[b][u]***SPOILER ALERT***[/u][/b] I just beat the game. What. The. Hell. Was. That. After 5 goddamn games, you're told that everything you've done for the past few centuries was irrelevant, and then you just hand the keys to the planet over to a megalomaniac. And then you are unceremoniously killed. Cut to credits. What the actual hell. The ending of this game is downright nihilistic and just goddamn depressing. It's message is that Humanity is fundamentally too flawed to ever be anything more than a band of warring, ignorant animals, that we're destined to either never mature as a species, or die out, and that our only salvation is through becoming slaves to 'higher' beings. Screw that. That's the exact opposite of the message these games have been carrying this whole time. It basically takes the last 2 minutes of the entire series to say "Oh yeah... all that freedom stuff you were going on about this whole time? Yeah, that's all bull. Kthxbye." I don't know what the developers were aiming for, but it just comes off as a giant middle finger to the fans from where I'm sitting...
