I've never understood taking an established IP and putting it in a completely different context. The only time I've know this to work well is Hero's of Might & Magic. Perhaps some here know of others.
To me, it comes down to pure laziness/greed… big company execs don't know what to do with an IP unless it's been around 100 times before so they take an existing brand to 'try out' a completely new kind of game.
Admittedly, I'm biased since I loathe EA for killing off both Origin Systems and Westwood Studios. It's been decades now, perhaps I should let it go already.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
