Did you ever hear The Tragedy of Star Wars 1313? I thought not. It's not a story that Disney would tell you. But Act Man will...
George Lucas selling Star Wars to Disney, LucasArts being shutdown, and Electronic Arts taking over Star Wars video games. Yes, it is a tragic tale indeed...

Upon reflection, Disney probably shutdown LucasArts to try and dispel the name "George Lucas" from Star Wars. That's why they didn't take his ideas seriously as a creative consultant for Episode 7. Disney wants Star Wars to be theirs, which it is by law. Star Wars was better with George Lucas around. What do you guys think?

It’s stupid to think anything else honestly... George Lucas created Star Wars. To act like you can hate George and love Star Wars is retarded in the highest degree. The fans always think they know what they want, and treat their opinions as the authority in whether Lucas-film made a good decision or not. but true fans only want additions and contributions to the universe without breaking the continuity , technology, chronology and linearity of Star Wars. Disney broke all of that. One of the biggest and most underrated desecration’s made in Star Wars is the pointless, unoriginal, uninspired changes made to the technology in Star Wars. Like bombs in space? That’s the stupidest unaffective thing I’ve ever seen. Do you know how easy it is to make rockets in space? You could literally strap a whoopy cushion to a explosive for propulsion and it would work more effectively than a bomb. Or the fact that they are using x wings 40 years after episode 6. The x wing was the only effective ship against tie fighters that the rebellion could afford. It was a fighter plane on a budget. Much like most of the rebellions arsenal, yet Disney regurgitated all of that back into the franchise 40 years after they freaking conquered the galaxy. All that was demonstrated was how the galaxy fell under terrible leadership after sidious died. (Episode 6) the new republic deserved to get blasted from the universe by the first order. They sucked.

It's the fact that the ST means nothing and made the PT tolerable. The ST is a major disaster through continuity and story. And the fact that 8 didn't care about 7 and 9 didn't care about 8. Basically an entire trilogy based on a dis rap battle. And the fact 9 made 6 irrelevant

I remember during the BF: Bad Company 2 days thinking how cool it'd be to have a DICE/EA Battlefront game. Basically a Battlefront 2 with the environmental destructibility from BC2, great audio, updated graphics and the cancelled BF3's ground to space battles. Shame that it didn't turn out like that...

So for Lucas's request, wouldn't of it been better just to have Boba come in as an expansion? If the game turned out amazing on it's own, imagine the hype for the Boba expansion.

Disney made made non stop mistakes with the star wars rights. Like you said the games kept interest in star wars alive, and expanded interest in the genre to beyond just the movies. George Lucas also had a pretty nice concept of how the star wars universe should function, and this concept is what star wars really is. A sci universe with the flavor of george lucas imagination. Disney took the star wars title, and just started pumping out generic sci fi movies. Since the movies are generic, they of course have no star wars feeling to them. They pumped out so much garbage that no one gives a shit about star wars anymore; Thus the franchise is dead.

Should have handed it to someone internally. Lucasfilm was the one company that could have potentially rivaled Disney with time. Now they are nothing, a memory, a whisper in the dark.

Literally all Disney cares about is money. They seen that Lucas Arts didn't create any recent games worth mentioning and thought "Oh. EA is making tons of money" They didn't care that we hated EA. They just saw that EA was bigger and produced more money. It's just disappointing that such an amazing game was just... Dropped. All for another money hungry company.

LucasArts is legendary, and not just for Star Wars games. They were also one of the premiere developers of graphic adventure games. Killing it was one of the first sins Disney committed against George Lucas' legacy (and those sins would only compound) It only added insult to injury than Disney sold the exclusive SW game rights to the great evil known as EA.

Just saying at 16 minutes when they criticize SW 3 they say Grievous appears out of nowhere. He was introduced in the Clone War cartoons before the CGI cartoons of the same name. Just saying, if you haven't seen this show it's awesome and Grievous is very well introduced in it. It was supposed to be a bridge between SW 2 and 3. I think it's quite amazing that they gave so much importance to an excellent cartoon that they made SW3 thinking any SW fan would have seen it. Those were the good times.

I think seeing 1313, fallen order and gearz of war, sorta should give us a good idea of what a good starwars game can be. Some sections could be Gears of War shooter cover type and some others with fallen order saber battles. Both sections have uncharted like platforming and tombraider like puzzles. The fallen order sections could have souls like level design, and the shooter ones can have more linear ish levels.
