** It seems UbiSoft recognized this complaint though, as not only is he showing up in the Tyranny of King George DLC but apparantly will have a major part in the 2nd and possibly 3rd episodes as well. So Hooray.

** Why did the First Civilization design the eye in a way that required a human to not only turn it on themselves but to sacrifice their life too? Since the First Civilization had the technology to accurately predict the far future (they were able to guess Desmond's name despite him being born thousands of years after they died out), why couldn't they program the eye to activate when the disaster was about to start?

* Why in the world wasn't Creator/BenjaminFranklin the game's resident LeonardoDaVinci? Franklin makes a brief cameo in the beginning, but then the next time we see him, is signing the Declaration. That's it? No [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys sweet new tools?]] Seems like [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter a missed opportunity]].

** June already answered your question FYI. She says that consciousness is just an electrical impulses. And it can be stored in a machine. When she says so, she touches the wall of the Temple. Ergo the entire Temple Is a vessel for June, i'm assuming. The Eye is a force field generator, engulfing entire planet, which can only be activated by genes of TWCB (i'm assuming). And finally once the Eye was activated it sent out sad electrical impulses, liberating her from her prison. The reason why she hanged out to chew out Desmond for being an idiot, is just that - she wanted to gloat a bit. I'm assuming that her mind was torn from her body (like Clay's) and uploaded into the hardware of the Temple. However she isn't an ArtIn. She's like GLADoS, in a way sure, but she retained herself, albeit ~Slightly mad~. As for what will happen after, i think in her Ghost from the Machine form, it will be a lot easier to take over the world. Sure, no sexing for her, no sex slaves and what not, no kids, but plenty of slaves period. I also think that June will simply take over Abstergo, seeing that they are rather close to taking over the world.

[[folder:Lee's distraction for recruiting Pitcairn]]

* What exactly was Lee thinking when, after trailing Braddock's group with Haytham, he runs up and insults Braddock. He puts on a fake accent and the lines he uses clearly show that he's trying to make himself out as an anti-war civilian. But...doesn't Braddock know him by face ''and'' by name, ''and'' just minutes ago see him? What exactly was the point of pretending to be someone else when he didn't even bother to change outfits to at least give the ''impression'' that it might be someone else who just happens to look exactly like him? I mean, it worked in the end, but that one part just makes no sense.

** The problem that seems to be is if he was not meant to be an {{Expy}} of Leonardo, then why wasn't his character noted as important at all? As said in BenjaminFranklin's trope page, he's the most famous American to people outside the United States. His two brief cameos didn't do him justice to his historical character. He didn't need to be a major vehicle in the game, but there wasn't any kind of exploration or emphasis on his work and depth. This could be said arguably about a few other historical characters in the game as well.

* In the "Broken Trust" chapter where Connor has to race back to his village to stop his people from being massacred by the Patriots, I noticed there's a point at which you ride right past a big gaggle of Continental Army soldiers. Presumably these are the Patriot forces come to massacre the village. Why didn't Connor just attack them right there? We've seen that Connor (to paraphrase a term from [[TheSpoonyExperiment the Spoony One]]) can kill like a category five hurricane made of tomahawks and musket balls, so it really shouldn't have been much trouble for him to take these guys down.

**It is revealed in Assassin's Creed IV that Abstergo has taken Desmond's corpse and started mining it for information and entertainment, so this is likely them rooting through Connor's data.

*** Just because the redcoats resources favor one side doesn't make that side Templar. Most redcoats aren't Templars, they just soldiers whose resources are in some cases co-opted by the Templar cause. Remember how both societies work, from the shadows they use the resources of society. A lot of these forts were military positions that redcoats held (as they were originally the only military presence in the colonies. Templars simply installed one of their figureheads into these forts thus making them "Templar" with most of the redcoats inside none the wiser. From most of the soldiers' perspectives, your just some hooded battle crazy native man attacking the British army. They're not pledging negligence to the Templars. As for why aren't there patriot forts? It would make no sense for Templars to seek out and co-opt patriot resources because these people didn't even have their own supplies. Most of Connor's targets make that point resoundingly.
