just to kill the time while waiting for another target to kill, why not let us play pong, or in game texas hold'em, or something kik arse like Archon (copywrited Crying or Very sad) Arkanoid? Battletanks?
with hold'em, you guys could put in a 3-5% house tax as an isk sink to help a bit with inflation.

even better yet, i dunno about the rest, but i would play the eve card game IN game, even if i had to pay some real money, or loads of isk for it... once again, another isk sink, and also a way for ccp to generate more income. i'd pay something like 30$ a year to be able to play the trading card game online, and maybe small fees of 3$ every time you want one of em little expansion packs... 'IF' you wanted ccp, you could charge 60-100 mill for expansion packs (an option for the wealthy in eve to blow their isk Very Happy)

ooo BOMBERMAN would be kick arse!!!! or an Eve version of galaga/space invaders :P

If You decided to get better kill/death ratio but pay for that with boredom and hours of patient waiting for good targets - maybe its time to change tactics? With little more risk and little bigger balls, pvp doesn't need minigames (usually, there are always poorer days).
-send scouts everywhere around
-be mobile
-choose more challenging enemies
-spread forces

As reward, you get more kills, more fun, and well, more looses too.

Mining should be based on your skills at arkanoid... It matches the profession, shooting little things at blocks to get things coming down to you...

Now, to make it more asteroid like, you shoot the laser (instead of the ball), it hits something and sends back a spay of liquid rocks or something and then you shoot back the laser... You see what I mean?

Oh, and CCP doesn't make us pay for expansions... This shouldn't change, it's a kind of policy that kept old players in for a long time.

nobody stops you from doing an IGB Game and use it.

Nobody forces you to play a boring game like Eve.

My point is, that if people want to play other games like playing Eve, it means that what they're doing is utterly boring and it should be changed, either by CCP (changing game mechanics) or by the players themselves (changing tactics or targets to something more challenging).

There is only one thing wrong with CCP introducing minigames - this means accepting Eve as an inherently boring game and resingning from any improvements, patching it with some arkanoid.
Its like if you had a broken leg and a doctor didnt even try x-ray or consider plastering but offered you a cool wheelchair.
