Considering how much fanbases are invested in the games and the impact the score makes on the sales... if I were a reviewer I would avoid reviewing games for genres I don't like... I know Halo is fantastic, but I don't like the type of game, so my 70 wouldn't do justice even if it was my sincere analyse.

I disagree. Critics aren't here to tell fanboys what they want to hear; they're here to inform. A well-written and informative review -- positive or negative -- will tell you if the game is right for you.

Critics aren't also to evaluate something they don't like by standard as well... like someone that doesn't like racers evaluating GT or FM, doesn't like FPS analyzing CoD, etc... Fair criticism is completely different than harsh score due to different taste.
