Not sure that the Batman games are proper movie tie ins - if you mean Asylum and City. They weren't released at the same time as the films. In terms of tie ins for Batman games you are better off looking at the Lego versions (apologies if they were the ones you meant) - they were quite good by all accounts, not played them myself.

Republic Commandos and the Battlefront games aren't titles I consider movie tie-ins because they don't actually follow the plots of any of the movies. This is what makes them better because they aren't tied to a specific movie release the developers can make a better effort to make something good. The Godfather was an excellent movie tie-in, primarily I think because the movie had been released agest ago the developers didn't have to rush the game out to meet a movie release deadline. Perhaps more titles like Godfather, Scarface or the Warriors would be better.
I'm not convinced a tie in game has to follow the plot to be considered a tie in. E.g. not a film I know, but Walking Dead games don't follow the plot of the series yet is obviously a tie in.
