If you specify your route like

Route::get('/profile/{param1}/{param2}', function($param1,$param2) {
	return "Params {$param1} {$param2}";
});

these URL is valid

www.domain.com/profile/abc/def

and these won't work

www.domain.com/profile/abc/

www.domain.com/profile/abc/def/ghi

You can even specify params as optional by appending ? like

Route::get('/profile/{param1?}/{param2?}', function($param1=null,$param2=null) {
	return "Params {$param1} {$param2}";
});

In this case this URL will be valid (too)

www.domain.com/profile

Yes, I agree, but I am currently using Route::controller instead of Route::get(), I have around 6 methods per controller and I don't want to have 500 lines of code inside my routes.php with

Route:;get("/profil/update Route::post("/profil/update Route::get("/profil/delete Route::post("/profil/delete

That's the reason why I was trying to find a solution with the Route::controller()

Laravel add automatically five optional parameters to your route like

profile/index/{one?}/{two?}/{three?}/{four?}/{five?}

You could define a before filter in your constructor and test for the existence of the parameter you don't want to have and then thrown an 404:

So if e.g. you don't want to have a third parameter you can try this:

public function __construct()
{
	$this->beforeFilter(function($route) {
		$param = $route->getParameter('three');
		if ( ! empty($param) )
		{
			App::abort(404);			
		}
	});
}

You also have the possibility to define this filter globally.

BTW: I was also the guy who was too lazy to write out all the route because I was used to the magic way of CodeIgniter and Kohana but this article form Phil Sturgeon made me think twice:
