I'm bummed but not terribly upset. Hopefully we can get Kotor III out of bioware finally, and maybe even get a third Battlefront now...preferably from Dice but to each his own.
HMS seem like a good choice to finish off 1313, but from the sounds of it they tried to find someone before they officially shut it down and couldn't find any takers.

Overall i'm not that fussed as the people who were working at LucasArts during the 90's when they were making a ton of terrific games are all elsewhere, but it does suck that 150+ people now need to find new jobs.
