    The only real surprise here is that it didn't happen sooner. Heads were going to roll at some point after the Disney buyout. I've been with companies that were bought by other companies, and the other shoe always drops eventually no matter what they say up front about keeping existing employees.

    If Disney treats Star Wars the same as they treated the Marvel comics line in terms of movies, it might be a good thing. As long as they reign in Mr. Lens Flare.

    Actually, I think still my favorite LucasArts games are Loom and Secret of Monkey Island, not Star Wars games.

    I don't know, X-Wing for the PC was pretty stellar and the king of Space Sims at the time. Somewhat revolutionary for the genre. I've always found it funny that when X-Wing came out, me and my buddy were like 'Wouldn't it be cool if you could play with or against other people online with this format'.. then a few years later, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter comes out. :lol:
