I can't really be bothered with changing resolutions, and to be honest, the chop doesn't affect me as much as I originally thought it would.
I've not yet played the game on Campaign mode, so I'm hoping that'll be normal.

I was really hoping someone would know of a setting I could change that I missed, but I'm starting to think that's not the case. So if I can't cange it I will be royally pissed and my next goal will be to make this issue a bigger deal so someone will finally make a game split screen correctly. I realize split screen isn't used near as much as it used to be with so many games being online nowadays, but it is still used to some extent and if companies are going to offer it as an option in the game, than they should at least accomadate a widescreen TV. I know I've rambled too long in the post, but one quick example of my point is this:
I have a 57" widescreen TV - that means its about 50" x 28"
now you split it horizontally (like every game I know of) and you now have two halves of 50" x14"
now to get a 16:9 ratio you cut off some of the ends and you are left with approxamately 25" x 14" on each screen
ok now lets do it my way, the same TV 50" x 28"
you split it vertically and you have two halves of 25" x 28"
to get a 4:3 ratio (the size of a normal non widescreen tv, which I think would be fine for split screen) you would have to cut off some of the top and bottom to make it approxamately 25" x 19"
That's 5 extra linear inches and a whole lot more square inches (Go ask your girlfriend if 5 inches makes that much of a difference).
even if you had to have it 16:9 than if you did it vertically it would come out to the same 25" x 14" as the horizontally, but you should at least have a choice on which way you prefer, because I think the same sized 16:9 image split vertically looks a whole lot neater than the horizontal split. I don't know about you but at my house we sit next to each other, not on top of one another (at least not with the people I play Halo with).
Anyways my rant is done now, sorry it was so long and confusing, but let me know what you think.

It's a marketing scheme really. Those friends that mooch off you to play Halo 3 will no longer want to play it split-screen. In turn, it causes them to go out and buy a 360 and Halo 3 for themselves.
