I can't help but find this trope a tad bit depressing. On one hand, it's nice to see a Genre Throwback every now and then. On the other, it usually means "R.I.P. 'X'" with whatever the thing is suppose to be a spiritual license was, especially if it's from the people who originally created what they're making the spiritual license too, having lost rights to it for whatever reason.

What the hell? Tony Blair? Magret Thatcher? On the same side? What the hell? Magret Thatcher-good? Atually good comparison (though I have a feeling the person who wrote that has no knowledge of British politics whatsoever. Blair's Labour.

I should say, this entire "trope" is VERY subjective. (Spirited Away? Code Geass? Seriously?) I'm not even sure it's a trope. I would prefer it to just be axed altogether.

I'm not sure Warcraft counts, since I've heard it actually was going to be a Licensed Game. Doesn't that fail the "Nothing to do with" criterion?

Tropers.Kazmahu: Not quite sure if this counts, so I'll ask: It's been said that Just Cause 2 is the best Michael Bay film to come out in a while. Does that fit here?

SevenSeals: Took out this: As a big fan of both Mass Effect and Star Trek, all I can say is... no. Sure, they've got things in common (it's both space opera with a lot of common tropes like Proud Warrior Race Guy, Cool Ship, that sort of thing) but honestly, that's it. Just because Mass Effect is probably the best space opera series to come out in years doesn't mean it's Star Trek. In short, I completely fail to see how this one is "really, really obvious".
