Did people complain when Retro announced Metroid Prime 2 and 3?

Metroid Prime is a bigger deal. DKC is a 2D platformer which is much easier to make. Retro fans want a game that deliver on a bigger scale than what a 2D platformer can offer.

Except Prime 2 and (specially) 3 were VERY different to Prime 1, unlike DKCR and DKCTF...

Metroid Prime 2 was a sequel on the same system. Retro had made one game, Metroid Prime. Some other company was handling Donkey Kong after Nintendo sold Rare. Then there was the fact that Namco has handling Star Fox & Sega F-zero. Nintendo didn't have rights to the old Rare franchises so they couldn't revive those, and Raven Blade was forgotten about.

Then came Metroid Prime 3 people didn't complain because once again Retro had only done Metroid games. When it came to Nintendo Metroid was considered the 3rd console pillar behind Mario & Zelda. The F-Zero people would have just wanted the Sega people to handle it again. As of Star Fox no one knew, but they did want Nintendo to make one, nothing was directed at Retro till they successfully revived Donkey Kong from his slump. But then seeing Metroid go to pot with other people handling it people got worried.

Its quite obvious why people are complaining, they know by now some games can fall by the wayside. They don't want Metroid to fall into that trap again, and they don't want Star Fox to do repeat performance.
