Unfortunately we're in the era of "mature" shows (Off-Topic)

These days everything has to be dark and gritty to "make it more realistic". I think that is bleeding into our video games too, that's why you get a Didact that isn't anything like the previous descriptions of him (history is written by the victors and it's wrong in real life, so it must be that way in a video game!) and incompetent UNSC leadership (people are flawed so it's more real!).

Not to say that there is anything wrong with dark and gritty stories. I really enjoyed The Man in the High Castle and felt that those elements fit that story very well. It fits what you would expect if the Nazi's won WWII. The problem I see is that everyone is following the fad even when it doesn't really fit the story very well.
