MTV News' Stephen Totilo asks a pretty tough question: where the hell is the Mission: Impossible: III console game? Sure, we all know Tom Cruise doesn't like his image being used in video games (see Minority Report's germanic stand-in), but where's the usually inescapable adaptation featuring another blond-haired, blue-eyed doppleganger? Even The DaVinci Code is getting a game, sans Tom Hanks' likeness.

There was no War of the Worlds game; there was no Last Samurai game (or was there?); there was a Top Gun game, but he wasn't in it...the list goes on. It's too easy to say that Tom Cruise doesn't want his likeness in a game because he thinks it will dilute his brand (or that he's afraid it will sap his life essence), but in a market where video game adaptations are the norm, the absence is notable...

...then again, there's little chance any game they did produce would have been anything other than garbage, so maybe we shouldn't look this gift horse in the mouth.

[Update 1: specified console game; Gameloft is working on the sure to be blockbuster cellphone version.]
