Do the execs want to get paid for doing a good job here? Yes. Yes they do. But they're not dumb enough to take money out of the coffers when they're struggling to stay alive at a time that they know that being bought out will mean even more money for them.
And yet, thats pretty much exactly what the Caen bros did with Interplay's corpse. Essentially, they got more in bonuses than fallout online got in dev funds during the years they pretended to do something with it, so they wouldn't forfeit the IP to beth per the contract. I checked Interplay's financial statements for those years, and that was pretty obvious.

If they had instead used all that money to do actual substantial development, they might have had a leg to stand on and keep the MMO IP, and perhaps even get it released and made money off of it.

Now I doubt anything like that will happen with THQ, but my point is, greed can be very stupid and outweigh any logical thought.

Dude...he totally needed that third Ferrari!!
