It was going to be to Twilight Princess what Majora's Mask was to Ocarina of Time, but Miyamoto made the team drop everything they had planned for it--including cutscenes and some kind of story--and instead focus the game entirely around shooting with the Wiimote Zapper. He didn't even want any bosses in the game, but relented at least on that front and let them include one boss (instead of the three they wanted).

That's highly disappointing. But not surprising, given that he also neutered Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

It was a pack-in game for a $20 plastic gun. How "epic" a game are you wanting?

That, feature creep is the death of many projects.

Anyway, we got BotW which is about as grand as we've ever seen from nintendo so who gives a crap?

The story scenes with Rosalina in SMG1 were beloved by the fanbase. The team wanted to do something similar with SMG2, but Miyamoto vetoed it.

That's the result of what the game became.

You'd rather have a pack-in game for a $60 plastic gun?

I mean, if the team made the game the way they wanted, it likely wouldn't have been designed so closely around the Wiimote Zapper to the point that it'd be a pack-in.

Then who would buy the plastic gun?

An actual good follow up sequel was what TP needed

Been saying it for years Miyamoto is out of touch

They could have always developed a different pack-in tech demo for it. Maybe a follow-up to Yoshi's Safari, if they wanted to attach a big name to it.

Yeah, I loved Majora's Mask (moreso than Ocarina of Time), and while I thought Twilight Princess was a bit bland, a game similar to MM but for the Twilight Princess world would have been great.

There are no "ifs". For all you know the original plan became too complicated and they decided to cut their loses.
