It was said that the game was based on the books, not the movies, but there are a number of notable exceptions to this. Most notably is the artwork. The Shire is clearly dominated by above-ground structures with sod roofs, as in the films, rather than underground dwellings as Tolkein described. -- 21:27, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

"All Hobbits had originally lived in holes in the ground, or so they believed, and in such dwellings they still felt most at home; but in the course of time they had been obliged to adopt other forms of abode. Actually in the Shire in Bilbo's days it was, as a rule, only the richest and the poorest Hobbits that maintained the old custom."
