"Hey, what if we made Arkham Asylum, but with a weaker story, less atmosphere, and a bundle of problems getting around an obnoxious overworld so we can pass this off as an open world game?" "Will we have better boss fights so people don't complain about the one problem in an otherwise near-perfect game like last time?" "Yeah, sure." "Great!"
