I wish games would enter the public domain. Then Microsoft wouldn't be allowed to sit on the MechWarrior franchise. Disney/LucasArts wouldn't be able to sit on classic games they refuse to make sequels for anymore (Jedi Knight, Shadows of The Empire, X-Wing, TIE Fighter, etc.).

But why does a space shooter need to be Star Wars? Chris Roberts seems to be doing fine without it.
Do you really think it's the lack of a Tie Fighter that's kept the genre back?

And there are plenty of ways to do giant robots without the MechWarrior name. No indies have jumped up and made any of late. Is it just because they can't use the name? Would that suddenly make the difference?
