I was never really taken with FMV in games. Jedi Knight was an excellent game, but I didn't care much for the acting in the cutscenes. I've forced myself to forget the cutscenes in Rebel Assault II, the entire game for that matter.
I know when Wing Commander became a FMV game I lost interest in the series, I enjoyed WC1 and 2 alot, but once 3 came along I just wasn't interested in playing the game anymore. I'm glad we are away from those sequences in games.
Oh, and the first time I really noticed Jan Ors gloved hand was in DF II Jedi Knight, then when playing the first DF I started noticing it as well. I've never pondered whether it was a cynthetic replacement until this posts - could be though.
