In Kirkland, Wa., there is a corporate office park. Actually, scratch that. Kirkland is really just one big corporate office park, a moneyed matrix of tinted glass, parking lots and signs plastered with 1990s fonts. It looks more like a Rainbow Six multiplayer map than a town. It's home to Bungie LLC, formerly of Chicago, maker of Halo, ex-wife of Microsoft, builder of fantasy and empire.
