Even after MMO was popular I love games which are more in depth for offline campaigns than online... 8 Hours of gameplay offline = Fail in my book...
These game makers need to realize, games like Grand Theft Auto was and still are HUGE because of how in depth they were, and whether offline or online, they were/are a HUGE success & major fun!
Nobody's denying singleplayer experiences like GTA are enormously fun. But as long as they appear on the internet, day one, with a "RAZOR1911 GTA3.EXE NO-CD CRACK" then publishers stop caring about them, and turn to MMOs. It's not about what's fun, it's about what's profitable. And making things easy for pirates isn't profitable.
