I was young when I played that game and the ending was a huge anticlimactic let down to me at the time. I wanted the fairy tale so to speak. But fairy tales quckly becomes boring, while unexpected endings becomes interesting.

Another ending I adore is the The hunt for the holy grail by Monty python. It is absurdly nonsensical though which mi2 isn't. It is anticlimactic in a way but still let the story carry on.

Do you have a flair for anticlimaxes Ron? Or just for the unexpected?
