** I think what sunk the Shaundi storyline was losing ElizaDushku and replacing her with a generic voice. Eliza Dushku has a recognizable voice due to her accent, and can play damaged hard-asses very well (see [[BuffyTheVampireSlayer Faith]] or [[{{Dollhouse}} Future Echo]] for the best examples). Without Eliza Dushku, she just isn't Shaundi.

** Her quitting drugs may have had something to do with it. Everyone knows that smoking cigarettes deepens your voice (I'm no expert on drugs, but I assume marijuana does the same). I haven't played Saint's Row 2, but I have heard Eliza Dusku's voice and assuming she used her natural voice it's low and raspy like a typical stoner. Shaundi stops smoking weed and her voice eventually repairs itself. A similar thing happened to Don Messick, Scooby Doo's original voice actor. He stopped smoking several years before he died and as a result, he lost the gruffness in his voice required to perform Scooby's voice.

** Because she changed and clearly was filling in Johnny Gat's role. And they probably didn't feel the need to have a sound-a-like do her voice. Not everyone played Saint's Row 2.

** Explained and/or inferred in one of the optional audio logs you can collect in Saints Row IV: the amount of effort she needed to put into the show was a contributing factor to being less of a party girl and more a serious person. Basically, the show came before her personality shift.

* I don't get how Shaundi and Viola being found in the wreckage of the Magarac Statue is supposed to make people believe that the Saints bombed it, rather than one of their enemies. I mean, anyone with half a working brain can tell the Saints, for all their flaws, aren't fanatical enough to use their own as suicide bombers.

** With STAG's influence and presence, it probably got spun into a situation where STAG's apparent defense of the statue lead to the bombs being detonated prematurely rather than risk being disarmed.
