The closure of LucasArts was painful to see both in terms of the studio's legacy and the projects it had in the pipeline. One such game was Star Wars 1313, a visually-impressive title that showed up a couple of times and vanished into the abyss before we could get many of our questions answered. According to a Kotaku source, 1313 changed its focus during development to revolve around Boba Fett; the orders reportedly came from George Lucas himself.

The basic premise of playing as Fett has always seemed appealing to me and I can only assume I'm not alone in this feeling. What a shame. The game was, of course, canned after this week's LucasArts news. Although the studio had said licensing this game and Star Wars: First Assault would be possible, multiple sources have deemed the chances of this happening to be very slim.

"They ended up with movie tech that wouldn't fit in a game, and game tech that wouldn't fit in a movie," a source told the outlet. "1313 was always in danger of not being made."
