Oh, I know they have names. I just don't remember them because their characters were so meaningless (In the game. I'm sure if I did a bunch of external reading I'd find a wealth of meaning to them. This is a discussion about the game.), and I'm not going to bother looking it up when you already know perfectly well who I'm talking about.
How does this not show a level of a disrespect, close mindedness and bias?
Well drat, I must have missed the part of D3 where I could collect the sword pieces in any order.
Or maybe I missed the part of D2 where I could get the amulet then the staff then the cube. Or the brain then the heart then the eye. Or even reverse that. However I felt.
Oh god, two sets of quests that let you choose what order you grab the items you need?!
1. You could choose which stone to get first in the Alaric questline.
2. You could choose which vial of blood to get first in the Zoltun Kulle questline
Yes, Diablo 2's story is linear. But Diablo 3's story is on rails. There is a difference between the two terms.
I just gave you two examples where you could choose the order in which you got items. Just like in D2. Either D2 is on rails or D3 is not, because they operate the exact same way.

After that they bring back the confined room similar to how he was encountered in D1, which actually works - but he's listening to Maghda?! When did Butcher join in Belial's cadre when his forte is brute force and Belial is (supposedly) finesse.
Belial isn't Magda. Magda frequently uses... whatever those demons are, the ones with the massive axes. As for the Butcher's loyalty, Butcher demons are Diablo's demons... but Diablo is thoguht to be dead by all of Hell, so many demons up and shifted alliances.
