Is it really bad writing? Or is it comic phrase implemented in a way that wasn't recieved particularly well by those who couldn't tell the difference of a bad voice actor and bad writing?
It seems, so many rpg's (and games in general) have alot of these moments but the voice actors do a better job -today- at presenting them, thus less room for a critical evaluation of chancing a "Bad writing" reception (even though it was really bad voice acting and not bad writing).
Lol the paladin thing? No. It wasn't the writing, or the voice acting. It was the question itself.
The entire Ultima series had a long series of games, and dealing with learning about "virtue" was a big focus of it. One of your primary allies throughout the whole series was also the Paladin Dupre, who had tragically sacrificed his own life in the previous game to advance your quest.
So the question was basically a giant fat insult to all long term fans of the series. It horribly disrespected the lore, and one of the key characters of the games. Spoony took it very poorly cause if you watch his videos he explains why the Ultima series had a very big emotional place in his life. So to him this was literally taking a dump on one of the most important pieces of his childhood.
