I honestly think Ron gets WAY too much credit for Monkey Island. I mean, yeah he was a big part of it, but he wasn't the ONLY person who made it. Lucasarts (or Lucasfilm Games, as it were), at the time Gilbert was there, had a HUGE collection of amazing talent, without whom I don't think Monkey Island would've been a success, no matter how close Ron was standing to the game as it was made.
There is no question that Curse of Monkey Island is a great game and gives suitable explanation to the ending of MI2, but people want to believe there's some ancient mythical brilliant "secret" that Ron holds that will somehow make the games 10 times better if he tells us.
I wouldn't hold my breath.
