I was surfing past gamespy.com this evening and came across this story (http://pc.gamespy.com/articles/102/1021930p1.html), which in itself a report of a story at tentonhammer.com (http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/73904)

These stories report on a rumor that Lucasarts and SOE are in collaboration for a new casual Star Wars MMO.

Ten Ton Hammer has learned from an inside source that Sony Online Entertainment has once again partnered up with LucasArts to do another Star Wars MMO. While we have not yet learned the title of the upcoming game, it sounds like SOE is planning to use the browser-based Free Realms engine to power the game, and the game's setting will be the Clone Wars.

Interesting rumor. Yet another MMO but this one would be free and set in the Clone Wars.

This sounds... bad. Browser based MMOs tend to be not great... and to be honest, I've been very thoroughly unimpressed with the TCW video games that have come out (and I'm assuming that if this were to come out, it'd be a TCW thing.)
