I don't know why most of monkey island fans hate the EFMI twist. We all know there are plot holes but come on, this isn't a METAL GEAR game. Monkey Island series was made to entertain you. We don't have to go back to old games and keep ourselves busy in finding plot holes.
And hey, if Ron himself continued on producing monkey series, he would fall in such error. He said himself in SOMI:SE video that he didn't had any storyboard drawing and he simply just brainstorm ideas and program it directly which shows you he doesn't mind or care if he fell in a plot hole or story error. And that's actually funny that some people come up with a deep analysis of the characters from MI1 and MI2.
back on topic- I would like at least to hear a reference of Governor Marley. To me he was the funniest character through all the series even his figure in CMI
sorry for my bad English. just wanted to share my thoughts
