It'll never happen now until EA can make it some kind of always-online MMO. Disney went full retard giving the rights to all future Star Wars games to EA.

My reaction to Lucas Arts shutting down: Well it sucks for the people who lost their jobs but now ANYONE can make a Star wars game, that's f*cking awesome!!!

Few weeks later: "EA signs deal to where they are the only ones who can make Star Wars games." ....god dammit
