Yow, Valkyria Chronicles has a lot of broken aesop. Does this game really have that many broken themes, or does someone just hate the game?

In either case, maybe we can consolidate the overabundant examples?

  • In X and Y, after the final battle against Lysandre and Team Flare, your rival shows up to give a lecture on how you can't really say the villain was wrong or right, and that they should try to find a middle ground between their beliefs and his. His beliefs? - he wanted to exterminate all life in the Kalos region because it wasn't beautiful enough.

the example not explains why the story contradicts the moral in question. This probably will be easy to explain, however.

  • Part of the debate on Spec Ops: The Line's ultimate You Bastard message is the scene that the game uses to insult the player on: a sequence where white phosphorous is deployed on enemies, and it turns out the player just killed a bunch of civilians. The game gets to the point where the loading screens directly insult the player for this. Critics say that the game forces you into that path, but fans and the developers say that shutting the game off was a choice.
    • That's right, people: they expect you to buy a game just so you can not play it, and if you don't, you're a monster.

Of the main Broken Aesop page: "Important Note: As tempting it may be, please do not add meta-fictional examples (which are more along the lines of a Clueless Aesop). Only add examples where the aesop is broken within the narrative itself."
