Do you think it's good to have such blendings?
Sorry for the bump but that's precisely one of my girevances against Warcraft III, after seing the effect for the first time I've soon forgotten the cool impression and become annoyed by the useless slowdown it brought to the menu navigation.
Anyways, what the games of today should have as a menu, is what have most websites : Every window should be accessible from a single menu, itself showing up on every window. Like in World in Conflict, if I remember well.
I don't want to use the old "Back" button anymore.
Nobody wants to spend much time on the menus. Except if the music is fantastic.
