Oh that's true as well, but Blizzard better not use a Brood War 2.0 ending for this.
NO ONE wants to see a Brood War 2.0 less than I do, except - and time will tell - perhaps the writers of SC2.
Lazy writing would be no character developments and quick resolutions. That's not what we're asking for here.
Good. Although in a forum with diverse opinions and motives it is wise to speak in singularis.
With all the crap these two characters have been through, do you really think killing them off at the end of this entire trilogy is a good idea?
Absolutely not. Team SoK are my favourite science fiction team, ever. With 3/5 of the team dead or MIA, I'd really like for the last two to stay alive. Which means I'd prefer that they would stay alive over:
A) An implausible, weak resolution where Kerrigan and Jim get together through the Act of God.
B) They try to get together but one of them dies.
C) They both die.
It's about priorities. Obviously together, of different species, alive and victorious would be optimal but it has to be done WELL. And LotV has an inherent challenge of building around a theme that won't conflict with the Amon plot, so this is just another burden on top of a large hill of problems.
You need to understand, that Kerrigan's "complexity", is only as complex as Abathur's engineering degree (plus a few perks from re infesting herself on Zerus).
Not quite. I'd like to cite this:
And after all, as Jim keeps saying:"We are who we choose to be".
The deepest meaning of those words is that Kerrigans' choice is what makes her truly complex - and her choice to define the Swarm will inevitably mean that she's more than a leader - she's it's true soul now. She cannot simply be replaced.
In retrospect, I wouldn't be surprised if the Protoss too tried using Raynor in a way to force Kerrigan to back down by threatening his life.
Protoss don't do that sort of thing. The Protoss will get to work rebuilding Aiur or they'll finally starve to death due to lack of healthy Aiur sunlight (which is why they're all so thin). It's their choice to go extinct or not.
I agree. I really liked "Back in the Saddle" even though I guess it gave me false expectations for where the plot of HOTS was headed (my "illusion" was soon shattered in the following missions). I can see how much Raynor and Kerrigan enjoyed working together ("just like old times"), especially after reading Flashpoint, and it was a shame it didn't work out that way ("Dahum shame"). Oh well.
I liked it too, but my bets on my home EU forum were bugging me. You see I bet a few hundred Dignity Points that Kerrigan wouldn't have a sense of humour - the first lab missions were almost proving me otherwise but Kerrigan REALLY didn't have much of a sense of humour in HotS, which is obviously a good thing.
