LucasArts not too happy about Wii MotionPlus

Nintendo’s Wii MotionPlus add-on came as a shock to everyone – including publishers. So it’s not too surprising that a few aren’t exactly feeling buddy-buddy with Nintendo at the moment. Game Informer (via NeoGAF), however, claims that LucasArts is especially miffed.

It’s not too hard to see why either. When you’re hard at work on a Wii game with the subtitle “Lightsaber Duels,” 1:1 motion control probably sounds like a godsend. Shame then, that LucasArts was already putting the finishing touches on the game when Wii MotionPlus was announced.

And so, the wait for a real lightsaber game resumes.
