Except the MMORPG should've been about Middle Earth and not about the Fellowship.

You can't make an MMORPG revolve around the journey of 9 characters from a book.

1,000s of players can't gravitate around the happenings of so few who's actions are so Scripted.

It doesn't make for a good MMORPG.

But he majority of the game *is* about Middle Earth. It is just that parts of Your own Epic Story intertwines with that of the original Fellowship.

The way this is done in LOTRO, letting the player feel that he/she is part of the timeline, and can be, in some cases, the direct reason to why the Fellowship actually succeeds with their task, is a very rewarding experience, at least for players that are fans of the books and films.
