** Indeed, as one of the developers [[http://www.codeofhonor.com/blog/tough-times-on-the-road-to-starcraft recounts]] [[http://www.codeofhonor.com/blog/starcraft-orcs-in-space-go-down-in-flames on his blog]] ''Starcraft'' was initially little more than a reskin of ''VideoGame/{{WarCraft II}}'', to be bashed out to plug a gap in Blizzard's revenue stream, and was derisively referred to as "Orcs In Space". After being shut down for a while, it was reactivated when when RealTimeStrategy became the big thing. Displaying the demo at the E3 conference, the developers thought it looked like a sad joke besides Ion Storm's ''Dominion: Storm over Gift 3'', so they scrapped what they had, rebuilt it from the ground up, drove themselves like crazy for two years to make ''[=StarCraft=]'' good enough to compete and released a game lauded as the standard others would be compared against.

** Episode Six, Mission 5: ''True Colors.'' AnyoneCanDie is in full effect, with two of the most known characters [[spoiler: Fenix and Duke]] [[PlayerPunch killed by the player.]] To make it feel more cheap, see the AnticlimaxBoss entry.

* NoodleIncident: From "The Dark Templar," the sixth mission of Episode II: Overmind, it is clear that Tassadar and Kerrigan had already been acquainted prior to her infestation, though not exactly from when.[[note]]A cut scenario from the Terran campaign, "Biting the Bullet," described Kerrigan's first personal encounter with Tassadar.[[/note]] Also, Raynor somehow managed to hijack the Sons of Korhal flagship ''Hyperion'' before getting stranded on Char, and that event wasn't described in the game either.

Added DiffLines:

** It's also not particularly hard to deduce that an organization calling itself "the Confederacy" might not place much emphasis on freedom and human rights. Ditto for the Dominion.

Added DiffLines:

* StylisticSuck: Several for the ''Remastered'' release.
** Many AI shortcomings of the original game, including the terrible unit pathing, were not improved, so as to preserve the gameplay of the original as much as possible.
** Unit portraits use MouthFlaps when talking in mission briefings instead of matching the dialogue, just like the original game.
