Like any hero, he should reflect on the death of his enemy and wish it didn't have to come to this, which the first movie got right, except it shouldn't have been fricking Sam who offed Megs.
The way the game ended was much better. First he beat Megatron and then... Personally I prefer it when Optimus is kicking ass and taking faces. It makes the Decepticons seems so much more evil. Here's a guy who has shown immense compassion to the human race, treating them as equals and sacrificing himself to protect them. But when he reacts so violently toward the Decepticons it tells me he's seen the horrible things they're capable of and how dangerous they can be when left unchallenged. Kinda like what makes the Joker a great villain. He's able to bring out the worst in Batman.
Good stuff, good stuff.
I also like the ROTF ending, the game was great and the story in it as well. At the end of the Decepticon campaign The Fallen turns on Megatron, when I first saw that I thought that The Fallen thought Megatron was also a Prime. Since Optimus said something like "you left me no choice brother" in the first movie. I also really like that it was pushed forward that Megatron was trying to save Cybertron and not be a mindless villain who just wanted to troll and kill others.
It's not that I hate the movies, they're decent movies ... But do we really need Wheelie humping someone's leg, Jetfire farting, closeups of a metallic tail coming from Alice's backside, etc? I have no problem with an increase in popularaity, unless it's popular for the same reason Jersey Shore is popular haha. We all know the movies aren't perfect, but they're entertaining. My problem is with Bay doing the same thing over and over claiming this is what the fandom wants. I'm sorry, but most fans would rather see a High Moon scripted movie than a Bay film any day of the week. But I do agree, things like death theats against Bay for flames on Prime, etc are over the top. All fandoms have extremes on both sides. Ours has Bay haters, Bay lovers and those in the middle. But we all have one thing in common, we love our franchise and want the best for it.
