Would like to add:
Dungeon Keeper 2, Populous: the Beginning were made by EA long after Molyneux had left Bullfrog.
Also, one can easily see the shared lineage and iteration between Populous, Theme *, B&W – in each case you are some kind of overseeing entity that influences how things go through actors that are not commanded directly or precisely (possessing in DK being the big exception).
But yes, Peter always overpromises – and I agree with you – it is not a good idea to pledge for a game on the basis of what he promises (whereas traditional investors do not care – they do not finance a game of his because they want to play it).
