Wizards of the Coast kicks Star Wars to the curb

WotC is done with Star Wars. As in, the miniatures and role playing games aren't being suspended--the license is not being renewed. Not sure what this says about D&D--whether this is good or bad for their main tabletop RPG by allowing them to concentrate on keeping it viable. This is all perplexing to me as the license for the action figures and toys is of course held by Hasbro, of which Wizards is a subsidiary.

I posted a more in-depth response over on Exonauts.

Yes, i'm curious how this transpired. Did things get to expensive? Did Hasbro try to agressively re-negotiate the arrangement, and Lucas balked?

All I know if, things are getting more and more perplexing, as regards all of Hasbro/WOTC's "properties"
