Lego's marriage with Star Wars for years has set the average geek's heart aflutter. And now, they have something else to get excited about.

Warner Bros. on Thursday launched Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Apple's App Store. The game, which is designed for both iPhone and iPad, combines Legos with Star Wars to create a new way for players to interact with the famed franchise's environment.

Interestingly, the "Complete Saga" moniker doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. After downloading the free game, iOS users will find that they can play Episode I: The Phantom Menace for free. The complete saga, which includes episodes II through VI, are available as in-app purchases. The Complete Saga in-app purchase costs $14.99.

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga requires iOS 6 or later. The game is optimized for iPhone 5, according to Warner Bros., but works across the latest iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch.

Adobe Systems released Lightroom 5.3 on Thursday, extending its support to two Nikon full-frame SLRs, the enthusiast-oriented D610 and the retro Nikon Df, and one of the two first mobile phones that can produce raw photos, the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Nokia just released the Lumia 1520 phablet, making it the first phone that can produce raw images -- those that record the unprocessed sensor data before conversion into more convenient but less flexible formats like JPEG. For Adobe, though, it's the more mainstream Lumia 1020 that got the first Lightroom support, although its software won't be updated to handle raw photos until early 2014.

In other mobile-phone news, Lightroom 5.3 also can correct lens problems from Apple's iPhone 5s, along with a range of lenses from Sony, Nikon, and Canon. The iPhone 5S can't produce raw files, but Lightroom support means the software can counteract distortion and vignetting.
