no KOTOR 3 because of force unleashed?

if this is really the case then i hope lucas enjoys the fact that he ruined another good aspect of the expanded universe.

force unleashed may look cool but it is written by and directed by lucas and is simply an add on to the dismal prequels while it further contradicts the original trilogy from 1977-1983. it even contradicts the prequels rule of 2.


Mass Effect from bioware may be a sweet game but it is certainly not Kotor III, no jedi or lightsabers. in fact looks like a halo clone with rpg elements.

Lucasarts missed the boat bu having obsidian do part II instead of bioware. part 2 was a critical flop despite good initial sales. obsidian asks lucas for the go ahead in late 2004 for kotor III and never got a reponse. shortly thereafter in 2005-2006 force unleashed was announced, lame.

Kinda Like how Del Rey and Lucas allowed Troy Dennng to first kill off Anakin Solo in the njo and suggest killing off mara in the legacy series. thanks to troy denning the expanded universe novels are ruined.

I have to agree. More than once these dumb moves have ruined something in the star wars universe. Like you said The NJO ruined the expanded Universe. I dimiss all of it completly now, I'm done. The last straw was another skywalker (ok, a solo by name) became a sith. I mean get real, again? WTF...get serious, and give Luke and them a break. You mean to tell me Luke, not obi-wan, yoda or the emperor, was the only one than sensed there was still good in his father, yet he couldn't tell that his nephew was turning or sense anything with Mara??? Plus it's the whole, geez, ANOTHER skywalker bloodline gone bad??? That whole story line ruined the expanded universe. It's just sad to see lucas allowing it to happen again.

It reaches further than just star wars. The Indiana Jones game I was really looking forward to was put back on the shelf so Lucasarts could work on FU [the Force Unleashed] Even if the game is fun, it wont be great, Sadly.

Is that the Indana Jones game that they are always bragging about being amazing in the fact that every character has 100% unique facial expressions when punched that never get repeated? Because it always cracked me up at what a big deal they made out of that. I mean, I have made many complants about things in video games, but the fact that characters used recyled facial expressions has never actually been one them. But yeah, I agree, an Indiana Jones game is always a lot cooler than a Star Wars game these days.

I agree. Sorry to hear Lucas Arts can't cope with more than one project at a time. If they always worked at this rate they might only get one or so releases per year, fortunately they spit out silly little crappy Star Wars titles left and right, as well as hire others to make SW titles for them then slap their name on it, so that it looks like they have been busy. Oh how the great have fallen. If you told me back in the late eighties and early nineties, or even in the mid-nineties, the kind of games LucasGames Ltd./LucasArts would be releasing by the year 2007 I would haved laughed in your face. I sure do miss those old games. Well, at least we still have Bounty Hunter and Star Wars Super Bombard Racing...

I'm a bit disappointed with this news.

Honestly, The Force Unleashed feels like the new Shadows of the Empire to me.

Marketing filler until the bigger projects arrive.

Darn, I didn't know that this upcoming IJ game was canned. Oh well, I guess I should've got used to such things by now...

I can sign myself under these words as well.
I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

Hey, Shadows of the Empire was a great game, filler it may have been, but it was some good filler. It was like finally having a real Dark Forces sequel. And with Shadows being filler before the prequels, it is sad it came out so much better than them, both storywise and in feeling like it fit with the OOT.
