This Joystiq report confirms that the Star War: The Force Unleashed team has been closed down by LucasArts now the project’s been completed. From the story:

We spoke with one now ex-member of the team, who told us that the layoffs came just as work on the game was wrapping up. Our source, who wished not to be named, is one of several long-time members of the LucasArts talent pool let go, many of which had worked on titles including X-Wing, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango.

Mass lay-offs were partially confirmed at LucasArts earlier this month. More through the link.
