If you were making a licensed game during the NES era, having a title screen that painstakingly recreates an iconic image from the movie your game was based on was pretty much a requirement. It didn't matter if these title screens took up half your cartridge space -- it was important to show off you badass pixel art skillz.

Of course all the games these images came from were completely awful garbage, but hey, sometimes a true artiste just has to say, "Screw it, I don't care how my game plays, I just want a really bangin' title screen".
