LucasArts loses President, other executives

Seems that abrupt presidential departures are all the rage at LucasArts. First, former President Jim Ward resigned in 2008, and now current President Darrell Rodriguez has turned in his cape and Darth Vader helmet as well.

The news comes from Kotaku, who reports that the exits of Rodriguez and a few other members of LucasArts’ executive team were announced during a recent staff meeting. Development teams and management beyond the publisher’s top level apparently won’t be affected.

We imagine LucasArts will put out an official announcement with more details soon. Until then, though, we guess you’ll just have to wait in breathless suspense while you fret about which pages you’ll have to tear out of your “Executives of LucasArts: Swimsuit Edition” calendar. As if losing the above seductive gray-scale photo of Rodriguez himself wasn’t bad enough!
