DISCUSSION

Boss fights haven't been relevant since the PS2/Gamecube era. To be completely honest, only two genres should have them, really: action games (DMC, God of War) and fighting games (SF4, MK). The two genres that the Japanese industry can still make on a consistent basis. Batman does not need boss fights, but its the only way they can shoehorn in as much C-list villians as possible.
