I still can't tell what Noble was referring to, or you for that matter. Guess I'm thick.
Regardless, I guess HMX didn't consider LRB a full-fledged game and therefore didn't worry about making the RB2 content available. Guess I should have asked about that before buying LRB.
RB1 was a full-fledged game. You can play RB1 content in RB2 and LRB. You can play RB1 and LRB content in RB2. They covered all the bases except for playing RB2 content in LRB.
I understand why you guys don't care. Most of you are just treating LRB like a track pack, exporting the songs to use RB2 as the primary engine. But families with young kids will want to treat it the other way, using LRB as the primary engine.
For families, LRB could have been a full-fledged replacement for RB2. It makes everything more accessible to my kids, and gives me content filtering, which I appreciate as a parent. Unfortunately, you can't get to the RB2 songs with LRB.
That's why I feel like HMX dropped the ball for families with young kids, which is sort-of the target demographic for LRB. Is it really that unreasonable? Seems like that feedback would be welcome.
I'm simply disappointed in how it currently works, and I hope at least when HMX does decide to make RB2 content exportable that it will be playable in LRB, just like RB1 content and DLC.

I agree with the OP, this seems like an oversight. I think at some point, there will be an export function for RB2 songs, but LRB may not be the catalyst for it...
It's not Rock Band 3. It's Lego: Rock Band.

Maybe you guys aren't aware that Band Hero treats matters exactly as I wished for LRB.
"The week Band Hero hits store shelves, 69 tracks from the acclaimed Guitar Hero 5 will be available to import for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 480 Microsoft Points, on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system for $5.99, and Wii for 600 Wii Points. In addition, 61 of the chart-topping hits featured in Band Hero can be imported into Guitar Hero 5 for Xbox 360 for 420 Microsoft Points, on the PlayStation 3 system for $4.99, and Wii for 500 Wii Points. The previously released forward compatible songs from Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero Smash Hits will also be available for import into Band Hero at launch. Finally, Guitar Hero fans can play almost all of their previously purchased Guitar Hero downloadable content in Band Hero, for a music library of up to 300 tracks."
Maybe I invested in the wrong franchise,
