Starcraft had this.
If you wanted to be a teammate with someone, but maintain a separate force, then you would choose player1, he would choose player2, and then you 2 would be set to the same "team".
If you wanted to be a teammate with someone, AND both control the same forces, then you would choose player 1, and he would ALSO choose player1. Bam, dual-control.
And of course, if you want to be at each other's throats, then... you didn't do either of the above.
I guess we could have all that, but we lack the space & a good menu system to allow users to pick what they want.
It is also far easier to say 'Bam, dual-control' than to actually program it that way. Lots of stuff would have to be tweaked/changed.
I was trying to get a feel on how players feel about the CO-OP concept, and looking at the poll, I can I now know a bit more how the forum people think it should be done.
