Irritating, Aggravating, and Obnoxious Characters in Otherwise Good Games (IMO)

Yeah, yeah, I know, this is basically the character edition of this list, but I feel that a character's personality deserves to be classified in a different list entirely, as it doesn't really feel like, well, a mechanic. When I think of the word "mechanic," I think of, well, a machine, a device, an aspect of a system that doesn't carry emotional baggage. Characters do. It's what makes them characters, after all. Some, however, carry certain types of emotional and personal baggage and traits that I pretty much consider contraband. Characters with whiny, bratty voices and dialogues. Characters who are lazy and contribute so little to their cause that they might as well not even be there. Characters whose ideas of "comic relief" are horribly skewed. These and other qualities are what offset the following characters into the group of Irritating, Aggravating, and Obnoxious Characters in Otherwise Good Games... in my opinion. (note that this is also another list that I - ah, screw it, you know what I mean)
