Default Issues that if fixed, would of made the game better

We all have our favorite games no doubt about that. But no matter how good it was, there will always be something that prevented the game from being absolutely perfect (in your opinion).

For example, I have three grudges against Dawn of War, more like technical grudges.

1) The shadowing system. It was cool for placing in stencil shadowing, but the god dam shadows were all fucked up on the buildings and objects. It looked like a mess.

2) Units shooting through terrain and walls. It made making realistic maps almost too hard and utterly pointless.

3) Units we all perpendicular to the terrain. 45 degree hill? You units will defy gravity on that slope.

So what games would you like to improve if you got the chance?

Cannot give a sex invite to people in fable 3 once they love you. Aweful for getting some weapons requirements

Everyone has a purpose, just so happens mine is more of an example to others of what NOT to do.

I know it's time to go to bed when the last post in every thread has been written by me.

Many RPGs needed some tweaking, such as more EXP or money per battle and have their encounter rates tuned up or down.

Breath of Fire 3 is a great example (I'm playing this again cause SMGAlice brought it up in another thread) of this. Money and EXP comes very slowly in some parts of the games, but you cant go 8-10 steps before a random battle where the guys are harder then the boss at the end.

Mass Effect 2 had some graphic bugs when Shepard was running, making it look a little funny. Not enough to make the game bad, but a noticeable bug.

UFC 2010 had problems with it's Career Mode, i.e. Your character forgets how to throw a leg kick if you don't practice it. Very poorly implemented.

Alpha Protocol: You can play the whole game in a stealth mode until a boss fight, then it turns into a previous gen Third person shooter. Don't have much of an idea on how to fix this but it needed fixing.

To name a few.

Connection issues on CoD: BlOps.

It's fucking horrendous.

My super psychic mind powers change youuuuuu!

The DoW games could have done with having the camera further out as its too hard to see whats going on around the current piece of action .
Thankfully there is a Mod that solves that in all DoW games and then FoK has it already anyway.
No.2 on ThatOtherGuy's OP is a point as well. Some maps were too easy others got you attacked too early. Like the Murad Swamplands map in DC; The players HQ is right on the edge of a cliff thingy so can be shot at by the enemy until the player manages to send troops all the way round and down to stop them.

Character movement in Section8 is way too slow. One of the few, if not the only, problem/s in an otherwise excellent game. And the time to get to super sprint running is too long as well.

Connection Issues, Weapons, Attachments, Lag, Hit Detection, Perks, Kill Streaks, Maps.

People call it balanced, it's not, it's just that weapons are easily identifiable as best, and unless you want to have fun, it's only balanced because you've got 3/4 UMP's, er sorry, AK74 running around every map.

Remake? You are far to nice towards that game series... Burn the living shit out of it is what I say... NO MORE COD!
