Sci-Fi Channel Sinks Stargate Atlantis; Why Not Resurface As A Video Game?

Stargate Atlantis The Sci-Fi Channel and I have this whole love/hate relationship going on.  I love many of the channel's shows, but then I hate when those shows are canceled to make way for more low-budget films from Estonia and out-of-place wrestling.  Joining the likes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Stargate SG-1 in the programming cemetery is Stargate Atlantis which will end its five season run in January 2009.  The series will then follow in SG-1's footsteps and go on to direct-to-DVD movies.  Movies are good, but why not take advantage of the opportunity produced by the cancellation and produce an Atlantis video game?  The Stargate Worlds MMORPG is coming soon, sure, but I'm still waiting for an actual honest-to-goodness single-player Stargate action/adventure game.  Let me take on the Wraith, resist the Replicators, pilot a puddle jumper, and engage in a new Atlantis storyline.  It'll help take some of the sting out of the end of the television series and provide some closure.
