he's not that great of a hero. just saying. flame away.
master chief is overrated.
And that is his appeal. Making him seem only mildly interesting is what immerses the character into the story. Having a playable protagonist with a colorful, vibrant personality provides for a sort of disconnect to the story for the player. Having Master Chief just be a silent-type character makes it all the easier for the player to invent his personality, and thus step into his MJOLNIR boots.
I've always liked Master Chief (much more after I read Fall of Reach) and I would like to see him in more games. I could liken him to the character in your avatar- like Snake, he is a born soldier; he follows orders, he excels in combat and if it came to it, would be more than willing to lay down his life to accomplish his mission.
