The game development firm of Lucas Film Licensing LLC (of George Lucas and Star Wars fame) that's in charge of doling out the license for all official Star Wars and Indiana Jones games. In addition to the aforementioned, the studio is also famous for producing adventure games like Full Throttle and Day of the Tentacle as well as the Monkey Island series (and most recently, the Mercenaries series), as well as a series of World War II and Star Wars-themed flight sims developed by Lawrence Holland's Totally Games! studio, mainly Battlehawks1942, Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe and the Star Wars: X-Wing and TIE Fighter space combat games.

More recent titles that they've either published or developed in-house include Fracture, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction (note that its sequel, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames had its publishing rights given to Electronic Arts by developer Pandemic) and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. However, The Force Unleashed would prove to be the last in-house game developed by LucasArts; soon afterward, in the summer of 2008, the studio was disbanded, with LucasArts announcing that it would go back to its roots as strictly a title publisher.

Compare Sierra, their main Adventure Game rival.
