Jedi Outcast was 'made' by Ravensoft. LucasArts hasn't 'made' its own games in-house for probably near a decade.

I'm not surprised either. Outsourcing has become the norm now. Everything revolves around licensing for SW now... IMO. Star Wars is the goose that lays the golden eggs for George and will keep earning money for GL's estate long after he's gone.
