back to the old Lego Star Wars games, this snout alien spy was a boss you fought in episode IV campaign. Flashforward to 2022 and the release of Skywalker Saga and not only is he no longer a boss, he’s not even a playable character. It’s quite the downgrade. Sorry, Garindan.
Technically, Quinlan Vos barely appears in The Phantom Menance, appear in the background of a scene on Tattooine. In the movie, he has no name and no dialogue. However, in the years that followed, he was given a name, a backstory, and transformed into a Jedi who would eventually appear in numerous comics, books, and even the animated show Clone Wars. And he already has a Lego minifigure. What I’m saying is add this cool Jedi via a DLC pack, please.
I don’t want to throw too many Jedis on this list because Skywalker Saga already has a ton of them, so who needs one more. However, Agen Kolar should have made the cut as a playable Jedi in skywalker saga. The guy was there when the Jedi, led by Mace Windu, confronted Palpatine and tried to stop him. This is a great moment in Star Wars history. Yet it’s still in the toy box for this latest Lego game. Maybe because he died after 2 seconds of fighting?
Yes, the guy with the death sticks from episode II should be in this game. Come on! He has a speaking role, a bit of a character arc, and is in a memorable little scene. Of course, he never officially received a Lego minifig. But I don’t think that should completely exclude poor Sleazebaggno from the game. Especially if TT Games is doing well, including a (possible) murderous droid. Someone even petitioned for the guy to be included. He got less than 25 signaturesbut still… someone cares.
Sy Snootles and Max Rebo are in Skywalker Saga, but John Yowza is not it? For shame, TT Games… for shame. You may have finally included Yaddle, and I thank you, but do not break the Max Rebo group. I know we all hate”Jedi rocks”, but we can’t hold that against Yowza all these years later.
The Asogians were a species that was part of the Galactic Republic at the time of The Clone Wars. If they look familiar, it’s because they’re a direct reference to the ET movie and are designed to look like the main alien from it. Grebleips appears, technically, in a scene in the blink of an eye and you’ll miss him found in Episode I. And yes, his name is Spielberg spelled backwards. star wars is mute. Sorry. It doesn’t matter. Forget this one.

Okay, that was never going to happen, but considering how many random references to things like South Park, Better Call Saul, and Taken can be found in this game, I was shocked they didn’t included a fun nod to one of the best and most popular SNL skits from the past decade.
