Hard to believe that Disney shut down LucasArts and cancelled the in-development games considering how far along some of them were. Thoughts? Opinions? Favorite games? I used to play X-Wing and Battlefront quite a bit back when I had time for games...

(EDIT) - Full disclosure, I worked at LucasArts for a while, where they sent me to external developers for various games (Battlefront 1&2, Mercenaries, etc), had me do tools for others (Lego Star Wars, etc), and internal development in between (Force Unleashed, etc). This also means my NDAs and contracts are somewhat.. modified.. so if you have questions about internal workings about LucasArts, I may be able to answer them.

Not really, they havent made a good game in a long time, probably battlefront 2 was the last actually good game they've made. Since then its just mediocre stuff

They need to come back and abolish this new Star Wars movie.. I have a BAD feeling about that one.

Battlefront and Battlefront 2 were the only good games that they put out. So i won't miss them that much, but i hope disney dose something epic.

it's sad to see companies that have created nostalgic games go, but in the last 8 years lucasarts has made hardly anything good . anything that has been good(always exceptions) with the LucasArts branding was outsourced to other studios. Good star wars games will still be made, and maybe even better ones in the near future.

Lucas Arts will survive without disney, since Disney isn't Disney anymore either.

yes and no, they screwed the pooch with clone wars, crystal skull and ep 1 but as a fan i will miss them but i think the new movie will at least redeem themselves as long as they dont direct it towards kids, starwars has alot of serious stuff and iniana jones was way cooler back in the day

That's LucasFilm, not LucasArts.
Former was merged with Disney and will keep making movies, the latter (the game company) was simply axed.

Personally, I miss the old LucasArts but think that they stopped making good games back in early 2000s. So as far as I'm concerned...no big whoop. LucasArts was way past its prime.

Long long ago, they did some cool stuff, but that Lucas Arts has been dead for almost 10 years. Why should I mourn Disney axing it?

In remembrance for what they did in the 1990s and early 2000s...

Adventure:
Maniac Mansion
Sam &Max Hit the Road- Subversively funny adventure game based on comic
Day of the Tentacle
Secret of Monkey Island
Grimm Fandango
FPS::
Dark Forces Series
Battlefront
Flight Sim::
X Wing series....
RPG:
KOTOR
Galaxies
