Pouledoris' body of work is also fairly boring. Not much different, really.

Again, look at his body of work...These titles just scream classic material. Seriously, based on Bates' body of work, theyre not too different from one another.

Same goes for me and Pouledouris' CV. I honestly don't find his work to be all that memorable, outside of maybe a few titles or themes. And this is given the greater amount of exposure he has had over Bates so far.
