Givin' It Away

So the demo for Lego Star Wars is out there. Unfortunately I can't run on any system I have access to. Something to do with pixels and vertices, apparently.

What I can do is unpack the thing, though. And then sift through the .TXT and .WAV files for anything interesting. In the wavs, not so much, but in the text there's all sorts of goodies...

Including what seems to be just about all of the plot, minus the banal dialogue, of Part III. For, a hopefully not too spoilery, example:
General Grievous
465 "Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker have saved Chancellor Palpatine. But his captor, General Grievous, has escaped."
466 "The Jedi Council assigns Obi-Wan Kenobi the task of hunting down Grievous, and the Jedi Knight tracks him to the sinkhole world of Utapau..."

As well as the slight game spoiler of:
"Congratulations! You've collected all 10 LEGO canisters. Your secret game code is A725X4. Use this in the full game for a special bonus."

And the fact that the bonus level on the full version looks like it takes place in the original film:
485 "It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire."
486 "Princess Leia Organa now has the blueprints for the Empire's new weapon, the Death Star. But her ship is intercepted and boarded by Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers..."

I dunno, still looks pretty cool to me...
