I would say a Online virtual reality game, but since that will not happen for a long time. I think a Online Game that you can play with 7 other people besides yourself. Like a MMORPG but for the 360.

Like Garrison Nomad said, something like Star Wars: Battlefront. That would be ******* awesome.....
I even thought of a tech-tree thingy.....
Factions could be something like they are for bfme2, though with gondor/rohan seperate.... you would also get to pick your team and which one you facing... And each factions would have it's own advantage, like Mordor can have more units, but their units are weaker, Elves stronger but fewer, etc.
Anyways...
Each side would have a basic swordsmen, archer, and spearmen.
And then an elite of each one. Or maybe just a couple of them....
And then each would have a elite elite unit...... And seige weapons, horses, mumikil, etc. would be vehicales.....

For fun, let's do the factions!
Gondor (I guess they would have to be the most versitile faction. No real streagths or weakness. Good all around)
Swordsmen-Gondor soldier
Archer-Gondor archer
spearmen-Gondor Spearmen
EliteSwordsmen(or maybe pikemen)-Citadel guards
EliteArchers-Rangers(Would have to have a toggle with sword I guess...)
EliteElite-Fountain Guards(Spear/sword toggle)

Mordor (Mordor. Self explanatory)
Sw-Orc
Ar-Orc archer
Sp-Orc spearmen
EliteSw-uruk
EliteAr-Haradrim
EliteSp-Easterlings
EliteElite-Troll

Rohan(They get more horses at each command post then anyone else, decent units)
Sw-Peasent
Ar-Yeomen.....
Sp-I have no clue....
Elitesw-Rohirrim
EliteAr-Too bad, they don't get one
EliteSp-Rohirrim
EliteElite-Royal Guard

Isengard(Evil version of Gondor. Maybe a bit weaker, but a bit more units)
Sw-Uruk-Hai
Ar-Crossbow
Sp-Uruk-Hai
EliteSw-ummmm......
EliteAr-Uruk Scouts(bow/sword toggle)
EliteSp-......
EliteElite-Berserker

Elves(Fewest units, strongest[for the most part])
Sw-Lorien swordsmen
Ar-Lorien Archer
Sp-Mirkwood something
EliteSw-Rivendell Swordsmen
EliteAr-Either Mirkwood or Galadhrim with bow/sword toggle.....or maybe both?
EliteSp-Mithlond sentry
EliteElite-Noldor Warriors (maybe sword/bow toggle?)

Dwarves
Meh, I don't want to the do the rest........
What do you think?

I think the problem became that Middle-earth's world was too big for Oblivion's world. At least that's what I believe to have happened.

The game was to limited for what they wanted to do... Middle Earth world was far to big for oblivion... So they had to stop...

Shame really, Would have been very nice to play...

An LotR Total War game would be at the top of the list, followed closely by an Oblivion style one (I liked most of the concept art I saw for TWC, as they were a completely different team than EALA).

A finished BFME that lived up to the hype of the E3 preview and Inside the Battle vids would've been great too.

There are at least 2 LOTR TW mods out there.

Seriously, guys if you look hard enough, you'll find someone trying to do what you want.

I really like the BFME Battlefront idea, but the Elves in my opinion would be best attack and range, but worst defence (exept for some units). I would love playing that on a console :)

Yeah, Fourth Age: Total War and LOTR:TW are both interesting. Unfortunately, they'll only be able to do so much (No custom cities on battle maps, no powers for heroes, etc.). Also, wlesmana doesn't seem interested in porting LOTR:TW to M2TW once he gets it fully working for RTW, so it'll have clone armies and all that stuff. The Creative Assembly talked about doing a Fantasy Total War game, and a few of us hopeful types were hoping that EA would contract them to do an LotR one (leaving EALA to focus on C&C), but now it seems that a follow up to Rome is in the works (which is cool too).

You guys have done and are doing great things with BFME's engine, but there's only so much you can do with it. Also, multiplayer skirmishes have very limited appeal to me, so until someone does a good campaign and/or WotR mod I'm SOL (one of the reasons I'm following the RJ-RotWK mod with such interest).

I the meantime, Dawn of Fantasy looks very promising:

Nevertheless, it's likely they're the best we're ever going to get. EA seems to have given up on the LOTR license, and will simply keep it now to prevent any rivals getting any money off it..

Those wanting this much desired (for some weird reason since both Battlefronts were kinda awful.. unless you're a console owner I guess) check out The Last Alliance in the forums I posted earlier, a LOTR battlefield modification.

I also suggest anyone wanting an "ordinary footsoldier" experience check out the brilliant Last Days mod for Mount and Blade.

This is my Gondor Infantry Commander character in battle against a legion of Mordor (I had 180ish troops against 360ish... took a loooong time)
