What game has loading screens that don’t suck?

While SimCity 2000 was generating terrain for a new game, it told you it was “creating hills” and “carving water” and “reticulating splines”. This became a running gag, and every game in The Sims series has mentioned those dang splines on the loading screens alongside nonsense like “extrapolating empire eigenvectors” and “making manic mansions”. It’s become a signature, something to lighten the mood while we’re waiting for The Sims 2 to finally start.

What game has loading screens that don’t suck? Whether it’s one with useful tips or a joke or just something that looks real nice and doesn’t last too long, what’s your favorite loading screen? Ones you add via mods, like the many Skyrim load screen replacers, totally count.
