God the Core theme is 1000x better

So I should just drop $30-60 willy-nilly without any research in a shotgun approach and hope that I don't waste my money and find a game I love?  Should I do this on iTunes as well and just rent movies at random from Blockbuster?  No, I'm not going to do that because I'm not an idiot.  There's nothing wrong with doing some research to narrow down purchase options.  If a game's concept sounds interesting to me then I will give it more of a chance even if the reviews are iffy.  But there are many third party Wii games where:

A. I'm not interested in the concept.
B. I don't trust the developer involved.
C. I'm not part of the game's target demo in the first place.
D. The game gets crapped on in reviews.

Why the crap would I risk my time and money on a game like this?

Ian, why should a 3rd party developer try to satisfy you when:

A.) There are tons of customers who are interested in the concept.
B.) There are tons of customers who don't know/don't care about "developers".
C.) There are tons of customers who do fit into their target demographic.
D.) There are tons of customers who don't even realize there are websites and magazines that review video games.

You are a very small fish in a very large pond, Mr. Sane.
