LucasArts hires back dude who worked on Republic Commando

No April Fool's, gents.

The man is Longo. Tim Longo. And he's making an unannounced game for LucasArts.

Whatever is he working on? Imperial Commando at long last? Lego Star Wars super-remake? TF2-style Battlefront?

Since Mr. Longo has most recently worked on the Tomb Raider franchise perhaps a new Indiana Jones game isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Yeah, because after he did Starfighter, it was easy to predict he'd one day do a Tomb Raider, right?

I'm hoping for a new X-Wing game. Not so much because I love love love X-Wing, but I'd like to see a revivifying of the Space Combat Simulator genre. Although I'd sure take Imperial Commando. Gotta love melting the face off rebel scum.

You're probably not going to see a big budget space combat simulator ever again. They're just too complex for the average game buying pubbie.

While nowhere near first on my list of desires, I think a well-done podracer game could be outstanding.

I honestly read this as "LucasArts hires black dude" and was wondering what the connection was.

Either way, I'd take any kind of good/non-Clone Wars/non-LEGO Star Wars game.

Because in your mind that somehow ends up meaning "LucasArts gets its soul back"?

The keywords are actually "LucasArts" and "hires".

I'm with you on that. Rogue Squadron was one of my most favourite SW games. If they came out with something like that I'd be ecstatic.

Of course, I'd still take RC2 over (yet) another LEGO/CW game.

Battlefront wasn't that great anyway. It's basically just Battlefield 2142 with a Star Wars mod, except not as good and for consoles.

Now, Jedi Knight 3, X-Wing 2, Imperial Commando, I'd be all over those like a hobo on a ham sammich.

That's what was meant to be. Put yourself on the movies' battles. And I think it excelled on that regard.
