I've been slowly working my way through LEGO Star Wars II and spent a chunk of yesterday battling through the Empire Strikes Back chapters when I found that a new character had been added to my list of freestyle choices: Han Solo, Frozen in Carbonite. He is, as you'd imagine, a big slab. He jumps around. He bends a little (exactly how carbonite bends, I'm not sure). He is, in a word, useless, yet the freestyle mode forces you to take him rather than something more useful like, say, a Jedi.
