Well, the development arm of the company, that is.

Yeah. On one end, I'm sad to see a long and proud legacy end. On the other side, LucasArts hasn't made any games I've wanted to play in close to a decade, so I can't say I'll miss them all that much.

The slow and quiet death of Totally Games (the team behind the X-Wing / TIE Fighter series) is one that bugged me a lot more when it happened. Star Wars: TIE Fighter is my favorite game of all time, and it's sequels weren't half-bad either.

I was wondering what they'd do for future Star Wars games. Well, we've got part of the answer today.

It's EA.

Crap.

No double posting. Read the rules.

Yeah, Lucas Arts hasn't been a good company since... probably about 8 years ago. It's a real shame because I remember when they stood with the kings; names like Apogee, ID, Epic Megagames and Sierra. Games like Day of the Tentacle. I said RIP to LA years ago.

I guess Star Wars characters can also fall into the EA Void now

I dunno, Hollow. I'm going to give Disney a chance on that one. They know how to make money, and I've been thoroughly impressed with their Marvel work.

No, I am referencing the fact that a great majority of EA games have what I call the "EA Void". Where you fall through a wall, or floor, or object, and end up floating in space for a brief moment until you get warped back, or die.

Or in Nightfire, you just get stuck in the floor and can't get out until someone blows you up with a grenade. :|

They have several other glitches but this one seems the most prominent, and still happens to me in new games.
