3 parts see? Same game. Split up. 3 parts. You obivously don't mind that change, that is fine, but lets not go all fox news in here.

You're saying that Blizzard split a single game, and placed it into 3 games. And if each campaign only had 10 missions, and lacked multiplayer, I would agree with you.

What Blizzard did was split a single STORY into 3 parts. All of Blizzard's games have had expansions, and Starcraft 1's story, including the ascension of Kerrigan, was told in 2 parts: Starcraft AND Brood War. It is obvious from a historical perspective that Starcraft II's story is not going to be complete with a just single release, and this time Blizzard revealed two expansions, instead of one.

Also, your Half-Life 2 analogy is quite flawed, considering that each episode's single player is significantly shorter than the original's and adds no new multiplayer content (TF2 and Portal are separate games). It has been stated many times before that each of Starcraft 2's expansions will offer a full campaign, as well as other additions. Furthermore, they will likely cost $40, which is not far off from the $30 price tag of each of HL's episodes when bought separately.
