Thank god - they made the weakest games.
You clearly have no idea how great some of the games they made were. you must be young.
X wing.. You will be missed
I'm siding with Jason.... I have never fallen in love with a single lucasarts game, sure some weren't bad but it wasn't like there were alternatives.
It's sad, especially since 1313 looked so good. But there's a great article on Kotaku about how our nostalgia is "worthless", in the most positive sense. As much as we love the old games the studio made, they haven't made anything really good recently. Force Unleashed had some decent sales, but wasn't anything special. Our nostalgia is 'worthless' in that it does not earn the studio any money. So it was all a matter of time.
LucasArts has been dead to me since they canceled the Sam & Max and Full Throttle sequels.
I've never been a huge fan either, however a friend of my worked at their office in Sacremento. So i'm sort of bummed out for him, dude moved to California last year from Texas to join their design team and now is unemployed. Sucks for all of them.
I'm going to agree here.
BOO to Disney
Star Wars Jedi Knight 2, The Knights of the Old Republic games, Republic Commando, Force Unleashed 1 and 2, and Lego Star Wars were all good games in recent history. All of which I enjoyed thouroughly!
RIP LucasArts... your contributions to the gaming world will be remembered.
Lucasarts could have been such a cash cow if they would have done it right. its a shame.
You know it was going to happen once Disney got the righhts....
The latest really good games that Lucas Arts has had a hand in are the Knights of The Old Republic titles. the first one won game of the year back in 2004 when the first SWKOTR won the game of the year. 2 was alright but it was a different producer, and didn't live up to the first one.
Thank heavens that new designers will be making SW games, they are far and beyond my favorite genre of video games.
a Toast, may i soon shock enemy sith to death with ironically evil force lightning.
i played force unleashed 1 and 2, they were really boring with poor in game story line, the entire thing was a bland hack and slash with stupid force displays that made no sense.
Im not sure how I feel about this one. I did like some of the games that were put out and it sucks the people that made those games are out of a job on a whim but then again maybe going to a bigger studio or wherever they go will give them the boost and marketing they need.
Only time will tell but hopefully its for the best.

Would have liked to have seen how 1313 turned out but oh well. It isn't a huge deal to me.
