Oh most certainly. Sega seems willing to be throwing money at RPG developers to make some games based on their properties, so why not take the money and do the project. As ridiculous as I find a Sonic RPG to be, it's a solid entrance into the DS development market for Bioware. It gives the team on it some (more) experience working on the platform and presumably in a fun way.
It is silly, but if you can get your dev studio some experience on the platform by working on a marketable title while being silly, why the heck not do it.
You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.
