Two Sharks in One Jump!

Way to go, Harmonix and Traveller's Tales! Lego Rock Band will soon be coming to a home near you.
While I can see the desire to make Rock Band more kid friendly, and while I know that there is no brand more kid friendly than Lego, this still feels like one of the most ridiculous franchise pairings since MK vs DC.
There's been news of a Lego MMO in the works, and now this. The Lego Star Wars games are easily some of my favorite platformers of all time, but Lego, Traveller's Tales and Net Devil (the team developing the MMO) are all going to have a very hard time maintaining the whimsy and charm of those titles while pushing out such a glut of new games.
