Something I have decided after flicking through complaints about BioWare and their plot methods:

If you break a story down into its most basic clichés shorn of all context, that doesn't mean the story is actually basic or clichéd. It means you have a rough understanding of the way media is constructed. Good for you. Round of applause. Have a chocolate.

It doesn't form a basis for criticism, and attempting to act like it does makes you look like an asshole.

Signed, Someone Who Directly Compared Mass Effect 3 and Baldur's Gate And Was Blown Away By The Improvement Upon All Aspects Of The Latter In The Former, Thank You Very Much.

(P.S. Also, if you're complaining about how the choices in any of the newer BioWare games are forced, morally restricting and limited, while praising the game based on a system which put a helpful little label on every character to tell you whether they were nice or an asshole, you probably need to re-examine your argument.)
