Can't they just make some awesome AAA title instead?

This along with the "Halo" game this week are just sickening. Well, the Halo game much more so. But it would be nice to have a real Hobbit game instead of more cheap tie-ins.

My heart goes out for the fantastical inhabitants of Middle Earth. God, LotR is the best movie franchise ever, and I expect The Hobbit to equal it at least...my God what has Kabam done. This should never have happened. I bet this is an IAP-fest...please prove me wrong.

Update: Looking at Sanuku's vid, everything is 'meh' save for the soundtrack, which is pretty good!

Would it kill movie franchises to make a good game?

No,look at the Batman games (at least on PC),sadly they're usually considered cash cows to be exploited asap,so not much quality there.
