this is nitpicking but a good point as straying away from the 'script' often doesn't feel right and in many cases is just waffle. It bothers me where the essence of the chosen dialogue option isn't expressed such as the example where "prepare to be boarded!" alone would have sufficed. I liked how CMI was tighter with this and stuck more to the script and what you chose guybrush to say. I think this is an important gameplay element. 'Off-script' jokes can always be added in a followup sentence after the main dialogue choice. Perfect example is (can't remember exact but something like):
Dialogue choice: "back in grade-school they used to call me the DART master!"
Guybrush says: "back in grade-school they used to call me the DART master! or something that rhymed with that anyway
