Viva Pinata

The thing that bugs me with this is, you invest a lot of time into certain animals on that thing, and then they just go and get damn well killed by another animal. An animal of lesser significance or cuteness most likely. Even if they are made of candy, it's an odd message to send to children. Though I don't think this game is really played by that many children in reality.
Anyway, it needs a quicker option to destroy the aforementioned ugly animal turning aforementioned cute animal into candy.
