He is a wonderful storyteller. Everyone seems to focus on Star Wars as his great masterpiece but Indiana Jones is one of the top 4 FRANCHISES!!!!! (James Bond, SW and Batman being the others) The Indiana Jones films made loads of money and the stories were great! Lucas is the Spielberg of storytelling IMO. I am actually looking forward to his post-Star Wars work. Plus Lucasfilm - forerunner in revolutionary films ILM - forerunner in sfx Skywalker Sound/THX - I don't know if these are two companies or one but they offer some of the best sound LucasArts - StarWars games are still popular Maybe in 2008(after dvd's) we'll see his first non-Star Wars project in awhile.
