I believe that was made by Bioware.

If it was then Jedi Outcast

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

Actually LucasArts made JO with Ravensoft, they still made it...part of it at least

Inyri 06-09-2008 02:20 PM

Which part? :)

I been owned by an admin... tk doesn't wub me anymore. :(

Hehe gotta be the only one, though. Explains why it was only half finished.

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.
