I didn't dislike Starcraft 2, but it definitely let Kerrigan off the hook way too easily.
Eh, StarCraft isn't really inherently about karmic justice, though.

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.
