I remember that game, played it on the gamecube. I thought it was great! The writing is pretty clever, by being on the trail of the fellowship all the time,  great game.

LOL yeah they sort of ignore the story of the films just as often as they try to remain faithful to it.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

When you play nothing but rpgs and it takes months to beat some of them, well... I haven't been so good about finishing games lately.  Or at least it takes me forever.  I finally bought The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age on a whim a few weeks ago and got so swept up in my love for LOTR that I finished it off in just 2 weeks.  The mechanics are ok, the story is weak (the story they give you on top of the film story I mean).  But I love the environments and enemies, and kicking ass on Middle Earth was a lot of fun.  35 hours for me.  Highlights were fighting the Balrog and Mumakils (those giant elephants, and fighting 2 at one point was maybe the toughest fight of the game).  Time to go back to Final Fantasy XII, so I don't repeat what happened to me 4 years ago:  getting really far then not finishing.  I'm further now than I was back then after restarting in October, and though I fell victim to this pleasant orc slaughtering distraction, I'm lucky it didn't derail me too much.  I was in the thick of some rare monster and esper hunting.
