Well, I think they NEED to be asking for more money. Selling more copies works great but eventually you get to the saturation point and have to start asking for more money to make games bigger (and hopefully better).

My first thought when reading the topic, though, was that we're lucky to still get 20-30 hour GAMES, never mind expansions. I get scared every time I go look and my favorite games and see via the achievements that most people don't finish. Even shorter games are lucky to get a 50% completion rate! I suspect the only thing keeping our games somewhat detailed is that so many people THINK they want all that extra content.

P.S. Another expansion: Albion Prelude for X3: Terran Conflict. Took me 40 hours to complete that.
