I still can't deal with the giant monkey head being a robot in EMI. And since we already have an pretty good 3D in the tales, there's only two things left for a remake of EMI: controls (point'n'click) and ... the story. ^^
I'm really happy with the special editions, though. The music is fabulous, and the whole game has lost nothing of its flair. Sometimes I can't decide between old style and new style graphics. It would have been cool to add the voicing to the old style in SoMI:SE, too, however.
