1313 looked like a generic third person shooter but real pretty and set in Star Wars. Honestly, it was probably good, but not exactly unique or interesting. Many, many, many games will come out in the next couple years that will look just like it.

As for LucasArts being closed, what was the last good game they made? I think this is sad but it's more of a "sad way to put them out of their misery" way. Also, Disney has internal development and external license games being made, so maybe this means licensing Star Wars to other developers and a good game actually being made.

For me it's a nostalgic thing - I love many classic titles from this studio. I realize they haven't ever matched their former glory, but I have always held out hope they'd return to brilliance one day.

The best lucas arts titles go way back. Day of The Tentacle, LOOM, Full ThrottleBut to me, the game 'The Dig' was one of the best adventure stories I ever played, beautiful, thoughtful, just great.

Those games are classics, but I'd rather see their original creators (Ron Gilbert and Tim Rogers) make spiritual sequels than let LucasArts, as it existed in the last decade, anywhere near those franchises.
