Protagonist or Antagonist?

Due to the rather interesting situation created by the show, it is disputed whether Shinn or Kira Yamato should be considered the protagonist of Gundam SEED Destiny. This question is handled on a game-to-game basis: games like Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Gundam and SD Gundam G Generation Wars consider Shinn the main character (with the latter going so far as to label Kira the primary antagonist), while Super Robot Wars Scramble Commander the 2nd and Super Robot Wars K treat Kira as the protagonist.
Super Robot Wars Z resolves this issue by splitting the game's cast in half: one half, consisting of characters such as Amuro Ray, Kouji Kabuto, Kappei Jin, and Loran Cehack, supports Shinn and the Minerva, while the other half, including Roger Smith, Garrod Ran, Renton Thurston, and Ryouma Nagare, supports Kira and the Archangel. This ultimately results in a scenario where the two teams fight each other. Afterwards, ZEUTH decides to side with the Archangel and, unless certain conditions are met, Shinn and the Minerva become enemies until the final episodes of the game. Shinn's Destiny Gundam appears on SRWZ's boxart, however, implying that he is considered the overall protagonist of SEED Destiny.
