Shadow of the Colossus

"Shadow of the Colossus... sense of solitude... overwhelms you with simultaneous feelings of calmness and despair. Whereas most games rely on scattering their environments with living and breathing creatures, intricate structures, various types of foliage and the like to bring their worlds to life, the near-complete lack of any of these in the world of Shadow of the Colossus forces you to essentially paint your own picture of how the world came to be as it is, why it is essentially a wasteland, or even a prison if you will, for the colossi that inhabit said land."
-- 'Shadow of the Colossus' by Chris Roper

...yeah, and Lucas could have learned a thing or two before over populating the re-releases with redundant, comical fauna.
