|Help me Falcon Gunner, you're my only hope.|
Falcon Gunner creator Josh Shabtai credits Kotaku, which broke the story. He says he believes that the story prompted LucasArts and THQ Wireless to work out a deal that would allow the games to stay on the App Store for the time being. What the heck, Josh? We covered it, too. I thought we were friends.*
The temporary stay of execution is dose of good news, but still leaves several questions unanswered. Shabtai would like to update the iPad version of the game to fix a bug affecting those playing on the iPad 2. He's also like to add an Endor mission and even has an idea for an all-new Star Wars chess game, but I'd say that one is pretty unlikely.
*No hard feelings, man. Call me!
