* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' has a heroic dream that can never happen: Conner Kenway's dream of saving his tribe and creating a true and just world rather than just taking it as it is. Everyone around him knows that the goal is impossible given the flaws of men and the greed of others. In the end, he does many great deeds in the name of truth and freedom, helping the colonists win TheAmericanRevolution and turning the war against the Templars back in the assassins's favor, but this did not save his people or create the society he wanted. He still fought for his dream to the end of his life, but in the end, his dream was no closer to fruition than before.
