It looks like an R&B cover!

other ppl grow up, the lucasarts logo gets younger... maybe this goes along with their product line, replacing witty adventure games with stuff like "learn to spell with jar-jar"

I liked the end logo in DOTT best where golden tentacle takes over the logo

Since all they still do is Star Wars, they probably wanted a logo looking more similar to that Lucasfilm logo seen in the Star Wars Movies, I guess.

Then they could just as well have gone back to the original LucasFilm Games logo, replacing Film with Arts. That logo was, at the time, pretty much a straight copy of the LucasFilm logo (complete with twinkling stars).

Yeah, I have to say I prefer the old (DOTT-era) LucasArts logo as well. I used to buy every LA game religiously, and I always looked forward to see what they would do with the LA logo. I especially liked in Rebel Assault at the end how the logo guy would "pop" the Death Star like a balloon, then it would fly around crazy for a few seconds, and then drape down over the logo, which would then make the R2 scream sound. =)

Good times, good times....

yeah, the rebel assault logo rocked

I also remember that N64 game (I think it was Rogue Squadron) where the xwings flew over a giant landscape which turned out to be a huge logo

this notes the formal end of the lucasarts adventure era, it's death was visable far in the past, but now the sign

Well, at least they've still got the gold guy. I was worried when I saw "new logo" that it'd be ditched.

They complain "Flash Player 6 required.", although I got 8.
Let me guess: The reincarnation of LA is IE-only?! :roll:


EDIT: It really is... WTF?!? :shock: :?:

Weird. I've got FF 1.5, too, and Flash Player 8 (which works on other sites). :(

No, I meant IE-only, as my IE displays it correctly.

BTW: FF 1.0.7 on Gentoo Linux displays it also correctly. Mozilla 1.7.12 also.

EDIT: What's the problem with Flash under Linux for you?

The games list is such a dissappointing sight:

Mercenaries
Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront II
Star Wars Empire At War
Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided
Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed
Star Wars Galaxies: Episode III Rage of the Wookiees
Star Wars Galaxies: Trials of Obi-Wan
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Star Wars Republic Commando
Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith
CLASSICS

Though I noted there is going to be a new Indiana Jones release at some point in 2006-7.

Hmph.
