that's been carried on to ToMI is that thing where you're given sentence choices and when you pick one, the character doesn't exactly say that sentence, but rather starts a conversation about the idea that the chosen sentence represents. You can see in the video, the player selects "prepare to be boarded" but guybrush starts talking with "heave to..." and all that. I don't know why this has become the norm in games that have convo trees. When I choose a sentence I expect to hear the character say it, if not only to assure myself that i actually DID choose that sentence and my hand didn't slip or something, but mostly because it just makes sense. Am I the only one who's bothered by this?
Also, doesn't the captain's shirt remind you of Prince Alexander from 'king's quest 6'?
Now I think people are nitpicking just a little too much. Sometimes this method of dialog can be used for a comedic effect. It was present in MI2 as well.
