I suddenly feel the need to defend myself. It's not that TNO and Deionarra are Shakespeare material in the sense of the mastery over poetic forms or language, but in the way their "love story" unfolds as an idea. Romeo and Juliet's is cliche, even Shakespeare himself said that in A Midsummer Night's Dream where he parodies R&J. The context of it is as straightforward as they come, a copy of a copy of a copy, going all the way back to Ovid's Pyramus and Thysbe. Gaming needs its little triumphs and we should acknowledge them.
