    Some folks i know showed me this post on the bioware forum, which was basically poking fun at the two towers. Claiming it was nothing more than a badly run D&D session (all in good fun of course).

    Example: The Scene where Lagolas surfs down the stairs on a sheild.

    "DM: Aragorn and Gimli are blown to the ground behind the wall, taking 2d6 points of falling damage. Legolas, you are still on your feet on top of the wall.
    PC2: Are the stairs still up?
    DM: Yes, the stairs are still standing. A horde of orcs is now pressing through the gap in the wall.
    PC1: I jump to my feet, pick up my sword, and charge the orcs.
    DM: That's two move-equivalents, so the charge will take place next round. Legolas?
    PC2: I run down the stairs to engage the orcs.
    DM: The stairs are steep. It will take you two rounds to run down them.
    PC2: Wait, is there any equipment lying around?
    DM: (scratches head) I guess there are some shields and spears lying around from the dead men-at-arms ...
    PC2: Dude! I jump on a shield and SURF down the wall, firing my bow as a go!
    PC3: Dude.
    DM: No way.
    PC2: But I took Mounted Combat, and haven't gotten to use it yet! Come on, at least let me make a balance check!
    DM: (rolls eyes) OK, make a balance check (setting the DC at 30).
    PC2: NATURAL 20! That's like, what, a 42 with modifiers!
    DM: (shakes head), Ok, you successfully jump on the shield, and are surfing it down the stairs ...
    PC2: I rapid shot the closest orc while I'm surfing!
    PC3: (mumbles) Bloody twink elven archers!"

    There's more and it's all just as good.
