    That's not surprising at all. They were on the slow decline even before the Disney thing.

    I loved Knights of the Old Republic. I was so surprised when SPOILER REMOVED! It's sad to hear they will be closing down icon_sad.gif

    I would suspect nothing. They're two different companies.

    LucasArts is redundant with Disney Interactive.

    I loved the old classics like Sam & Max, Indiana Jones point and click, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle etc
    Why they stopped making those great games still annoys me.

    Monkey Island turned into a cartoon, then a 3d mess. They should have kept the old adventure games running that are now all making a comeback on Kickstarter.

    I had a lot of great moments with those LucasArts point and click adventure games in the early 90s. Good times.

    And of course KOTOR.

    One bummer is that they cancelled Star Wars 1313, which looked like a cool game based on what I saw in the previews
