That makes Bad Robot look like control freaks and that seems inefficient.
It's not so different from how Lucasfilm handles Star Wars tie-ins. And there are cases where the creators maintain even more direct supervision over the tie-ins, like the Del Rey Babylon 5 trilogies (and DC comics), the Buffy "Season 8" and "Season 9" comics, etc. It's the prerogative of the creators of a franchise (or in this case, the developers of a new facet of a franchise) to maintain close control over its tie-ins, since it is their creation, after all. It doesn't always happen that way, but that doesn't mean it's somehow wrong when it does. It's just a difference in individual approach.
