I have been passing the time before Delta Rising by starting a Romulan character and going through story missions with her. I just hit a major road block in the form of the Mind Games mission.
Quite simply put, I absolutely refuse to mutilate an innocent (and attractive) Romulan woman to death with Borg implants, period. I struggled with it in the course of the mission, found no way around it, and finally hit the "beam out" button. I cannot finish that mission but without it, my story progress and in-character continuity is destroyed. Basically, this mission kills my character because it forces her to go in directions that are absolutely beyond the pale. I might as well delete her at this point and say she killed herself to save that woman.
This is like Devide et Impera all over again, where we're railroaded into committing atrocities. Except with that I could at least say to myself "I ALWAYS set to stun and I'm not breaking that policy here, the game just doesn't have a mechanic for stun", you directly and explicitly are expected to torture a woman to death in this mission. I refuse. My character might not have a choice, but I do. I'll quit the game first.
My immersion with the character and interest in continuing with her is severely shaken by this.
