Lawrence Holland - LucasArts

LucasArts

He soon became an independent game developer, and achieved notability through a series of World War II flight simulators developed for LucasArts (then LucasFilm Games): Battlehawks 1942, Their Finest Hour and Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe.

The success of his WWII flight simulators lead to him being approached to develop a series of space flight simulators in the Star Wars franchise. The resulting game Star Wars: X-Wing was an instant classic, that led to the even more successful Star Wars: TIE Fighter, a game that is widely considered one of the top ten greatest computer games ever made.
