This relatively little known studio made two Battlestations games (both of which were WW2-set aerial combat games) until Square Enix gave up on the series and closed them down.

Alas, poor Psygnosis. Everything that studio touched turned to gold.

You do know Gearbox had little to do with Aliens Colonial Marines, right? They were too busy making Borderlands 2, which is an excellent game, to be bothered making A:CM for Sega - a publisher known for not promoting anything that doesn't have a blue hedgehog in it.
TimeGate, who did a lot of the work on A:CM, have closed their doors.

What I believe is the fact-checked reporting on the subject and not the ranting of random people on the internet.

I can't comment on the Brothers in Arms games, because I've never played them, but both Borderlands games are among the most entertaining I've played this generation, even though I'm not particularly partial to the FPS genre.
