True. These are the biggest advantages expansions have over mods. Even high quality mods that are technically better than official content look shallow without appropriate voice acting (something I have yet to see modders do) and new, unique features.
Anyway, no developper/publisher in their right minds would skip an expansion release (read : an income) because some over-excited fans are messing around with an editor. What is to understand here is that LA and Petro are in this for the money.
