->We know what happens when the [[ExecutiveMeddling publisher shits the bed]], but what about when the ''developer'' earns the displeasure of the hotel chambermaid? When they are given too much development time as opposed to too little? As the publisher comforts themselves with the knowledge that even Creator/StanleyKubrick once took one hundred and seventy takes of the same scene, wilfully ignoring the fact that while Stanley Kubrick was a flighty auteur genius the same behaviour pattern can also be displayed by an incompetent spod with no planning skills and an indirectly proportional ego.
-->-- '''''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''''' (again) on John Romero and ''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}'', and this trope in general.

->'''Rikk''' (impersonating [[Franchise/StarWars Anakin]]): "I don't ''like'' sand, heh-heh. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets heh-heh ''evvverywhere''. Here everything is ''soft and smooth'', [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus wink wink, nudge nudge, knowhuddimean, knowhuddimean?]]"\\
'''Rumy''': [[Creator/GeorgeLucas Lucas]] makes me afraid. He's what happens when artists stop seeking criticism. Promise me you'll tell me when my own work is bad?
-->-- T. Campbell's ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', on "Franchise/StarWars [[Film/AttackOfTheClones Episode II]]"

->Surround yourself with people whoíre too afraid to question you, spend a few years having smoke piped up your ricker by studios whoíll let you get away with whatever you want, and believe in all of the magazine covers and hype about being ĎThe New [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielberg]],í and the twentieth draft never comes. The second or third draft; thatís good enough. '[[ShockingSwerve Monkey in a human suit]], Iíve nailed it! M. Night does it again, yeah boiii!'
-->--'''Stuart Millard''', [[http://franticplanet.wordpress.com/2010/07/21/the-self-destruction-of-m-night-shyamalan/ "The Self-Destruction of M. Knight Shyamalan]]



->Creator/{{George|Lucas}} admits to throwing too much out there.\\\
The editor then attempts to explain ''pacing'', and why [[MoodWhiplash four scenes with totally different emotional tones]] don't work well together--but [[OnlySaneMan he kinda realizes he's wasting his time]], so he stops.\\\
Rick [=McCallum=] [[ThousandYardStare is frozen in utter shock]] at how horrible the movie was. Internally he regrets not challenging Lucas on some of the things he was worried about.\\\
Later on, after [[INeedAFreakingDrink everyone started drinking]], Lucas attempts to explain his newly-minted bowel movement as [[IRejectYourReality 'bold', and 'extreme!', uhh, 'stylistic'!]]
-->--'''[[WebVideo/RedLetterMedia Mr. Plinkett]]''' on ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''



->'''Matt Stone''': You need people in your life, as somebody who does comedy--and even ''Franchise/StarWars''. You need someone to say "No, that's not very good", someone who's gonna be honest with you. And probably Creator/GeorgeLucas was in a big room of liars, with everyone sitting there, going "[[YesMan This is great, George!]]"\\
'''Trey Parker''': Cause there's no way that anyone with half a brain could have read that script and thought it was good. Any one of them, I mean, they're awful.
-->--'''Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone''' on George Lucas [[GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion retroactively editing]] the ''Franchise/StarWars'' trilogy.

->Sometimes I think the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' franchise is like Jim Carrey in ''Film/TheTrumanShow'': Itís this loud wacky dipshit in dire need of an editor who lives in the little world of his own surrounded by people reassuring him that ďNo, ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots MGS4]]'' was totally a touching emotional character drama, especially when the funny man did the big poo in his pantsĒ. And every now and again someone tries to parachute in wearing a t-shirt saying "''[[{{Narm}} EVERYONE'S TAKING THE PISS]]''" but get swiftly bundled out of sight by a dogwalker and [[CashCowFranchise a Sony executive.]]

-> ''Marville'' does not have the stuff that makes for top-selling comics, but it does explore the origin and meaning of life, so I thought it was worth a six-issue series. And, because Iím president of Creator/{{Marvel}}, [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem I could ignore the bean counters and publish]] ''[[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem Marville]]'' [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem without regard for minimum sales projections and margin requirements]].
