To be honest, any game like Starcraft II where fans are waiting a loooooong time for a sequel is going to disappoint a lot of people because over the course of waiting, they're going to have developed their own idea of how the game should be and look and work, etc etc.
I'm dreading the reviews and inevitable backlash when Duke Nukem Forever is released.
My personal "Hmmm" game is Morrowind. Yes yes, I hear your boo's now, but quiet down! I just heard so many people, most of my friends amongst them, blowing their load whenever Morrowind came up in a conversation, and how I'd get flamed when I said I'd never played it and/or didn't have an interest in doing so.
Then I finally played it and... well, I don't get it. To me, there's just nothing that special about it. It's a good RPG, sure, but so is Oblivion, and it's just not got that WOW factor I heard everyone creaming about.
yes...the waiting for a major release like SC2 can be a huge let down especially since there's going to be a huge gap to just play other factions...its like u know the developers r trying to milk it for all its worth. this can cause u to loose most of the wow factor for any game. as u said sometimes inspite of the hype u just don't get what the fuss was all about.

Making new version of any games can ruin previous thought about last ones. So I would rather to keep those good thoughts.
Yeah, and after you realize the dev's have just been milking you the entire time you start to lose any and all respect you have for them and their other games.
Also another game I forgot: Command And Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight.
A fail attempt to port the Dawn of War gameplay into C&C, and one that caused most C&C fans to rage at EA. I was really disappointed in this, especially after having enjoyed C&C 3 so much. Way to mess up EA.
Generals was always set up to be a MP C&C, but it wasn't fully Westwood. Westwood sold the company to EA before Generals.
