I recently got a lecture from TT, and I got the 'impression' that they were told to tone down the humour for LOTR out of respect to the source material.
Which sucks, cuz they had just shown us a reel of Batman videos and we were all laughing our asses off, and the stark contrast with the relatively humourless LOTR cinematics was pretty disappointing.
This had me thinking back to an article I read on one of my news app links about how LEGO wouldn't do an official Serenity/Firefly set because:
"LEGO produces toys for children. Therefore all LEGO products, regardless of age target, must be content-appropriate for this core audience. With this in mind we have decided that as cool as the Serenity model is, the Firefly TV show and Serenity film contain content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11. While we know this news will disappoint those who supported the project, we will not be producing this as a LEGO product."So it seems kind of odd that they'd have Lord of the Rings stuff because those films were still pretty violent for 6 year olds.
@Amazing Pinto - I'd be nice if they could, but my guess is that they probably net more from marketing towards kids this way since Movie to Game adaptions have such a bad reputation amongst other demographics. The EA Lord of the Rings games were just alright back on the Xbox, but that's because EA had the license on lock so there wasn't anyone to compete with.
I don't get Lego licensed games. Can't they just make regular games about those properties without everything looking like bricks? Just sayin'.
