There was also a perfect example of awesome movie based game years ago, it called Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher"s Bay, again as you hv explained, a tie in game yet working outside the movie storyline, it could work as another chapter of the titular characters. a very good article indeed, and i agree with you on those aspect.

Was an excellent game that really used the games story, although it did change a few little details.

The Arkham games in particular are (in my head) not related to the movies at all (certainly not Chris Nolan's Batman), but are a tie-in to the Paul Dinni TV cartoon. Certainly the use of Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin (with Batman vet Tara Strong replacing her in Arkham City) for voice actors reinforces that impression.
