Back to the Future: "The Pinball"?

"Michael J. Fox refused to permit his image to be used to adorn the backglass of the game, and so the replacement image has a rather odd look." - Wikipedia entry on BTTF: The Pinball.

I can't even begin to deal with this right now.

First, why didn't MJF want the sweet, sweet royalties that come from Pinball image lending? Second, Why did the company go with two people who look nothing like the main characters? Why do they look so creepy and out of place? And most importantly: is it just me or does it sound awkward without adding "Game" to the title of this contraption. "The Pinball"... "The Pinball Game".

Also, I really want this.
