Easily Rescue of Fractulus.
I love man of their other games but this was the most thrilling, time consuming shooter I had ever played and the sheer terror the first time an alien popped up still makes me laugh today.
Oh and hunting jaggies on mountaintops never got boring!!

Zombies Ate My Neighbors is my favourite. I do love the game anyway but I haven't really played that many Lucas Arts games to offer another opinion. Their point and click games always looks great and not liking Star Wars makes it rather tricky. Grim Fandango and Dark Forces were excellent though.

Loom. It was my first and still my favorite. Absolute superb music and atmosphere. I still think the Amiga version looks better than the garish VGA version. It seemed like the programmers didn't know what to do with all the extra colours.
