BY PHANTOM: “Before the dark times, before the empire”, LucasArts was the development and publishing arm of LucasFilm. They were responsible for the interactive side of the Star Wars franchise – and by interactive I mean, of course, video games. LucasArts made many excellent games over the years in addition to some downright bantha fodder.
Doing a little digging online, it becomes obvious that working for LucasArts was not always a rosy and seamless relationship. The need for the lore aspect of their games to be just right was something of a sticking point and seemed to hold up and even cause major development problems for some games. That said, they were able to get many games published on a whole array of systems over the years.
