Tell that to everyone who bought SimCity, The Sims, Rollercoaster Tycoon, or
any of the many other similar products. These don't even HAVE a product
marketing phase after the building phase of the game. It's ONLY about the
building. The desire to build is what crafting satisfies. You wouldn't say
that "building areas isn't fun, it's only what you do with the area
afterwards" would you?
