>The development team hoped that Lucas would give Vader’s apprentice a Darth moniker, which at the time, was something that didn’t happen often.
>“The team threw a Hail Mary to George, saying the game would have more credibility if the apprentice had a ‘Darth’ title,” a Force Unleashed team member says. Lucas agreed that this situation made sense for Sith royalty, and offered up two Darth titles for the team to choose from. “He threw out ‘Darth Icky’ and ‘Darth Insanius.’ There was a pregnant pause in the room after that. People waiting for George to say ‘just kidding,’ but it never comes, and he just moved on to another point.”
For TFU video game series main character name, do you guys really think he would've done TFA any better and wasn't just upset and called them white slavers because they thought his ideas were a joke?
He didn't want to make sequels, the same way he didn't really want to make prequels. He did it just to sell toys and video games. If you're not gonna give a shit about your franchise, you might as well let a soulless corporation do the job. They can at least hire people who will care.
Ep VII by Lucas would have been fucking awful.
But that's not wrong, in fact he had a whole trilogy of trilogies planned out, it's just that when prequels flopped hard and the fanbase turned on him he lost the motivation to make them so he sold the rights
rofl. He wanted creative control before signing off to his "old" friends. They said no during the deals and he accepted the money. He could've just pushed it and they would've accepted.
Is this what contrarian /tv/ really believes? That Lucas was this fragile genius who didn't get a chance? What do you call Howard the Duck? Or *ANYTHING* in Episode I?
I get it, "HURR RLM SHILLS MEMES MEMES" but just because a criticism becomes mainstream doesn't mean it loses validity. The writing's on the wall; Lucas is a hack who didn't understand (and continues to not understand if you watch the Blu-Ray changes) the nuances of what makes Star Wars likable.
>be billionare George lucas.
> Sitting in room with dumb edgy farmboys
> they want to make a gary stu darth apprentice
> you swear at one point they suggest gary stu will beatdown ypur vader.
>they want to make him Darth, their fanfic insert on the level of your Sheev.
I dont see why they dont realize he just didnt give a shit or care that much about their oc eu garbage to give em a straight answer
There was another story out there I think he was meeting someone for the first time or something and it was incredibly awkward I wish I could remember more details but it was hilarious as well.
Lucas was probably bored to tears from the room full of yes men literally trembling to get his approval an then used some dad humor to fuck with them.
The man's worth billions, he literally does not have to give a shit about anyone.
>Our source says they were told to never say “No” to him, or to say, “Yeah, that will be easy.” They were also told not to mention Force Unleashed’s protagonist, Starkiller. If he’s referred to by George, it will be “that guy.” The most important rule, much like not feeding a Mogwai after midnight, was “Don’t tell George how the Force works.”
>Red Fly’s representatives arrived at the meeting point early the next day, only to find LucasArts employees rushing Force Unleashed artwork out of the conference room, and replacing it with other Star Wars artworks, including the placement of Sideshow Collectibles statues of Darth Maul and Darth Talon to the table.
>A friendly George Lucas entered the room and was eager to hear the pitch from Red Fly’s creatives. “Before they could finish their spiel, Lucas cut them off, stood up, walked over to the statues, rotated them to be facing the same direction, pushed them together, and said ‘They’re friends!’” adds the source. “He wanted these characters to be friends, and to play off of each other. He talked about the show Burn Notice as a reference point. He likened Darth Maul to Sonny from The Godfather, and he likened Darth Talon to Lauren Bacall. He actually did an impersonation of her. It was supposedly the weirdest impersonation of a ’40s actress going, ‘Don’t you know how to whistle? Put your lips together and blow.’”
>in fact he had a whole trilogy of trilogies planned out
Im amazed people still believe this. You obviously just started coming to /tv/ and never watched the making of phantom menace documentary on stream with everyone when we used to shitpost about the PT 2 or 3 years ago.
I know that if I lucked myself into creative control of a property millions of people worshiped, I wouldn't make half of the retarded decisions Lucas made. Starting with having sense enough to not fuck with the original trilogy.
>"BUT THEY'RE HIS MOVIES"
No they aren't, he only directed the first one. He got hypertension after it and decided "fuck being involved." So he's not even responsible for the best movie in the series, yet feels entitled to ruin it. Fuck him and his delusions of creative entitlement. Hell, McQuarrie did more to realize Star Wars than Lucas did. Lucas is just that "ideas guy" who always wants to rope in talented people to do his bidding.
>Lucas cut them off, stood up, walked over to the statues, rotated them to be facing the same direction, pushed them together, and said ‘They’re friends!’”
So he's unironically an autist.
Well lucked himself?.
He got it funded.
He got the ideas.
He made the ilm that he worked with side by side to make everything
He hired the artist, half the concept art are things easily remakable with george, tatooine = lwrence of arabia, c3po is a replica of some other female robot etc etc.
Goerge is the main element, the rest are supplements.
Even disneynkept the name lucasfilms, cause all tht infrastructure is what GEORGE made
