You feel like you've been given the first three chapters of a story, a story that you really would have liked to see to its conclusion, but either a) it's on a whole different set of rails now, or b) while you ''do'' see it to its conclusion, it ignores the intriguing possibilities you'd hoped to see. Note that this does not include those plots/ideas you dislike in an otherwise well-written story/well-made game/etc.

Compare AbortedArc and DarthWiki/WorseThanItSounds. Not to be confused with OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, where the thing you would have liked to see ''did'' happen but only implicitly (they never actually showed it). Often results in AlternateContinuity FanficFuel. For this applying solely to characters ''in'' the plot, see TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter.

Has nothing to do with IntendedAudienceReaction, otherwise known as TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste.

''[[Administrivia/ExampleSectionectomy No examples, please]]. This easily overlaps with WhatCouldHaveBeen, as well as it also being a matter of personal tastes for some, and examples could easily get excessive.''
