Agreed. And this is actually a good reason why this entire thread is ridiculous. "LucasArts should do it because we liked game X" - as if the company autonomously produced the game on its own. As if the output of the game wasn't tremendously to do with the talent and creative environment available. As if LucasArts isn't 100% different now. And as if ANY of the people that worked on the earlier game would be working on it, or that many of the people responsible for those other games aren't involved already.
They might as well just say "should be done by EA".
One argument is that LucasArts would supply more money and this would somehow make things better. Though I'll bet the TT resources are stretched pretty thin, LA or ANY company would not necessarily help with that problem unless they thought the payout would be worthwhile.
And all this is based around the idea that ToMI guys are somehow WORSE than the originals. That's subjective, but I don't think that's true at all.
(Though I bet they ARE a bit stretched on resources, and helping with that might help produce EVEN BETTER games). One way to help with that? Directly? BUY MORE GAMES AND STUFF. Get your friends to buy them. Talk to Mac friends that may not even know TT exists, and point out the new games they just released for Mac. If you know people that "borrowed" or pirated the game, convince them that it's a bad idea, and to support TT. Order the physical DVD. And so on.
