"The Legacy of Kain series" is more of an identifier/label than a name per se. I understand where you're coming from, though, since I remember having the same reaction when I was adding them to my collection. Still, if you check, both of these games happen to have their names exactly as displayed here on their spines. I'm pretty certain that's what was chosen to follow. Places like GameFAQs and Wikipedia have them named the same for whatever that's worth.

Check the PS2 spines here for reference: Blood Omen 2 and Soul Reaver 2.

It seems the US releases the title is Legacy of Kain Series, The: Blood Omen 2 and in EU it is Blood Omen 2: The Legacy of Kain Series.

Spine title is to be put into alt-name if it contains terms not in the item title. For example, I wouldn't put "Blood Omen 2" in the alt-title because that information is already covered in the item title. You could put into the description field that the spine title is Blood Omen 2.

Gotcha. Proper edits have been made.
