Admittedly it's been a very long time since I've played it, so there are likely good (and bad) elements of the original that I've just plain forgotten.
Originally some of Sarah's egregious acts in Heart (killing Lassara) Weren't there. Hell they would have interacted more and lassarra would have become a friend. They should have focused on making Kerrigan penitent. Hell I posted an outline earlier of how I think heart should have gone. It would have emphasized her inner turmoil and desire to atone for her crimes.

In some ways SC2 was an attempt to tell an epic story and for that I can't fault them. There are tons of thins you can lampoon about Brood War for instance. Fanatic Templar and Drake Clawfang both lampoon SC2 and call out it's flaws....but they're willing to turn the lens on BW too. All too often a lot of people try to avoid doing this and treat brood war as some gem.
