WCIII never did really get the races balanced right because they had too many. SC had a nice balance of human counters protoss who counter zerg who counter human going on and it's nice to know that isn't being fucked up by tossing in more races just because they can. Besides, if you think about it going from the original WC to WCII didn't add new sides but it was still a vastly improved game. Although these days maybe I'm one of the few that actually remembers playing either WC or WCII.
it doesn't have to be new races, but something should be new. the difference between wc and wcii wasn't just new units and better graphics, but also changes in playability (not having to build along roads... and i don't know what else, didn't play the original wc) starcraft allowed you to hotkey your groups, plus the whole unique races thing. wciii had the heroes rpgish thing and neutral creeps. basically, i'm hoping it's more than just another expansion for starcraft.

I've certainly been wanting a sequel to SC for a long time, and personally I never thought I'd actually see them do it, but whaddaya know. Good times, an upgrade to an already great game. I'll surely get a copy of this.
they sequeled diablo. coincidentally, the animation in diablo 2 was a lot more cartoonish and less dark, and from the sc2 screenshots it looks to be going in the same direction with starcraft.
