    I didn't find Maria's line cheesy at all. The reason why she said it made sense to me.

    I guess they don't sound as weird when you write them like that. But you all played it, you know how it sounds when they talk in the sanctuary, weird silences and constant shouting

    I think they intentionally didn't think of making it original or clever. They just made her say what they'd think his mother might say at such a time, regardless of how unoriginal or cheesy it was. At such times she wouldn't have worried about it, so neither should the writers.

    Let us remember that we're all in the animus too... Remember, sometimes the animus has trouble translating?

    Ah come on why are you trying to explain the obviously bad writing with something else... you sound like ubisoft when they accuse animus of every glitch in the game

    Brotherhood's animus Dialogue was a bit dramatic, brotherhood's modern day dialogue was PERFECT. Revelations had a darker tone, but better all-around writing, for both modern and animus. Though technically we hear all the modern stuff FROM the animus.

    Those lines are good lines...

    suppose you think that 'With great power, comes great responsibility' is cheesy also.

    I liked the Desmond/Lucy stuff. Sure, some of it was a bit corny, but they did a nice job giving those two some chemistry so it came off as believable that Desmond was a little smitten with her (possibly the other way around as well but I guess we'll never know). Most games would have just put in a lot of sexual innuendo which would have been far cheesier or just had them talk about the technical stuff all the time ("Go pull that lever, now stand over there").

    Maria's line never really bothered me, it kinda felt like a throwback to the Godfather movies. There was one female character in one of them that said something similar but I can't remember who. It felt fitting with the whole Italian revenge plot.

    Exactly. Sometimes things ARE dramatic, and require dramatic wording. Go get 'em son would have seemed stranger, no?

    I think it's culture differences. Dejan507, maybe you are outside the US, but that's how people talk over here. Lol, it's half-assed sarcasm and everyone tries to one up everyone else. So to a foreigner it may seem strange, but that's what American conversation sounds like.
