Well, I think Ward came in when the company was at its lowest ebb and streamlined things to keep LucasArts viable. Rodriguez inherited a smaller company with presumably less money available, and as such it was easier to return to some classic titles, particularly as there was a mounting internal desire to revisit them combined with an all-time low on the fan satisfaction meter.

Can the next Prez disregard that, fire everyone, and cancel all projects? Of course. But the games they're currently publishing are critically successful, popular and profitable. I'm not expecting this news to turn into a kick in the balls.
