I didn't buy a 360 and HDTV to play games with 4 year old graphics.
I share Gargoyle_King's view in this matter: for all the games I have seen, the ones that really got you and kept you interested were always second in graphics. The point is, with time and money being short, shorter today than they were some years ago, attention to detail can either be given to blood-n-guts-everywhere-lights-flash-kaboom graphics and 'realistic' looks (hang on, we're in a faraway galaxy, and it was a long time ago), or you can turn all your skills into producing a compelling, in-depth story with characters that are more than furniture.
