This. I think it's far more fun for him to play in the world he's made, with games and figurines and TV shows and whatnot, than it is for him to actually work to finish it. I'm not sure if it's greed (I'm almost certain he makes more from licensing than he does from writing) or laziness or a Peter Pan complex or what.

I bet he's typed the phrase "And then a giant meteor came and killed everything so God could go watch football and play with toy soldiers without hordes of fans bitching" more than once.
