[edit] Style/grammar

English is not my first language, but in any case I find this sentence awkward:

"Although the game includes familiar locations from Middle-earth it doesn't deal with the core story of The Lord of the Rings, instead choosing to create a tale which didn't happen but could have done."

It's especially the last part which reads wrong to me. Shouldn't the sentence rather be:

"Although the game includes familiar locations from Middle-earth it does not deal with the core story of The Lord of the Rings, instead choosing to create a tale which did not, but which could have, happened." --Morgan 13:45, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

I personally don't see a problem with the sentence - it reads fine to me. (But you may want another native-speaker to offer up their opinion, being, as I am, the author!)
There is a problem with your suggested "instead choosing to create a tale which did not, but which could have, happened.", though: you've created a subordinate clause meaning that "happened" applies to both "instead choosing to create a tale which did" and "but which could have" - "instead choosing to create a tale which did happened" is clearly the wrong tense. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:22, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Osgiliath

Should we mention that Snowblind Studios made Concept Art for Osgiliath? --Amroth 18:06, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

They're listed as the developer in the infobox (and opening paragraph) so it's pretty much implied that they'd do all this sort of thing. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:27, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
I did mean, should we mention that they made Concept Art for Osgiliath (under Featured Locations). --Amroth 11:22, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
I suppose that goes in Development. If it's the "War in the North", why did they do concept art for Osgilitath? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:05, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
That would be the big question. It might be a prologue, epilogue or just from a movie that gives the player information about the game. Though, this is all just speculation, but it's a fact (and in my eyes, an interesting fact) that they made concept art for Osgiliath. Development might be a better place to put it in. --Amroth 19:38, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Osgiliath (and Lórien) appear in War in the North in challenge mode. --Amroth 17:06, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
