Google Earth Suddenly Becomes a Lot Less Attractive

Google has just released a new version of Google Earth, all well and good but this version requires me to install the Google Update Engine to run at all, decline the installation and you cannot run Google Earth.

I should be grateful that it tells me that it is about to install extra components and gives me a choice, but can’t I have a the choice to install Google Earth without having to install the Google Update Engine?

Updated Feb 2, 2009, Ars picked up on this too (1, 2).
