uhhh, because george lucas plays a big role in the decisions and star wars made him rich

yamamoto1143487d ago

Actually, because LucasArts is a publisher, not a developer.

ThanatosDMC3487d ago

Exactly, they provide the money. So you cant really argue against the hand that feeds you or else they'll take it away.

ArtisianDragon3488d ago

Well whatever is "Hot" at the moment or was hot whichever you keep going with that. Some people are really crazy for star wars so you keep targeting that audience and your bound to make a couple of bucks. It's the same with various companies making Dragonball Z games over and over again. The only difference I guess you could say is that the DBZ games you have to start all the way over at the beginning and some star wars games (Using force unleashed as an example) Either have a tangent universe deviating from the story or play a part in the story that was never told/witnessed before.

What about Fracture and Indiana Jones?

bumnut3487d ago

im tryin to forget about those ones.

BrownPowerzz3487d ago

I know 'Fracture' was only published by LucasArts but developed by 'Day 1 Studios'

CliffyBs15YearOldBF3487d ago

theres only 2 great films, 2 crap films and 2 meh films... AND THE GAMES ARE WORSE!

SonyOwnsNextYear3487d ago

knights of the old republic2 on pc was hot.

If youre pc can run it full spec, it kicked ass.

It's because you like the sound of the light saber when it turns on or off or whips through the air, the sound of Vader's breathing, TIE fighter whooshing by sounds, blaster sounds...basically all the awesome sound effects and musical score is what I'm getting at.
