Not sure if comparing to bulk physical goods (e.g., lumber, food, etc.) is an apt analogy for digital goods... but I see what you are getting at.
Ultimately, any frustration stems from the fact that if you bought the second piece of content (Sapienza) there was no turning back from buying them all individually (i.e., buying the total package) without losing even more money. I didn't even know about the bonus missions and the cost difference until after the 3rd content drop.
It would have been nice if there were additional options to buy everything at various points in the season. I understand the slight difference in pricing from buying them all separately compared to all at once and I'm okay with that... However, in my opinion, IO should have unlocked the bonus missions for anyone that bought everything regardless of format. Given how often it is on sale, I am not even sure that IO realizes that people that bought each piece of content at each release will end up getting burned by $10-15 (depending on how much they charge for the bonus missions).
Absolutely loved Hitman, but I will likely wait until Season 2's total release before buying anything this time around. Just my humble opinion.
Really frustrating -- If you buy all the content piecemeal (which I did from launch) you pay $5 more than someone who bought it bulk now. Also, they plan to charge for the bonus missions, so likely you will end up paying $15 more in total... Seems like a punishment for those that jumped on the wagon early; especially considering there have been multiple sales of the complete package for around $40.
I think they should have cut the Vader castle scene. It felt unnecessary. I think his inclusion at the end was great and would have been more powerful had he not made an appearance to that point.
Also, I wish they would have had the Mon Cal ship beam the plans to Princess Leia's ship. I didn't like the fact that she was present for the suicide mission. The scene could have been nearly identical, but had Vader's ship intercept the transmission beamed out as Vader is cutting down the Rebels. Then you cut to Leia and Vader's ship jumps to pursuit... Opening scene of a New Hope.
