It's an FPS, dude, not a CYOA. How much meaningful choice did DOOM have, or COD?
(SO:tL was the "exception" that proves the rule- it was still over 99% rails)
Yes, but DOOM never pretended to be meaningful and artistic.
You're right, the plot to DOOM is literally "John, you must fight the demons!". However most "modern" FPSs do offer plot (and no choice) - they're supposed to be action movies with (IRL) skill checks in the middle.
Considering the original doom was also made as a bet along the lines of 'bet we can't make a game using this engine!'  So..... yeah.

On the topic of the actual refund program, dear god thank you.  So many games I've bought recently that claim I can run them fine who won't actually play... time to make a massive list and see if I can get refunds on them all dispite being bought a long time ago since 'I didn't know the refund system existed, but it'd be swell if you could...'

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

The main character's personality or lack thereof also comes into play when they're not only the main thing that has carried over from the first game to the sequel but also apparently some kind of messianic figure; that whole part of the Half-Life 2 plotline kind of reminds me of the Adventure Time episode where the goblins made an inanimate statue their king, it's also sort of reminiscent of The Life of Brian, but it doesn't work when played straight though, it only works in a comedy.

You clearly have a lot to say about this game. Perhaps you should start a thread for it? Or write a game review on Steam, or on a blog?
