I never much liked most of the unit redesigns that happened from SC1 to SC2, but the archon redesign was always one of the ones that made the least sense to me. Two templars fuse into a being of pure energy, sacrificing themselves. In SC1, that was basically what it was, a ball of energy, and you could only vaguely discern a figure within the ball of energy. In SC2, it's a protoss unit wearing armor, face visible, but admittedly still with a gassy cloud of blue around him.
And in this cinematic, it's literally just a floating guy in armor.
Like others have mentioned, I miss more the cinematics of two country hicks driving a truck and running over a zergling. The ballet stuff in modern blizzard cinematics wears thin.
