I know that "would like to" is very common and that "would like that" sounds unnatural or plain wrong.
How about "would like if"? I found the following sentence on the Internet:
Who would like if there were collectable figures or other products of sins of a solar empire,like for example a large model of a seekerhttp://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/312821
(1)On the one hand this sounds okay to me, but on the other hand I couldn't find many examples of this structure, apart from the one given above.
So, my question could be: how do native speakers feel about a sentence like
(2) I would like if there were more shopping centres in our town.
Thank you very much in advance.
