How about a mixture of Final Fantasy Tactics and Advance Wars, using GIJoe. You could have Advance Wars levels where the vehicles fight and destroy each other, and then when everyone has parachuted/ejected you switch to a FFT game, using the GIJoe characters.
That’s the real reason why the A-Team were sent to military prison. They were supposed to be a crack commando unit, but they couldn’t actually hit anything except moving tires. The government was so embarassed they had them locked away to prevent the rest of the world from finding out just how inept they were.
What would be the fun of a game where you shoot and shoot and shoot but nobody ever gets hit?
Are you kidding? Back in the day we didn’t have the chance for fully destructable environs. Sure, you wouldn’t be able to kill anyone, but you’d be able to blow up all kinds of buildings and vehicles and watch people flee the wreckage.
