There's a Halo in all of the main games. I suppose there's technically one in Reach, in that you see 04 from Halo CE.

There's also

*Halo 4 Spoilers*

A halo in 4, even if you don't go on it. The station from the second to last mission is in orbit around or near one of the halos.

Halo 1 - Installation 04
Halo 2 - Installation 05
Halo 3 - Installation 00 & 04
Halo 4 - Installation 03 (though you don't land on it you a) Pass it and b) It is integral to the plot as it is where the Composer was hidden)

What a silly topic.

So it makes sense to call a game with NO halo's "Halo". I'm glad I'm on the opposite side of your logic.

Why was Back to the Future 2 called Back to the Future? They didn't go back to the future, they went there for the first time. In 1 and 3 they were trying to get Back to the Future, so it makes sense.

Jurassic Park hasn't been in a Jurassic Park movie since the first one. Why were Jurassic Park 2 and 3 called Jurassic Park? Why not just "Island where **** gets real" 2 and 3?

Halo 1 had a Halo in it.

Halo 2 had a Halo in it.

Halo 3 had a Halo AND the Ark.

Halo 4 is on a Shield World, another Forerunner creation. So it still makes some sense.

Halo sounds better than "Shield World", don't you think?

Halo: ODST

Halo: Reach ????

How in the hell do you market a successful series if you keep changing the name?
Have you ever had a turkeyburger? Is that a fried turkey leg wrapped inside a burger? Because if so, then yes. Delicious.

What about resident evil? Or lost planet? I mean, the planet obviously isn't lost because people are on it.
