Yes. Seems like Lego Star Wars II got a lot of awards from various organizations but unfortunately LucasArts didn't come away with any wins from the 10th Annual AIAS Awards (http://www.interactive.org/content/pdf/AIAS_10th_IAAs_WINNNERS.pdf) this year. I thought Lego Star Wars II was a shoe-in for "Family Game of the Year" but Guitar Hero 2 snagged that one.
