Home Depot Fun Facts and Trivia:

There are many options
Check out Moen, Kohler, Price Pfister, Grohe...the list is long. There are many manufacturers who make long neck tub spout/valve ensembles. Some of them have hand held units that can be integrated as well.
Mine is a Grohe. It was expensive as hell but worth it.
I have installed many other brands. If you're anywhere near a Home Depot Expo store they have all kinds of stuff on display.
