    Games & especially fps's are 'light', because both producers & consumers don't want complex games.

    Producers don't want them 'cause they cost too much time/efford vs profit.

    Real simulators & strategy-games (and I'm not referring to Command & Conquer **** that pretends to be a RTS) tend to be niche-markets at best, while empty movie-based no-brainers sell like hot cakes.

    The average MTV-watching consumer doesn't want them 'cause he/she would have to use his/her brain ... and that makes their head hurt. It's much easier to complain and let other people do the hard work instead of trying to do it yourself.
