    I'm actually good with it. I'd rather EA be in charge of the games than Disney. Say what you will about them, they have some of the top people in the business.

    So long as they actually stay true to their policy of quality over quantity, these games should be good. I'm still a bit wary because it's Egotistical Antagonists/Extortion Artists.

    I'm not a big Star Wars fan, but I have played a couple of their games from back in the N64 era, most notably Shadows of the Empire (holds some of my fondest memories growing up) and Star Wars Episode I: Racer. We have Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, but I never really played it, I mostly just watched Dad play it. I find the Star Wars LEGO games enjoyable, honestly, despite its problems. So it's a shame LucasArts is gone, but perhaps it's for the best if they weren't able to get back proper revenue from their later games.

    Perhaps we should be skeptical given EA's reputation with their own games. Unless they were handed the information of 1313, we shouldn't be seeing any Star Wars games from them for a couple of years unless they're choosing to abandon the other projects temporarily to work on one. Anything to get more money quicker, I suppose.

    That is a big, giant IF, I for one will not be to optimistic about it. The only hope we have is that there are still some people over at the Bioware arm that were on the KOTOR team.

    I agree with Chris, and all this really means for Lucas is it's likely going to become a liscencing entity.

    Say what you will but in my humble opinion, DICE + Battlefront = orgasm

    I have high hopes for DICE to make a quality Star Wars shooter, if anyone can pull it off it should be them.

    Yeah, top people that know how to destroy companies they absorb, along with the properties they get a hold of.

    Having EA handle the Star Wars games ultimately makes shutting down LucasArts Games rather redundant if the whole point was to protect the IP from poor quality games due to relying on a brand to sell games.

    I really think it's great that Disney is taking over, finally something will get done.

    Well, as long as Disney doesn't stuff up Pokčmon, that is.

    I'm not sure if this will end in tears or not.

    How? There is still the possibility of Visceral, or whomever EA desires, to develop it. Besides, I highly doubt DICE would've made it; most of what's under their belt is shooters.

    TFU1 and 2 were pretty awful. The latter a lot more.
