Quoted from statsdoc:
To me, the integration in POTC is just right. I am not interested in seeing movie scenes over and over (particularly if the movies are bad like the last few). I like it when they just set up the situation and let me play pinball. The callouts and music draw me in more than the video. Hobbit is amazing in integration, but the shots were just not there for me. I have not played the latest version, but I stepped out of my order when I got a chance to put time on a local one.
The new home edition of Star Wars would be a headache for me. I enjoy the movies, but seeing those scenes over and over would make me never want to watch it again.
You know, I have to agree. At first I was disappointed with the video assets, but now that it's been a long term player for me, I really don't miss them at all.
In fact, I am already super sick of hearing Willy Wonka's speech in the Wonkavator. HERE IT COMES! For the 500th time, unskippably.
Likewise, I always skip the movie clips on Star Wars. I've heard them too many times and just want to get back to playing.
I really think movie assets are not the big deal some people think they are.
