That's not really a fair comparison. LOTRO does not create much lore on its own. It adheres to prexisting lore created by someone else. World of Warcraft has a little of that of as well, adhering to the Warcraft lore, but it creates much more of its own lore and the prexisting lore was obviously created by Blizzard.

How about highlighting a game company that developed *in-house* more indepth lore and highlights it better than WoW, rather than one that trumps it due to having Tolkien's massive body of work to draw upon and allude to.

There's a lot of LOTRish lore in WoW too, but they go beyond that and have a ton of different stories that eventually work themselves around to fit in with the big story.

I have to completely disagree with this part. LOTR was a great and incredible story for a book, maybe even the best, but as far as game lore goes, I haven't seen any better than Wow.
