```Following Mathematica syntax, the answer it gave was correct.
What you entered was equivalent to asking for the integral w.r.t. xx of:

xx^2 aa Cos

Where aa and Cos are constants.  I hope the CRC tables say
that the indefinite integral of this is:

(1/3) (xx^3) aa Cos

:-)

Try:

Integrate[xx Cos[aa xx],xx]
