@therealmoot: I know! What the hell? Paradise sold gangbusters and they just decided, "Eh, good enough."? It's funny because the mentality we want is what leads to so many sequels which pisses everyone off (because people are dumb) but they drop one of the best games of the decade, a year's worth of huge, free DLC, and then just disappear. F*ckin' crazy.
In hindsight maybe they worked so hard supporting Burnout Paradise because they knew the franchise was over...?
