    Not on mine in the US, so it was probably pulled for maintenance

    as I said in my comments I checked the ios marketplace and they were removed from there as well. So I agree pretty sure thq lost the star wars mobile license, and iplay most likely lost there fast and furious license from universal

    Well I had the demo of all 3 games. Just got fast & furious a couple days ago. Anyway I was able to buy the star wars games thru the link in the demos. Unfortunately no link in the one I wanted.

    in iplays and thqs defense.

    These games were out on the ios for 2-3 years (as hoth alone was on iphones for 2+ years)

    and thq never renewed there star wars license and iplay didn't see the sales across the board on f&f they were hoping for so they didn't renew with universal so cant really blame luucasarts and universal for other companys from letting the license expire.

    ok maybe im wrong but on the iphone, android and even stream they save the files and you can re-download any game you've bought. MS needs this feature bad. they also need cloud game saves for the phone when the release it for the xbox. i've got a couple games i'm have way thru and my proximity switch went bad. ive got top either keep a defective phone until i finish the games or start over.

    Most purchased XBLA games can be redownloaded by looking at your download history list. There are a few instances where something like UMK3 can't be redownloaded period, but at least on 360 we can back up games on USB drives, etc.
