E3 2011 will play host to Star Wars Kinect and BioWare's MMO The Old Republic. LucasArts has "tremendous potential," with "beloved and powerful brands".
Recent Star Wars games have been The Force Unleashed and its sequel, bridging Episode III and IV. "LucasArts is a company with tremendous potential,” said Paul Meegan. “I think people look at it and wonder why it hasn’t done better in recent years."
“Lucasfilm has some of the most beloved and powerful brands in entertainment, we have a loyal community of fans, and talented people in every discipline. We’re surrounded by staggeringly bright and creative people at the top of their games."
"In recent years, LucasArts hasn’t always done a good job of making games. We should be making games that define our medium, that are competitive with the best of our industry, but we’re not. That has to change," he went on.
“Our priority is to create authentic, immersive, high quality Star Wars games.” Give us bloody X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter already! How long with Paul Meegan last as LucasArts boss? What should they focus on in the Star Wars franchise, videogamer?
LucasArts should be "making games that define our medium"
