Chew on this!
(Oral Fixations) Johnson is 'castrated' and no longer chews on a cigar.

Could happen to Keyes as well, but Johnson would be the most hurt by it. Aye.

'kill me!'
(Scenes) Flood scene where obvious former 'buddy' human is now a flood, and the turmoil as other soldier(s) or MC realize they have to kill him/her. Cherry on top is that flood hasn't completely subsumed personality, so creature's last shreds of humanity come out and plead for help/quick-death.

According to the rules, this entry is fine, because even though something similar occurs with Keyes and MC, the storyline is above reproach. If they pour on the schmaltz (ala Matrix death scenes), it'll suck.

(Dialogue) here's a few:

1 - Cortana calls MC "John" in a 'tender' moment.

2 - You see virtual 'tears' as Cortana realizes MC is going on a suicide mission or realizes she might not ever see him again due to a hard choice she has to make.

3 - MC tries to 'touch' Cortana during same 'tender' moment.

Nicely done, would be better if it was seperated out, but they all fall under the same theme, so OK

Will the convenant just be another dark menace?
(Plot) Enemy within, grown from our own stock, just hundreds of decades ahead of ourselves?

Not sure where this is going. Are you suggesting that more of the halo-verse storyline will be revealed? Perhaps who the Reclaimers are and where the Covenant actually came from?

Wooden or CG props are not acceptable...
(Props) When props are used, they should look real. I'm not talking about having the MC hold a wooden toy, and we are to use our imagination, I'm thinking metallic, right reflection, good weight.

This is an interesting point. Even TV series like Stargate, have realistic looking weapons. The alien weapons have kick and can cause as much damage as we would expect. So including non-wooden, high-powered toys would be an awesome idea.
MC holds up first *real* BR... to the obvious groans of tell-tale plastic sheen. :(

Doom the movie showed us FPS on the big screen
(Other games) Will we see FPS camera angles? We can only hope that the flop that is Doom the movie, does not carry over into the Halo universe.

Cortana is not a cheap suit...
(Computer Graphics) Creating Cortana as merely a hollow, cartoon-like character will not approach the level of maturity that this character has. She has developed in hundreds of hours of gameplay for millions world-wide, and simply to make her a cartoon character will lose the nature of who and what she is.

So the question remains: Person in a suit, with all the nuances and movements of a person, or a complete CG being?
Even is she's a 'real person' it may backfire. Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell comes to mind.

Master Chief is the man.
(Actor) And his voice work won't be recognized if done by any other actor.

Interesting, however, this is a moot point if they never show the face of MC.
As an afterthought. What if all the original voice actors were used, and they got pretty faces to merely act (with voiceover)? Hmmm....
