"Though it's a bit funny considering the game they're putting out"
Is it, though?
If the Metroid name were not attached to the game and it was an original IP about Chibi Space Marines playing soccer, how many people would really care that it existed?
Likewise, anytime a person calls something 'A good game, but a bad [series name] game', that person cares more about the brand than about the product itself -- and if consumers care more about the thing that trademarks specifically protect, then why shouldn't the companies?
