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

I don't think it is people following the notion of "dark is good" that are creating problems, though. Even if they made Halo 4 lighthearted and more humorous it would not have made up for the problems. You could still have Spartans that are force multipliers, intelligent UNSC leadership, a logically presented explanation of the Covenant splinter faction, and an intelligently approached Didact who could have been treated with dignity while maintaining an air of nobility and "for the greater good" about him.

It isn't that 343i made the overall story darker, it's that the only seem to have done it to hide the fact that they don't know where they are going. whatever framework they had set up for the Reclaimer trilogy appears to not have survived first contact.
