** One of the final missions, "Light My Pyre". The mission begins with a highly annoying car chase that wouldn't be so bad, except you have to escort [[TheLoad Lance]], who is riding a motorcycle and seems to enjoy [[StopHelpingMe getting in your way (sometimes, even in your line of fire) and getting himself killed, which is a Game Over.]] Then, you have to fight through a small army of heavily armed, respawning goons to get around the back of a building and through a door. THEN, you have to fight [[spoiler: Armando Mendez]], who is wielding a flamethrower. If that weren't enough, you're forced to fight him in a disorienting top-down perspective -- not to mention, his goons storm in and fight you, as if a man setting you on fire with a flamethrower wasn't enough. (This part is made almost laughably easy [[GameBreaker if you have a minigun with you]], but if you don't...) And if you die? Back to the beginning. And if you do finish it? You find that [[spoiler: Louise, the woman you went through all this hell to save, is dead.]] [[SarcasmMode What fun!]]

** Another funny moment is when you pass the mission "Domo Arigato Domestoboto", Armando shoots his robot, Domestobot (which looks like {{Nintendo}}'s VideoGame/RoboticOperatingBuddy {{pastiche}}), unaware that it was controlled by Vic.
