Ya the camera is horrid. The controls are at least remappable though.
I agree. I just finished playin Lego Star Wars, and there's this part in Revenge of the Sith where you have to use force powers to activate ledges and jump onto them before they retract again, and using your force powers again to activate more ledges in order to jump onto platforms. The problem is that the camera angle makes this very difficult to do, as most of the time, you're directly under the platform that you're supposed to jump onto, and the perspective makes it hard to see that. What makes this worse is that you actually have to do this in order to proceed to the next part. And this is for kids? Some of the level design leaves a lot to be desired.
