I think it is pretty much this, I mean really how am I supposed to do anything but laugh or get annoyed when the main villains of the story behave as though they came out of a kids cartoon show or as though they are auditioning for an anchor position.
Every few steps popping up to let you know just exactly what they are up to. I honestly find it so...ugh hilarious in a bad way, that I find a missive on the corpse of a demon from Azmodan saying "Oh they wont suspect an attack from below" when he already appeared and stated that is exactly what he was doing...
Or Belial, I mean really comeon, all I can draw in conclusion is that he was supposed to be terrible and weak and pathetic at actually lying because from the conversations it looked as though both my Wizard and the Templar knew he was Belial as soon as he showed up everywhere you went like the freaking paperclip helper.
I'm not sure why it just seemed as though for Diablo 3 the bosses were really toned down in terms of being menacing and etc. I mean sure, the game is less scary because the story itself takes part in places that are not generally that creepy or atmospheric such as High Heavens, but -BUT- you can't deny that there is a lot more that takes atmosphere away too.
Like what is with the way Diablo says "TERROOORR? That has to be like some intended joke thing right? And of course there was literally zero build up or suspense to Belial and Azmodan especially with his little holo-confrence every 2 minutes to call you a fool and then proceed to state his plans.
Personally, when I am fighting a Lord of Hell I wanted it to be in some deep dark pit of darkness where you can barely see anything with a properly creepy atmosphere and music to make your heart race, not a massive, lit arena where the boss insults you throughout. For me, the only fight in Diablo 3 I felt had at least a bit of atmosphere and mood and fitting music to it was Queen Araneae.
