Sony Online Entertainment and LucasArts are shutting down the massively multiplayer online portion of Star Wars Galaxies, in addition to the trading card game, on December 15, 2011.

Yeah, MMO-loving Star Wars fans have The Old Republic to look forward to, but it's still sad to see a long-running game close down for good. There's something oddly eerie about online games all of a sudden ceasing to exist.

"During the last week that SWG is available, we're inviting the community to participate in a galaxy-ending event," says the official site, which also offers details on fan appreciation offers and important dates.

"We're going to end with a bang and we want the final chapter of the galaxy to be written in part by the dedicated and passionate SWG community. Details will be announced at a later date."
