Disney is reviving Lucasfilm Games (not LucasArts)

I've never been a PC gamer so the name doesn't mean much to me, but for people who grew up playing their games this should be pretty exciting. It would be nice to see more Star Wars games though and not just FPS games.

It'll be interesting to see where they go with this.  It does seem that Disney is milking the cow, though.  You know, like this...

Lol With the movies I agree but I'd like to see more games, especially ones based on the original trilogy.

I think they have learned they need to refocus on the original stuff.
