Pokemon doesn't have console games. As for the others, aside from the NSMB games from Mario I generally don't hear as much about the handhelds (older ones anyway, see example) as much as the console games from the same time. I guess most of it is me not looking in the right places. Though, I still hold my views on the price stuff, and ironically (I bet I have misused that word like everyone does) that's also one of the sore spots I have with this whole ordeal - I will spend the money on a cheap(er) DS and this game (plus it has a sequel I'd like to look at) but I'm not spending what almost $400 for a console and one game (unless someone makes something actually good for that console) that they could easily put on the PC (LEGO Battles would have to have several updates, mainly graphical, which is why I don't say it can easily get a PC release, though that would have been nice too).
May I point at all the Mario, Sonic, Pokemon, etc handheld games? Those certainly aren't less important than console games.
I don't know, I just haven't seen much talk about this game at all.
I dunno how LEGO Battles slipped under the radar for ya, as from what I've seen it got as much promotion as any other classic LEGO game - perhaps it was drowned out by TT's heavily promoted licensed titles?
Yes, but will people actually push that possibility, or just make stuff that could be done without? The Wii's motion control opened up a lot of possibilities, but a lot of later Wii games toned down its usage or just didn't know what they were doing.
Why not? Seems to me it opens up a lot of new gameplay possibilities.
Look at where the screens are located on a handheld in relation to each other (right next to), and then look at where they are on the Wii U (look up at TV, look down at remote, over and over).

It could be that I'm misjudging it and it's not that bad, but again, there's just something about it I don't like.
Of course, a lot of my distaste could be bias against the poor little console just because one game company decided that this would be their first game not omni-platform as well as their first original game. Have I mentioned I'm still mad about that?
Where? The only time that word even appears in that post, it's jokingly struck out. I only put it there because of what Extreme said.
Yet you called it a gimmick in post #12.
