Angry Birds Star Wars

I am pretty sure I am a marketer's dream.  Slap the right name on something and all of a sudden you have my attention.  Terrible right?  Anyway, the most recent example of this is Angry Birds Star Wars, my current iPhone game of choice.

I'd never really played Angry Birds before although I knew the basic concept from another game I love, Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies vs Pandas.  The minute I started playing Angry Birds Star Wars, I was hooked.  You unlock various characters based on the Star Wars stories starting with normal Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan.

The game's story-line follows the movie story-line meaning you start with normal Luke and Obi-Wan in Tattooine.

You then move on to the Death Star where you unlock Chewy and Han followed by Hoth where you can unlock Princess Leia.

The levels get increasingly harder and you need to put more thought and strategy into each one.  Currently I am trying to get all the stars in all the levels in Tattooine, the Death Star and Hoth so that I can unlock the full Path of the Jedi stage.  Right now I can only play one level:

As you earn more stars, you unlock different levels in the Bonus stage.  Here you get to use R2-D2 and C-3PO although to be honest, I haven't quite figured out their unique powers.

As much as I love this game it also frustrate me because try as I might, I just can't get all the stars on some of the levels.  One the plus side, at least it keeps me playing.  Have you guys played Angry Birds Star Wars?  What did you think?

P.S. I've also just started playing Bad Piggies.  It's giving Angry Birds Star Wars a serious run for its money!
