Seed Magazine had a very long interview with Will Wright. They start out with Spore but soon they wonder off to many other subjects. Below a part:
"Basically replace the magic with science, because I think science is every bit as magic as any magic. I never really like fantasy books for that reason. I was never a big Tolkien fan. I always felt that magic kind of removed the drama from a story because magic could do anything; there were no limitations."
