So let me put it to you again: Turbine is forcing players to make this Choice.
regardless of what choice players make, or what decision we come to, or why we come to it. We are being forced to make this Choice.
That is where the problem lies. It is a game. It's supposed to be fun and played for enjoyment, illusionary rewards and distraction from real life, I should not need to have to make those kinds of choices in a game.
