LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows us another side of one of the movie’s pivotal moments in the new Siege of Takodana DLC. Join Kylo Ren and his Stormtrooper pals as they blow up a perfectly good sci-fi theme restaurant.

While there’s a much better mission involving Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma included in the core game, the Siege of Takodana DLC marks the first time we get to play through bits of the actual movie as the evil empire.

We fight in the skies.

We get a little moving turret action as we blow the hell out of Googly Eyes’ cantina (not its real name).

And then we get a little straight-up LEGO action with Kylo, a Stormtrooper Commander and that guy with the riot stick thing.

The best bit is Kylo Ren channeling Star Trek‘s Counselor Troi, sensing things that are either blatantly obvious or had just been pointed out by someone else. Other than that and a few trademark LEGO sight gags, the Siege of Takodana is pretty standard fare that will add another 15-30 minutes on to your LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens play time. It’s available now, free for season pass holders, and $4.55 for everybody else.
