Oh well, Eurocom's blown it. Rather than try to engage with chimeric nature of the Bond films, they've opted to dump Daniel Craig into any old adventure. I suppose this is symptomatic of a wider held belief that tie-in games are forever to be quicky cash-ins - why bother ponying up some extra dough for past actor likeness rights when you can just repurpose what you've already got? So for the 007 Legends stab at On Her Majesty's Secret Service you can forget about George Lazenby, Diana Rigg, and most especially Telly Savalas, whose bruiser Blofeld has been mutated into a composite lump of visual cues from wildly varying sources.
