tinyE: Shit! Now what am I going to do with this pod racer I build in my garage!?
Damn. If only you had built an X-Wing or A-Wing. I would buy that from you in a heartbeat. But a pod racer? Who would want a vehicle that blows it's exhaust directly into your face all the time?

Ever heard of goggles!?
Jeeze, do I have to think of everything!?

Besides, you need space for the fighters. The pod racer you can take pretty much anywhere.

Yes. But both space fighters are FTL capable and I always wanted to visit other stars. And when I am done I could trade the A-Wing for a working light saber! (It's an old deal from school days that is still standing.)

I'm warning you, I know the entire SW ship catalogue and I could talk about this all day. :P Funny how space fight sims keep working to improve themselves yet they never even get close to the original X-WIng and Tie-Fighter. I still play those games constantly after all these years and I never get tired of them. Even the stupid speed runs are still fun.

gibbeynator: Someone get Night Dive on the phone, we've got a job for them.
Yep. The Wing Commander games were already awesome. But Tie Fighter stands lofty above even them, as the pinnacle of all space fighting games ever.

RaggieRags: Man. I feel like a friend just died.

Sure, a friend I fell out of touch years ago because he became kind of a douchebag and we had nothing in common anymore, but we had our time.

The last LucasArts game turned out to be Kinect Star Wars. That's just so... tragic.
That describes how I feel perfectly.
Did LA make any good PC-games in the last years? No? Then who cares?

jungletoad: That describes how I feel perfectly.
...and not only you. Didn't expect this after Disney's acquisition of 4 billion dollars.
There's only one thing left to say:
Nooooooooooooooo/
the chances of me getting to play Grim Fandango just went high a bit
It just occured to me, they are making more SW movies as we speak and I seriously doubt they are going to pass up putting out games for those. Even if the games are complete and utter shit they are still a cash cow. We may just be seeing an end to the term "Lucas Arts Games" and nothing else.
This feels so wrong. It's like hearing about the death of someone you used to be close to. Sure, you hadn't talked for years, but dammit. It still sucks.

Edit: and now I see someone else said the exact same thing earlier in this thread. Guess I'm not the only one then.

Come on Disney you know you love money, license the rights to all of the LucasArts back catalog to GOG. Then you can go off and sell the rights to make Star Wars Kinect 2013, 2014, Star Wars iOS, ect.
