CGI/Stop Motion Animation

Last night, I went to the local Drive in Theater.  I went to see two CGI flicks, Despicable Me 2 along with Monsters University.  Well watching, I thought to my self: "CGI in animated films has become so great that you could throw in some Stop Motion or a real object and no one would notice it from the CG aspect of it."  Well after pondering this I realized that really the only film to employ this method of CGI/Stop Motion was in LAIKA's ParaNorman.  Now, ParaNorman only really used CGI for background characters; I'm saying that CGI could be used not only for background characters, but for sets, and main characters also.  This is just a thought but I'd love to hear feedback and what you think on the matter.  My email is chefelepsy@gmail.com, or you can comment below.

We have heard LAIKA say that The BoxTrolls will be a mix of CGI and Stop Motion, but it still maybe just background characters.
