Hey Devs! I am not going to link to it because I don't want to get anyone in legal trouble but I have little doubt that you know that there is already a fine multiplayer Pazaak game in existence. These folks have already done the work for you. Why not just pay them to add it to your game? Every day people ask for a Pazaak game to play in the Cantinas. Mini games are always at the top of the request list. Well you have no work to do. Why not?

The worst part is they had a quest in beta for pazaak and sabaac, as well as a working gambling machine on hutta....

Okay so what is the legal issue here? If they don't allow actual money to be bet then they're solid right?

I didn't want to link it because of copyright stuff. Presumably Pazaak is a Lucas trademark etc.

Lucas Arts is screwing over a game they make money off of? Don't they get royalties/licensing fees from SWTOR? Why would they oppose this?

What was the quest? Did you actually play the games, or the quest involved them in the story somehow?
