Because of the games lack of deep RPG elements, some people like myself will now buy it.
I totally agree. The lack of deep RPG elements is actually drawing me to this game. I'm sure there are a lot of other Wii owners interested in this game for it's more platformer feel. IMO removing the deep RPG elements fits more with Nintendo's strategy of trying to bring new people to gaming or bring old gamers back to gaming. I tend to relate RPGs with more of the hardcore gaming crowd. I'm looking forward to this game and I planning on getting it on release.
