I personally cannot wait to see what will come out of these two companies as one. I loved some of the classic 2D adventure games from lucas arts. Day of the tentacle and Monkey island being high on the list. And Free radical seem to like to throw in a bit of comedy/stupidity into their games aswell.
I can see this going well.
