StarCraft II's story is, you'll have discovered by now, terrible. However, it does pull a clever little trick with choices, Kieron Gillen explains over on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, duping players into always being an unfaltering hero who trusts their gut. It's simple but clever and effective. Of course, tons of players discovered they had been fooled almost instantly when they replayed it or discussed their choices on the Internet, which does somewhat spoil the magic. While this completely ruined it for some and they've reacted negatively, I still enjoy and admire the artifice.
Hey, what would the world look like if it stopped spinning? A bit like this.
