Lord British Postulate is when the player can kill a seemingly invincible NPC; it's nothing to do with making an unwinnable situation winnable.

'Unwinnable' is a gameplay state in which, while the game has not yet ended, it is completely impossible for the player to finish the game. Players who have reached this point have only two options: reload a previous save--in the fortunate situations where this is possible, or start the game anew--for the much more unfortunate situations where it is not.

This is also known as a "walking dead" state.

This type has been known to prompt a BigNo from frustrated gamers, and if the instance is the result of particularly {{egregious}}ly [[TheyJustDidntCare bad programming]], it may result in an InternetBacklash.
