Christ I could write a book on what you don't know, We wanted Aircraft carriers but Nintendo veto'd it, Originally the game was meant to be more open and freeform but Nintendo wanted a more Level by Level aproach, So many things and I can't remember half of them. John Kerry was the original inspiration for Colonel Austin, he had a pipe that blew bubbles ( pipe veto'd by Big N), then people started argueing about him, I said " If we make him black nobody will complain" ( Sarcastically), the lead loved that Idea. And so on and so on, The F1's about to start so maybe I can try and remember stuff latter, Sooo many years ago :).

do you remember anything about the online co-op mission that had tundra and the solar empire in it with the solar dreadnought and spy blimps that was cut it was named MP16 in the files it just skips over it leading me to believe it was cut late in development it goes MP15,MP17

and the only reason battalion wars is dead is because Nintendo wouldn't let you innovate

Well it's hard to critisize a company like Nintendo, The real reason BWii failed was there was no advertising for it, nobody knew it was out, It did get a few bad comments about being too level based and guiding the player too much but at the time Nintendo were more interesting in developing party games for casual Wii buyers. Expensive to make games like BWii didn't fit with there market.
      By the time BWii had been commissioned BWii was completely owned by the Big N, we had sold the game to them completely so they could do what they liked with it, even give it to another company. Remember Core owned Tomb Raider?,,,

Oh I do remember a story about Nintendo staff all trying to read the writting on the side of the Solar Empire fighter, It was Japanese text and the couldn't read it so they phoned up to ask what it said, I'd done it, I'd just made it up out of bit's of Japanese text but it meant nothing. They were quite dis-apointed. Oh and the Iron Legion was meant to be a hoard of demons conjured by Xylvania, I managed to find the concept for there leader.
