LucasArts - Where The Company Went Wrong
David Goman a media studies graduate of Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge has a new guest article at Gamemoir about LucasArts.
The inability to create a coherent and well thought out story for sequels, specifically RPG sequels, will always lead to negative reactions and reviews. LucasArts at the very least, should have allowed Obsidian to produce an expansion pack.
It’s extremely fair to say though, that LucasArts have produced some amazing games over the years. If not for them the aforementioned KOTOR and Battlefront, the Jedi Knight series, Rogue Squadron etc. would never have been born.
Their downfall however, came at the hands of an inability to listen to the very people they were selling the games too. Whether their fate would’ve been any different is another matter, but perhaps if they had at least completed Battlefront 3, the attitude of fandom would probably be more sympathetic.
