Current main page typography

TTG put a lot of effort in typography. Many wouldn't even notice it but as a graphics designer, I do and I love it! On the current main page there's a beautifully typographed logo of tales of monkey island. Followed by 'Rise of the Pirate god', the P of pirate is a bit off but it's not too bad. But the 'Grand Finale Now Available' text looks so badly typographed I couldn't resist pointing it out. The in the character spacing there are large holes and break up the text and message in a bad way. It must be the font that has no special kerning for character combinations and no ligatures for fi or Fi combinations.

My quick edit:
