Does it stop you from being able to get 3 stars on a level?

Nope. It doesn't affect stars. Only playing a level normally let's you get three stars. The Mighty Eagle requires your to get 100% completion instead, which is destroying everything on the screen with it. You can also use it to skip over a level if you get stuck since it's kind of of hard not to win when you launch a 'bomb' that takes out half the screen.

Is it worth buying?

It is worth buying - not only does it help you get past hard levels, but it basically doubles game play for each level by giving you a destruction level where you need to aim the eagle. 100% nets you a feather for that level. Some of them are really hard to figure out.

Generally it's not fun to play a game after the game lost challenging. Personally I think the Mighty Eagle is not a necessity to buy as it eliminates the difficulty.
