Here's the mission list to the game:
You fight in three missions in B7R:
#3 The Round Table
#16 The Demon of the Round Table
It seems obvious that these are meant to mark the three acts of the story since they are each about 6-7 missions apart and provide occasions for your guy to become yet another demon-pilot (how original). And to be honest it seems like a cop-out in terms of story-telling difficulty because it's the same map with some minor adjustments, the repetition of it got tedious for me because there was nothing interesting about the desolate mountainous map whatsoever apart from the fact that the coastline is rounded like the round-table, get it? I do, because IT'S SO DAMN OBVIOUS!
I mean there were so many other ways they could have gone with this, but instead of a palette swapped sprite like in the old days, we get a palette swapped map and a stilted way to divide up the storyline. I mean come on, this game had WAAAY better dialogue than 5 but it just seems lazy to use the same place (which despite all the damn hype made over it in the briefings and cutscenes I still don't get a lesser fuck about because the map is just boring and is just another bird-cage for nothing but Air to Air combat...huhuhuhuh I made a reference thar ). I got so sick of everyone talking about how big of a deal this place is and being stuck in a bunch of lack-luster dogfights that were just lengthy and tedious. If anything, the boss-fight in Zero was way better and to be honest, B7R just seems like an appendage to the story that could have happened anywhere else the writers chose. But I suppose they were all gung-ho about the whole European folklore is cool! Let's make ALL the King Arthur references >3>!!! and just HAD to make an allusion to the round table being a big deal.
I don't know... I just thought it was annoying how much all the characters cared about a landmass that really was boring to look at, contributed nothing to the game play (Idk do YOU remember any sams or aa guns because I don't...), and was a redundancy that weakened the dramatic progression and the subtlety of the story's character arcs.
Squidward = Me
Spongebob = ACZ Characters
