I don't think that Hollywood is totally blameless, mind you, but Microsoft seems to have strutted into negotiations believing that it held all of the power thanks to the tremendous moneymaking potential that is the Halo franchise, and Hollywood just doesn't work that way. It's bad form to walk into someone's house as a guest and start making excessive demands. Hopefully someday the two can patch things up and try again. While the Halo games do not interest me, I'd see a Halo movie if it were properly produced.
