Yeah LucasArts basically died a long time ago. They're just finally getting around to burying the decayed remains.
As for Star Wars games? Well.. they're going to license the shit out of them. So it kind of depends on who they license to. Will they be picky? Will they license to someone with a track record of making quality games? Or will they be wowed by some douche's business plan that shows how cheaply they can cobble together a game and make big bucks by selling the name alone? I'm leaning towards the latter.
