    Yeah saw that. A hope spot? A comment on Youtube summed it up perfectly:
    "Battlefront 3, Republic Commando 2, KoTOR 3 and no more fucking cartoons". However. This is still Disney... The only thing to hope is that they don't make SW a(nother) pile of shit. Wayii.
    To be honest, I'm surprised it was sold for so little.

    well Lucas is staying on a a creative consultant. But I am more worried about the fact the Disney is a kids company. The expanded universe is kind of graphic so they will most likely stay the course of the clone wars. By the way any thoughts about the Death Watch trying to take back Mandalor. Season 5 Is going to be playing them up

    I wouldn't know, I don't watch it. However, didn't Disney buy marvel comics? And wasn't Avengers Assemble good? That's what I've heard. So therein lies some hope.

    Just read that Harrison Ford said that he is willing to come back and do the next star wars. it would be really cool to see the whole crew back together. The fact that they aged so much would actually play to the effect that they are old war heros

    Well, if it's Knights of the New Republic, it'd make sense if they were old. Still, you'd reckon on some kind of life-extending technology with that much tech kicking around.

    Now that you mention it I have never heard of anything like that in the Star Wars universe. The only thing i can remember is some sith and jedi used the force to live longer. But never any normal humans using some kind of life extending tech.

    Sadly it's unlikely we'll be seeing any further Star Wars game titles as Disney completely shut down Lucasarts and laid off all the staff. I did hear a rumor EA would possibly take over some of the titles but given their track record lately I'm rather pessimistic about that idea.

    In reply to UberGrif500, #10:

    just got confirmed EA made a statement they have been contracted to make a number of games for them. How ever they stated that both the battlefront game and project 1313 have been shelved and they will not be making them
