Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to seek Jedi Master Yoda's counsel when times get tough? What if no matter what you thought, Yoda would agree with you? Now, you can have it all, just by purchasing the new retail version of Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures
. That's right, they've packaged a Yoda bobblehead in with the game. The game itself also offers a new playable race. I reviewed the game
a few weeks ago, and while it's not perfect, it is fun, and it feels like Star Wars, which is really what you're looking for in a game like this.
