As another fan of the RTS games, I definitely agree with you, Kylenne. When I first started WoW in mid-BC, I thought that Kael would be the faction leader of the Blood Elves. Imagine my surprise when I traveled to Silvermoon, saw some random dude in the leader spot, and then after a Google search I learned he was a raid boss. Huh? Also, Illidan always seemed more like an anti-hero than a villain to me. Sure, he consumed the skull of Gul'dan, was corrupted, yada yada yada...but he used that power to kill a major Burning Legion lieutenant in WC3. He seemed like he was someone that basically wanted to do the right thing, but was corrupted by his addiction to magic, heartbroken from Tyrande's rejection of him, etc. Again, that seems more like anti-hero material, and having him as a raid boss seemed contrived after seeing his character develop in WC3. I also found Anub'arak's unceremonious destruction in Wotlk rather ironic, since for most of TFT I used him more than I used Arthas (in fact, first thing I did with Arthas was to max out Death Coil just so I could heal Anub, haha). Here's to hoping future heroes/villains from the RTS games - the few that are left, anyway - are given better treatment.
