* RecycledInSpace: Part 2 is an extended homage to the Vietnam War. The far-larger and more powerful GTVA is forced to fight a limited and conservative war due to political divisions and murky objectives, while the much less powerful but more ideologically convinced UEF is simply trying to hold its own and ultimately push the GTVA out by costing them enough blood. Similarly to the Vietnam War, [[GrayAndGrayMorality there is no clear-cut good guy.]]

* RecycledInSpace: Some people see Part 2 is as an extended homage to the Vietnam War. The far-larger and more powerful GTVA is forced to fight a limited and conservative war due to political divisions and murky objectives, while the much less powerful but more ideologically convinced UEF is simply trying to hold its own and ultimately push the GTVA out by costing them enough blood. Similarly to the Vietnam War, [[GrayAndGrayMorality there is no clear-cut good guy.]] The developers have stated this wasn't their intention, pointing out that the UEF is, technologically speaking, just as advanced as the GTVA, just with different focuses (hence their much weaker military).

-->'''[[WordOfGod Blue Planet Developers]]''': Trying to grasp their motives is a bit like an ant trying to figure out why a scientist is gene splicing it.

** Between missions, Levi tells a story about how he tested his Kentauroi's afterburners while the fighter [[DidntThinkThisThrough is still clamped to the docking bay]], and recalls Simms chewing him out about it. [[CassandraTruth Everybody calls bullshit]], because what idiot would do something so stupid? Not to be beaten, he concludes the story by beginning to apologize to a nearby sleeping Simms, [[NonSequiturThud causing her to start ranting at him again at the top of her lungs, still asleep, then promptly wake up by falling out of bed.]]

-->'''Indus''': That's impossible. The ''Atreus'' was engaged near Luna five minutes ago. He can't jump like that, he'll wreck his reactor, blow his own ship's guts out.\\
'''Brie''': So it's true, what they say. He's insane.\\
'''Simms''': Not insane. Reckless, relentless, and lucky. He's a gentleman psychopath.

** Also, ''Delenda Est'' to an extent, mainly because a [[http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=80146.0 leading amount of factors]] made it UnwinnableByMistake, [[spoiler: even though it's supposed to be [[UnWinnableByDesign failed in]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption the first place]].]] ([[http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=82080.0 That bug was shortly patched.]]) It doesn't help that you most often notice this during or shortly after an incredibly frustrating sequence where [[spoiler: you have to destroy all 4 main beams of two Deimos corvettes (which have the second-best anti-fighter defences of any FS2 capital ship), both of which are parked next to a number of Aeolus cruisers (which have the best anti-fighter defences of any FS2 capital ship). To make matters worse, the beams are small, hard to see, can only be fired at from a few positions and they are only 4 of the 8 beam cannons on the ship (destroying the other 4 doesn't really help, and there's no way to tell which is which other than placement).]]
