Man, you could get a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles? Theyv'e been sold out forever here. Sadface. It was actually one of the reasons I grabbed a wii but I haven't been able to bring myself to buying it for around $100 on ebay yet.
When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.
