These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Designated Hero - The TCAF. While a government certainly would do some questionable things to their colonies to keep them in line in the face of a burgeoning revolution, no one but the colonies seem to be bothered that they destroyed the population and ecosystem of an entire planet, until they come close to the karmic retribution when Doris Egan sends the superweapon onto them.
Game Breaker - A couple of weapons and weapon combos turn this game into easy mode. To sum them up:
Scrappy Mechanic - The sub-objectives and Escort Mission overdose. The former requires a guide, but some sub-objectives are missing. The latter can cause quick Game Overs because of having to kill everything in sight.
