PS2 and camera controls

We were helping a room mate move along through his first play of Final Fantasy X. It's a good reminder that a few games do exist on the console that look really good for the most part (although in this case...frame rate problems). However, it sucks not to be able to look around some places because the camera isn't controllable.

That got me thinking. Isn't there a few other games where you couldn't control the camera, but you really should have been able to? God of War and Devil May Cry come to mind right away. I know I've played others, but nothing comes to mind at the moment.

Why is this? Games like the two I mentioned are games that SHOULD have camera controls. Hell, even Beyond Good & Evil had camera controls, although it didn't have stellar graphics or anything.

Hopefully the PS3 and Xbox 360 will provide ways to prevent fixed cameras. It some places it is appropriate, but not for a whole game.
