"That was a good fight. You should be commended...Psych! You're dead meat!!

"There is nothing you can say, Dominic. There is nothing you can do. For the first time in a long time, you can only see. So look well upon the fate of your friend. Look well upon my victory. Look well upon the new face of damnation. Look well upon the beginning of the Court of Karnak. And while you're at it, you should be able to see that the cause and outcome of this war were all thanks to you."

Way To Go, Serge: It will eventually turn out that, for a minimum of the first sixty percent of the game, you were actually being manipulated by the forces of evil into doing their sinister bidding for them. In extreme cases this may go as high as 90%. The clear implication is that it would have been better to not get involved in the first place.
Sorry, but I don't see any patriotism here. All I see is a psycho who latched on to an excuse to kill people, and who's so stupid he doesn't realize he's being used by Luthor.
