Blog #4: Star Wars, The Legend Continues
In case you haven't heard the momentous news, Disney just bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. This means an entirely new trilogy of films along with, undoubtedly, tons of video games to come. Of all the Star Wars games that Lucasarts has made since the release of the original Star Wars in 1977, only a handful of them have actually been worthwhile gaming experiences. Knights of the Old Republic I-II, Battlefront I-II, Republic Commando, Shadows of the Empire, and the original Rogue Squadron come to mind. On the other end of the spectrum, games like Obi-Wan, and Clone Wars are gaming abominations. I am curious to see what video games Lucasarts will come up with to capitalize on this newly announced trilogy. Do you think the Stars Wars gaming universe has run out of steam?
