I wonder what Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien, would think of the Lego video game adaptation of his classic books.

Would he accept them for the fun, lighthearted spoofs they are meant to be? Or would he respond more like an Alan Moore, and write it off entirely? I would like to think he would fall in the former camp rather than the latter.

Lego Lord of the Rings is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita and Nintendo Wii in October.
