Just because a game isn't your preferred style doesn't mean it's not someone else's. Turn-based RPGs are likely a smaller niche then even ARPGs, which is what I call the games as opposed to Diablo-clone, which is the way a lot of people who dislike ARPGs prefer to call them.

There are a lot of developers who focus on one genre of games. I don't personally play many FPS games, but I don't criticize Valve for continuing to make them either.
Of course you are right. I just always hope to get games from indie developers which i won´t get from mainstream publishers anymore. I mean there are tons of diablo clones out there and so few turn based combat games. But of course soldak can produce the games they want. It was a mere plea them.
