    Sad to hear.

    Rogue Leaders is a really good book that goes into a lot of depth about the early years of LucasArts and the many that followed.

    I initially wrote it off as I just wanted some interesting art I hadn’t seen before from Monkey Island and such, and while it had some, it wasn’t so compelling in that department.

    But taken as a complete LucasArts origin story, it’s a great read and packed with content. If you can get hold of it, anyway.
