** Perhaps they didn't all need to cry out for help, but were just not calling for help because of how dangerous the Rhombulans were? When they finally decide to call out for help, they figure that, if anyone can stop the Rhombulans, it's the EBA?

** OP: I think people misread my post. I didn't say "The Carrington Sisters should have been left to die", I said they should have learned how to fend for themselves rather than just getting others to do everything for them. That way they could have become better people. Instead they ended the song just as spoilt and airheaded as they started it.

** I think "Let's Dance" kind of fits because of the lyrics that go "If you say run, I'll run with you. If you say hide, we'll hide. Because my love for you, would break my heart in two." The formerly rich oil baron is basically doing all this because his wife told him to and he loves her. (Even if she arguably doesn't deserve such love, gold digger that she is.) The "Canned Heat" song I think fits because of the lyrics "I had no choice but to get down, down, down, down! Dance! Nothing left for me to do but dance!" think of "getting down" and "dancing" as the ninja stuff and it fits because his father basically told him to get the plans or don't come back (if I remember right). Soo that's my take on why they chose those songs.

** Their parents are divorced, and the events of "September" was the one kid's weekend with his mom. Alternatively, and less cynical, Sam's owner is on a school basketball team, and he had practice that weekend.

** Songs don't often have anything to do with the level.

** Yeah, they weren't EVIL, just whiny. The EBA isn't going to let them die if they requested their assistance by going HEAAAALLP.

** Yes, leave them on the island and watch them starve to death! Because that's certainly what they deserve!

* The "Let's Dance" mission bugs me. The song has NOTHING to do with the level whatsoever. Granted, there are many other levels where the song and mission are only tangentially connected, but this one there's like... no relation at all between the song and level. Same deal with "Canned Heat". Couldn't they have found more appropriate songs to use?
* Why in every other level can the target just yell "HEEEEAAAALP!" once and have Kahn send the Agents out, but in "Without a Fight" it takes EVERYONE yelling "HEEEEAAALP!" repeatedly until the Agents finally show up? There didn't really seem to be any explanation for that other than RuleOfCool.

* One of the things that really bothered me. Why on earth do the EBA help the Carrington Sisters in "Material Girl"? It would be better if the sisters maybe learned survival techniques or how to do things for themselves, but all they do is charm animals into doing everything for them. They don't improve as people like everyone else in the game, they don't accomplish anything major, and they don't really have any serious problems - rather than "We have to find a way off this island", their problems are basically "I'm cold", "I'm hungry," "I'm hot" etc. In other words, selfish problems. And they get off the island at the end with no trouble anyway. I might be going around in circles a bit here, but it seems like they weren't really deserving of the EBA's help. They were basically spoilt rich airheads throughout the entire song and afterwards. In my opinion, the EBA should have left them stuck on the island.
