The sad part is that Bill Tiller offered to expand his background artwork, in order to accommodate widescreen support but LucasArts showed zero interest. Honestly, I don't think that LucasArts could make a wise decision even if their life depended on it!
Darrell Rodriguez was the best thing that ever happened to LucasArts within the last decade, but the upper management got rid of him because they're fucking morons. If he had remained at the company then we would have received 'Ron Gilbert's Monkey Island 3a', not to mention 'Maniac Mansion: Special Edition'.
God bless you, Darrell Rodriguez, for all that you did and for the two remakes of 'Monkey Island'.
Fuck you, LucasArts, for being a bunch of incompetent boobs. I used to love you; now I pity your worthless ass!
