It's sort of depressing to say, but the best bits of Angry Birds Star Wars II come courtesy of the bird-ifed lolloping Gungan dolt Jar Jar Binks.
He's one of the few characters with which Rovio has done something different in this sequel, you see. I mean, you can use his grotesquely long tongue to swing around lumps of scenery.
And so when you see Jar Jar on your rack of birds, your heart lifts a little. Here's someone new and interesting. And when he's not there, you feel a little tug of sadness, because it probably means the level's going to be a bit bland.
Maybe 'bland' isn't the right word. 'Safe' fits better. With Angry Birds Star Wars II, Rovio is playing it safe.
It's more of the same. For some, that's going to be enough. But if you're looking for innovation in Angry Birds Star Wars II, you're going to be a little disappointed
