Or maybe the CEO of Chick-fil-A just believes in the sanctity of marriage which is defined as being between a man and woman. It doesn't meant he hates gay people. You are exuding reverse bigotry, pulling the "IF YOU'RE NOT FOR US, YOU'RE AGAINST US" card.
I quit XIII at about chapter 10 or so. I think I had the exact opposite reaction. I was into the story and most of the characters, but I don't like the combat system at all. The whole paradigm shifting while teh AI plays for you doesn't do it for me.
Regardless of what I just wrote, I picked up XIII-2 on sale this week for $15 because I think the lesser amount of characters along with the pokemon like aspect of collecting creatures appeals to me. I just watched the ending to XIII on youtube instead of ever thinking about finishing that game. It might be awhile before I ever get to playing XIII-2 though, it is pretty far down my backlog of games.
