Overview: This session is a summary of the effort to develop a new user interface design for Real-time Strategy (RTS) games on consoles and the separate and additional effort to adapt the content of The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle Earth II, a huge full-featured RTS, onto that console design. It includes live demonstrations of prototypes that lead to the design and a live demonstration of the game on the Xbox 360 with emphasis on the user interface.
