Roguelike Dungeon Minder can be a good example of well designed escort mission. The whole game is an escort mission, yet not so disappointing even despite too-dumb-to-live target.

Why did someone delete the non-video-game examples without any explanation or justification? What reason is there for assuming that this can only be a game trope?

...Wait, what the hell does exceptions mean? The stuff in that category still fits the definition of "Escort Mission".

I think it is meant to refer to escort missions that are exceptions to the rule that escort missions are horrible.

Yeah, that is a weird split pattern. Might want to bring it up in the Trope Repair Shop.

I'd still love to have that sign X-Play made to accompany their 'We HATE Escort Missions' catchphrase at least once...it's yellow, with a black crossed-circle with two people figures in it, one holding an umbrella over the other's head.
