Really? Do you think Andrew Ryan's speech in which he explains pretty much everything that has happened in the game up to that point and starts shouting the main theme of the game at you several times is is a brilliant and subtle moment in the history video game storytelling?thats why it stands out. also one speech doesnt make whole game heavy handed. the speech section was awesome
It's not the only heavyhanded moment in the game, it's just the most heavyhanded moment. The speech was awful to say the least. Having a character explain in detail what's going on in a story and how you should feel about it is a sign of extremely poor writing.
