LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Announced

Please let this be a horribly timed April Fool's Day joke, because they really are milking the LEGO game franchise. Quick recap before my head asplodes:

  1. LEGO Star Wars (2005)
  2. LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (2006)
  3. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (2007)
  4. LEGO Batman (2008)
  5. LEGO Indiana Jones (2008)
  6. LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues (2009)
  7. LEGO Rock Band (2009)
  8. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (2010)

I originally typed that list up by memory (and sorted by franchise source), then went to Wikipedia for release years; my list was in chronological order before I knew it. Is that a bad thing?

...

Yes.

That makes 8, yes, eight LEGO games in...5 years. How in bloody fuck can you crank out that many games based off of...5 intellectual properties that fast?
