Agreed, 2142 is an incredibly underrated game. Titan mode is one of the most awesome things to come out of the battlefield series.
I loved it when it worked, but for me it very nearly never did. It almost never played out well, because once the shields were down, either one of two things happened. The enemy titan because a non stop flood of mines, RDX and grenades in every corridor on all levels, thus becoming impenetrable, or both teams just sit in their titans seemingly forgetting that the missile silos exist. Either way, the game immediately starts to drag on and on, and people start praying that at least one team is actually terrible at defense and that they'll crumple right away so the match can finally end.
...Alternatives were scenarios where people sat in the AA turrets and did nothing but shoot at the enemy titan's shields all match, or at least a 3rd of the team loiters around the hanger bay waiting for the gunship.
A more user specific issue was the lag. I could never seem to find a titan match that didn't. Beyond that, it was pretty fun, though I wished the titan was larger. A multi-level titan interior would have been so cool, but I guess it would have made all the problems I just listed even worse, lol.
