Ah, makes more sense :)

I'm still of the mind that if the Arbiter levels hadn't been the worse ones of Halo 2, than no one would have minded. As it was, we got "The Oracle", "Sacred Icon" and "Quarantine Zone".

The Oracle was an awesome level. Especially the banshee with Follow.

You and I will have to disagree, then :)

I think a lot of the issues I had with Halo 2 was that although it improved the types of indoor encounters from the mostly repetitious locations in CE, it did so at the expense of open and interesting outdoor segments. The improved skyboxes only made me more aware of how much less space I had to move around in. There's nothing close to the "Ark" or "Halo" in Halo 2.

Don't forget the Silent Cartographer. Multiple ways to complete a mission rocks.

Although I did explore the vast mountainous landscape of delta halo in the Scorpion, even under the lake lol

They can always make the chief at least hurt someone, or take someone hostage in a cutscene,

 and they could always take the route of "just escape, dont kill anyone" as one of those weird mix-up gameplay levels too

Of course if we end up fighting ancient humans its all moot.
