Is it just me, or do most of these examples seem to be less "Shields Are Useless" and more "Shields are not magically everything-proof." Most of the examples (especially in the Video Games section) are largely about how the shields are useful, but there are ways around it.

I'd disagree about the 4e example that shields are useless, they come in handy when those one or two points of AC/Reflex represent a dramatic decrease in how often you are hit in heavily armored builds (versus the one or two extra damage an attack from a two-handed weapon), and there's useful powers depending on them. I didn't post that, because it was too much arguing in the trope page, but I want to bring the opinion up.
