Instead they jumped head on into Elemental and Demigod (I believe) and possibly others we never heard about with no concern for how those products would sell. Maybe there was more work being done on demigod and they canned that team or perhaps they just got rid of the elemental team and put the remaining funds into Sins Rebellion? The sale of impulse must have freed up some funds and maybe that is why we're seeing elemental and Sins Rebellion now.
Stardock didn't fund either Demigod or Sins. They just published them.
Stardock did the netcode for Demigod, which was its greatest failing. A huge chunk of the responsibility for Demigod's atrocious state at release belongs squarely on the shoulders of Stardock.
