Precisely!  And that's how the folks that I game with feel as well.  I 
am starting to give thought to doing some sort of DSII "lite"--something

a bit quicker and easier, that my group can play and enjoy as much as we

enjoy Shock Force.  We only, after all, get to game once every other 
week for about four hours, and leaving the figures set up for the next 
session is not an option.  Heck, I've reached the point where the simple

fact of being able to resolve a game in a single night leaves me happy 
as a clam.  No more have to adjuticate matters based on the way things 
were going when we had to stop....

Hell, maybe I AM getting old.
