The only reason I could see Let It Be not being part of the setlist would be if there's some kind of legal dispute between Apple Records and Phil Spector. McCartney HATED Spector's pawprints all over that album, to the point that he released Let It Be....Naked a few years ago to show what he *really* intended the album to sound like if Spector had not been around.

As has been stated MANY times in this thread already (at least 2 or 3 times by myself) "Let It Be" was recorded BEFORE "Abbey Road".
I'll give them credit for re-licensing the entire collection of Rock Band 1 songs to be used in Rock Band 2. That was a good thing. Unfortunately the patch that added that functionality was only really the second patch to Rock Band 1, following the first which only really added the DLC store.
I suspect that same level of 'service' will also be applied to Rock Band 2. Hold me back.
Re-licensing the tunes is key and getting the song catalogue beefed up is the one thing that RB can claim as the clear victory over GH with no questions asked. It makes me shudder to think that they would even think about releasing a RB-style game without exportable DLC... especially in light of not having a RB3 release in lieu of The Beatles game.I'll give them credit for re-licensing the entire collection of Rock Band 1 songs to be used in Rock Band 2.

I always laugh when people say, "they patched in the store" as if that were a selfless act that was a huge favor to RBers and that added a mode or addressed an unnecessary game play element that the community requested. You seem to have the same attitude as me... Thanks for patching in something that makes it easier for you to take my money. Honestly, thanks, I like it... but there's not a single HMX employee that could look at me with a straight face and tell me it was "just for the fans" or that it was the number 1 game play patch request.
Why patch something for free when you can fix it for the next game and sell it to someone? At least you won't be disappointed...I suspect that same level of 'service' will also be applied to Rock Band 2.
As a general rule, companies do not patch in new game modes or game improvements for free. It allows them to flaunt new features in the next iteration that really just address the shortcomings of previous versions.
This post may sound slightly scathing but it isn't meant to be. I think HMX does a good job and RB2 is a good product, but it isn't perfect. I have not had enough drinks of HMX cool-aid to not have a realistic outlook on the situation.
