Try skies of Arcadia instead, still lots of random battles but a much more interesting story.

It isn't that bit that worked, it's the using SD mode first, then switching back to 1080i :)

that's such as good idea. I might have a go at doing a massive one, or perhaps one of those excel spreadsheet quizzes.

Component at 1080i It was the first game I tried after gettting a new xbox from MS (my old one kept freezing).

That said if you must stretch it there is the option to do so.
The stretching thing worked, for some reason it was on minimum so I stretched it until the frog was square. The play area then takes up about half of the screen.
