I've thinking about this for a couple of days now. You know how Fallout Tactics's full title was Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel? It almost implies that there was eventually intended to be other Fallout Tactics games not centered on the Brotherhood. Were it not for some of the problems Tactics had and its failure to uphold some of the big parts of the Fallout franchise like choice and consequence and open-ended questing, along with the combat system, I think that it could have made a good opening for a spin-off series about the Fallout universe's conflicts. You could easily do Fallout Tactics: New California about the war with the NCR and Brotherhood, or Fallout Tactics: Enclave (isn't there a new mod like that? Is it any good?) If these games had incorporated more of the Fallout flavor and had multiple endings, I think they would have been welcome as part of the franchise. Sadly, it seems that the team at Interplay and Micro-Forte were only interested in focusing on the Brotherhood with Tactics 2 and Fallout Extreme. Even their next attempt at a spinoff weirdly fetishized the Brotherhood... kind of like another studio managing the franchise right now.
