I agree. About half of my childhood LEGOs came from various space-related kits, but I can't remember keeping any of them together for extended periods of time. Inevitably I'd tear them apart to create my own starships (which would then break apart in cataclysmic crashes as the astronauts arrived in the strange, new world of our family room...)
The big thing I don't see my kids doing with LEGOs is demolition derbies. My friends and I were all about building the most massive, hardest-to-destroy vehicles and then smashing them together at high speeds. My kids are far, far more peaceful with their creations.
