single player vs multiplayer

What do people tend to spend more time on with iphone games, single player or multi-player?

Has there been solid multiplayer bluetooth-based games recently?

I'm considering dropping multiplayer from something I'm working on right now to ease development, so naturally I'm curious about this.

Whenever I play a multiplayer game I play it a lot, but it gets old after a while and I delete it. With single player games I play it a little, then get addicted, then get to a really hard part of beat it, then come back and play endless mode/ beating high score... So about 50/50

Edit: Good single player and multiplayer (Bluetooth) is Street Fighter IV. One multiplayer game that isn't deleted from my iPod and has single player at the same time. Awesome.

Aside from MMO's on the PC, I'm mostly a single player gamer, especially on the iPhone. I always enjoy good single player experiences, but I have to imagine I'm an exception. It seems like our gaming culture is geared towards multiplayer, especially since online gaming is the norm now.
