Elmofongo: Is he the one taht decided to only make Star Wars games and nothing else (LucasArts back than made all kinds of games not just Star Wars)
That's the guy.
Responsible for killing Grim Fandango 2, Monkey Island 5, Full Throttle 2 and Sam & Max: Freelance Police.
Lucas' daughter is a contestant on Robot Combat League this season. That adds NOTHING to the thread but I thought it would be fun to know. :D
As far as I'm concerned, LucasArts died slowly over a long period years ago, with KoTOR2 being the final nail in the coffin. That the empty shell is now gone doesn't make much of a difference to me. They obviously weren't going to do anything interesting with any of their IPs ever again, and now that Disney has taken over, I'm sure they'll continue the glorious tradition of doing nothing interesting with those IPs.

Ah, I wasn't aware that one man was responsible for that horrible decision.

If only Grim Fandango was ported to the PS1, than adventure games would last :P

Look on the bright side, at least Grim Fandango 1 did not ended in a cliffhanger, its story ended the way it ended.

I'd care if LucasArts still made adventure games but they gave those up a long time ago in lieu of MOAR STAR WARS!!!

Bye LucasArts, you were dead to me a long time ago.
I want KOTOR I & II on GOG right now!
This is the best time to get them for GOG!

Support them:

I already have KOTOR 2. What I wany is a KOTOR 2 that actually runs!
While I am not upset about Disney buying Lucasfilm and its properties (imagine if they got the makers of Tron: Uprising to do a Star Wars series-it would stomp all over the silly, cutesy Clone Wars nonsense out there now) and I feel they will do a good job with the movies (they really haven't changed Marvel since they acquired the company and properties-Avengers was insanely good, so I do have hope for Star Wars) this time they've blown at least one amazing opportunity.

Imagine if they did not fire Warren Spector (Mr. Deus Ex himself as well as one of the creators of Ultima VII) and kept Lucasarts open. A Warren Spector Star Wars game may have given Star Wars games the kick in the @$$ they've been needing. Sadly, however, Disney dropped the ball completely this time and destroyed the opportunity to create the next Star Wars classic, or even another Warren Spector original under LucasArts.

Disney often does do some amazingly shrewd business moves, but these two were definitely not in that category...
:(
So,,, No Maniac Mansion HD then? Or Maniac Mansion on GOG?
I bet there's nobody in this thread who hasn't done this a long time ago already. ^^

On a different note: you're just a Radon Labs fan, not one of its former members, eh?

I´m a "RestInPieces"-Fan, nothing more!
I´m also called CD LABS: Radon Projekt in other forums, so you can easly find out what my favovourite developers are ;)


BTW, I don´t believe that everybody in this thread already voted for those games:
There are many users who even do not KNOW about the wishlist:
Yes, it´s nearly impossible to avoid it, but I´ve already seen round ten of them here!

we've decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company's risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games

JMich: Does this mean they may consider licensing GOG to sell their older titles? I'll stick with that theory, and ignore any others.
Is sad to see this happening, even sadder for the ones who lost their jobs, people who would have been working on LucasArts for years.

But as JMich said, all is not lost, maybe we'll see some good old titles from LucasArts on GOG.
Sad news, but hopefully will open the door to licensing with GOG for the classics of the past
That's sad news, though someone is probably quite happy about that:

Everything is proceeding as I have forseen...

Well, most people who take part in the discussions already know their way around the GOG community including the wishlist. ;)
