haha...that last one always gets me, in RPG's. On one hand, youre in the last part of the game - clearly, only your squad is gonna save shit - and townspeople still wanan charge you out the ass, like dirty capitalistic pigs.

But then, you commit like 1,000 counts of attempted B&E throughout the course of said game, so it basically breaks even.
