* WorldOfHam: You could rename this game "Middle-earth: Scenery-chewing Edition" and be completely accurate. Everyone, and we mean ''EVERYONE'', hams it up as if it's going out of style.

** GameplayAndStorySegregation is averted in the Good campaign of ''BFME'', in the Amon Hen mission rescuing Boromir before he is killed when protecting Merry and Pippin allows him to be used is the following missions of the campaign
* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Heroes/enemies with relations to each other have modifiers to ensure thing go 'as they should'. For instance, The Witch-king, for all his power, can barely damage Eowyn at all. For her part, her moves have a massive damage multiplier against him, almost one-shotting him. Other examples include the Balrog having positive modifiers against Gandalf, and vice-versa. Lumberers, the weakest unit in the game, have massive damage modifiers vs Ents, and even a unique quote for the situation; "The tree's moving?!...KILL IT!"

** This troper achieved it another route. [[spoiler:Turns out that an entire army of Gondor Rangers, all upgraded with fire arrows and banners so that battalions automatically replenish lost soldiers, will carve through the forces of Darkness like a hot knife through butter. Even a Nazgul stops being a concern, since they're ''very'' weak against fire attacks. By the time the Rohirrim and the Army of the Dead show up, there's not much for them to do except clean-up, which rarely results in a single loss.]]

* ArmyOfTheDead: Summoning them is the ultimate power of the Good general powers, and a level 10 skill of Aragorn. They also intervene during scripted events, led by Aragorn in both cases: the siege of Minas Tirith in ''BFME'' (both campaigns), and the siege of Rivendell in ''BFMEII'' (end of the Evil campaign).
** The dead are immune to most weapons or powers. The only ones who can really do damage to them is a fully-leveled Aragorn or a Balrog.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: The first game uses a right-click to activate powers; the second game uses a left-click. Why EA thought this change was necessary is anyone's guess.

* AdaptationExpansion: Of the Peter Jackson films. ''BFMEII'' shows the battles of Dale and Mirkwood; and features Tom Bombadil as a hero summon. The expansion pack has Barrow-Wights as an Angmar reinforcement summon.
