* ExecutiveMeddling: Possibly why the game was shut down. SOE said they were interested in keeping Galaxies going, but allegedly EA demanded exclusivity on Star Wars MMO's from LucasArts. Despite this, ''Clone Wars Adventures'' (a browser-based Star Wars MMO ''that SOE also maintained'') continued to operate concurrently with ''[[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic TOR]]'' for almost three years.
** Also a large part of the reason why the painting ''Victorious Reign'' got second place in the contest and thus banned from the live servers. To put it simply, the poster depicted a Stormtrooper [[UnfortunateImplications giving a pose that's too similar to the "Heil Hitler salute" and having a red background with a black thunderbolt that resembled the logo for the S.S.]]
