Tuesday sure was a day filled with emotion. For those who weathered Hurricane Sandy the night before, it was a real-life experience; then came the fantasy-based shocker that Disney was buying Lucasfilm and making a new Star Wars film.

It's clearly been a bit of a crazy day over at THQ and LucasArts. When we posted earlier today, both companies had confirmed that the Star Wars Arcade game would be pulled from the App Store by the end of the day tomorrow.

But not long after that, THQ and LucasArts did a complete 180 and decided that no Star Wars games at all would be pulled from the store. Um...what?
