Wow. You nailed that one. I don’t know if anyone remembers the old Panasonic 3DO systems, but I actually purchased one of those for around $300 I think. This was in 1994 (or maybe 1995). I bought Dragon’s Lair for the exact reason you mentioned. It looked really cool and whoever marketed that product needs a raise because of all the pretty pictures and exciting descriptions on the box that made me feel like this was a “must buy”. But this game was a dud in my opinion, as was almost every other game I bought for the 3DO system. You had almost NO control whatsoever of your character. You would move the controller when the character was ready for direction ( a few times per scene at best ), and the rest was simply eye candy.
