The parts that got to me were:
A) In chapter 2, when no matter how many times you say "no", she looks at you with weird eyes and a pouty face and uses a weird voice to keep insisting. That's manipulative, demeaning and forceful. I don't understand why because it's a female doing it people think it's "cute" while if a man did it to a woman it would be considered abuse. I seriously wanted to smash her through the screen at that time.
B) After she's back to normal, the way she speaks to Guybrush is so... "I knew it all". Either it's true and she didn't warn him in any way, or it's not and she's just showing off. Either way it doesn't show her in a good light.
That's the two things that really annoyed me, and she isn't poxed for either. She's her normal self.
In contrast Morgan, even though she ends up betraying Guybrush, has been more honest and straighforward. She tells her from the start that she was sent after him, and that she's his fan. She does honour her contract but considering the position she was in, either way she would have been betraying someone.
I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of Morgan, although I do like her, but I think she did make Elaine look very bad in comparison. It seems to me that was the point. Morgan was what Elaine never seemed to be (looking up to Guybrush, etc) and human LeChuck had traits Guybrush doesn't have either (strength for instance).
I guess the story's point is "even when they were away from each other and with people we were/appeared better, their couple survived" or something like that.
