Actually, the thing I can never understand is why these expansions are priced so insanely high for the content you get compared to the original game. Think about it: in the original they have to totally make all the weapons, textures, sounds, enemies, engine, etc. from scratch, yet expansions aren't even half the length of the original and only add a small percentage of new content on top of the original game, yet retail for well over half the price. I guess they must REALLY compensate for the fact that the expansion won't sell as much as the original, so they jack up the price to even out the profit margins.
