Have you ever stopped to think about how strange it is that in fantasy Princesses are usually good and Queens are usually evil? Or, to be more precise, that naive, teenaged, powerless and sexually inexperienced princesses are good while intelligent, mature queens who are in control of themselves and their sexuality are evil?
Because once you do, "Oh, of course the evil queen is sexy," is not really an innocuous statement. It's a big part of the problem.
And, yes, kudos to the game for rising above the level of helpless pinup. That's definitely a good thing. But I thought she had a shirt on when I looked at the downscaled image and I was thrilled. Right now the only female troop who is (1) fully clothed and (2) whose flavor of sexiness is not a defining aspect of her character is... Hag.
When it comes to male troops, of course, there's a huge variety in terms of age and moral alignment.
absolutely fascinating use of the passive voice there.
