Disprove the Toilet Theory

I have a theory that every game that has a bathroom and toilet is guarunteed to be a good game. I have never played a bad game that had a toilet. Now, I haven't played a lot of games, so I have no way of proving for sure that there are no games with toilets that aren't good.

Examples of games with toilets that were good:

Deus Ex, Goldeneye, Eternal Darkness, Perfect Dark, Half-Life, Kingpin, many many others.

Now, my challenge to you is, name a game that sucked that has a toilet. To qualify as a bad game, it has to have below a 70% rating on http://gamerankings.com/

Oh, and because I believe my theory is true and would thus lead to the immediate end of the thread, name any good games with toilets also.

Resident Evil is another best selling game series that featured toilets.

I kept finding Toad in the bathroom in Luigi's Mansion and that game sold fairly well and got a 79%.

Maybe there are no bad toilet games.

now you've given away the secret of a good game, everyone's going to do it, and the theory will be blown.

Toy Commander for dreamcast had a toilet also, not a very good game.

My roommate has a fascination with video game toilets... he always has to spend an extra 20 minutes playing around in the video game's bathroom - trying to flush the toilet or hopping in the shower or standing on the counter with the sinks and trying to look at himself in the mirror (which often isn't reflective). As for the original post - me and him have always felt this way about games with toilets in them and have had this very discussion before.

It figures it's an Army Men game that breaks the theory. There are so many of them that suck, they were bound to put a toilet in eventually.

Doesn't count if the toilet is larger than your character.

What about Army of Darkness: Return of the King? Did that have a toilet? It was reportedly terrible.
