I very much doubt they have the resources to do much with continents now. I like Esamir, it plays in a very open way, differently to the other 3, if there was one continent I would choose to remove it would probably be Hossin (I don't actively dislike it, it is just my least favourite). If PS2 had PS1's continetal varierty this wouldn't be an issue at all as it would already have Ceryshen: Icy cliffs, frozen plains, treacherous roads, snow-covered canyons Extremely tall cliffs create chasms and blocks that challenge the tactical mind of any Commander. Cliffs abound and a misplaced footstep can send you hurtling to your doom. Air vehicles can cross terrain quickly, but foot soldiers and ground vehicles find that many miles lay between point A and point B due to successive switchbacks and roundabout roads crawling up the vertical cliffsides. It even had WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and doors) However Esamir always seemed much more popular to me in PS1.
