In fact it's frequently about karmic injustice. Brood War especially is all about totally wanton and unrighteous retribution. Which I think is part of why A LOT of people don't like it.

My issue with SC2 and Kerrigan was more that she was portrayed as being somewhat righteous and principled in a way she never has been. They really boiled her down to a much more simple moral dichotomy and involved some really lousy unwarranted false equivalency.
I'm not saying it's about karmic justice. More that the player is expected to sympathize with Kerrigan without being given enough reason to actually do so. In Brood War, she was straight up evil, and fulfilled that role quite well.
See WoW in a way you've never imagined it.
