GIRLS CAUSE TROUBLE
Most overused in: Prince Of Persia, Resident Evil 4, Dead Space.
Whether it's because they get kidnapped, hold some lost secret, or just happen to be really pretty; if there's a women involved, then all the
bloodshed and carnage will be over them.
This isn't sexist, it's just basic game design. Who would you rather risk life and limb for: a beautiful girl (who's likely to be, you know, grateful once you've rescued her) or a big hairy man? Exactly.
