One does not simply "kill" a character in Kingdom Hearts, I'm afraid. :P. Which bothers me as well, to be honest. I understand the concept, but it's taking the gravity away from every emotional situation.

Generally, a trailer will cause more excitement when shown to a wider amount of people, but apparently, Square's cunning strategy of making people less hyped for the game is something beyond the average person's perception.
I kind of hope not. Given that the movie already overly simplified/sugar-coated the contact that First Nations had with European settlers, having it abridged and made even more fanciful with Kingdom Hearts whimsy would do a great disservice to what is still a contentious issue.
Someone made the argument to me that Bioshock was one of the signs of games becoming art and not just entertainment, and I think that holds true. It's worth studying for the political, ethical, and philosophical themes it puts forward, perhaps being even more relevant now that select groups of people are starting to think that Ayn Rand was onto something.
