Op Ed

Wired.com - Disney Buyout Could Be Death Blow for Lucas Videogames.
Star Wars 1313 may determine its own fate. Sometime in a short while from now, the following will almost certainly happen: Like Darth Vader arriving on the Death Star, Disney executives will visit LucasArts and get a full rundown of the studio’s activities. Its sharpest gaming guys will pick over 1313 and get a sense of whether it’s a project worth proceeding with, or another boondoggle.

If 1313 looks like something really special, perhaps Bob Iger will bend on his “licensing rather than publishing” strategy and it will come to fruition as planned.

If not, LucasArts may not be long for this world.

It's time for a new 'Wars in the Stars' IP. The old one is dead.

All we need, and really think about this, are memorable sound effects to go with the yet-to-be created units.

'Star Wars' as we knew it boils down to sound effects and music. The rest is derivative dreck and what wasn't, was fan made.

Keep your Light Sabres and Millenium Falcon and MitiChlorine. Instead give us Quantum Rapiers, the Epoch Hawk and Space Sorcery, all scored to Holst, Mahler and Beethoven...
