THUG2 - Too Short

I got Tony Hawk’s Underground 2 on Monday. By Tuesday I had almost finished the story mode. Then my PS2 crashed during a save and I lost the file. I just completed it about an hour ago. 2 days in which I have been at school and that game has crumbled at my feet with 10450 out of 11000 goals complete. This is (IMO) a really short period of time in which to finish a game. Has anyone else found this?

>Yes I know about the classic mode but that’s not the REAL game.
>I used 0 cheats. I don’t believe in cheating until I’ve completed a game at least once.
