Why Cancelling Star Wars: 1313 Is Such a Good Thing:

"On Wednesday, Disney (NYSE: DIS) announced something of a surprise. They are
shutting down LucasArts. LucasArts is the branch of George Lucas' company that
develops video games. Over the years they have made dozens of games based on
the Star Wars universe. But they also have developed other classic properties such
as The Secret of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.

But for the last couple of years the developer has been struggling. Four months
into the happy marriage between Disney and Lucas, Disney thought it best to shut
it down. 150 people were laid off. Games in development, like Star Wars: 1313, are
being cancelled. Dinsey now plans on licensing LucasArts' video game properties
out to third party developers."
