Monkey Island or no Monkey Island, that is the question?

Should we return/see Monkey Island in future TOMI seasons?


As much as everyone will hate me saying this I kinda miss having Monkey Island. It was refreshing finding new things about the island with each instalment/vision of Monkey Island . And while there may not seem much to be explored now, reintroducing it isn't as hard as you might expect.

For example:

SoMI introduced Monkey Island as a topographical map with a number feature points across the island.

LCR posited a totally unexplored dimension to the island by introducing Dinky and then the theme park.

CoMI repeated the theme park motif but elaborated further and used it in a functional way (unlike LCR).

EMI unfortunately exacerbated any mysteries already established in the previous games by returning to the topographical map, laying bare the island in all its splendid boredom.

ToMI however did not reintroduce the namesake leaving us to wonder whether it will ever be seen again, or will Telltale return those simple mysterious facets of the island or uncover all of its bounty like SoMI/EMI

So how could we reintroduce Monkey Island?
Perhaps a LOST-style story arc where the island moves about, perhaps a result of voodoo forces either manipulated by LeChuck or the Voodoo Lady.

Or maybe it could return as one of LeChuck's or another main antagonists pivotal means for a Caribbean super-weapon. Volcano's are destructive, we've all see the movies, now add some voodoo cheese to a dormant volcano and hey presto!
