How about protection missions? I mean, my character has big guns and lots of ammo, and yet my hopes of passing a mission rests firmly on the shoulders of a little girl with no weapons and no ammo passing an area the size of a football stadium filled with zombies?
I could mop the floor with zombies, but I am forced to navagate an unarmed little girl into some of the most intricate and dangerous territory in the game just to have her get me a coin or jewel that I need to pass through. Worse still, I have to take the little brat with me and make sure she stays alive! What ever happened to "you don't have to be the fastest, just faster than the slowest".
