* ExecutiveMeddling:
** Nintendo was accused by gamers and critics alike of shoehorning ''Star Fox'' into what many gamers saw as an interesting original concept. At face value they probably desired a more recognisable franchise, rather than gamble on a new intellectual property.
** However, at the time of its development, Rare's owners had begun openly trying to find a new buyer for their company. In late 2000 they had held meetings with both Activision and Microsoft. The move to include Nintendo owned characters into ''Dinosaur Planet'' meant that once Microsoft acquired Rare in 2002, the game was still a ''Franchise/StarFox'' instalment and Rare had no rights to any of the characters. One could perceive this as a rather shrewd business move to prevent Rare taking a potentially successful new IP elsewhere.

Eventually, it was decided that the game was a little ''too'' demanding for the system's limited hardware, so it was released on the [=GameCube=] instead.

** The game was originally intended to be a Diddy Kong Racing sequel with the main character being Timber as shown in the files for Sabre's character. If they hadn't replaced Timber with Saber, Nintendo might have shoehorned DK into the game instead with Wizpig taking Andross's place (in fact that was the ''original'' intention to begin with).
