2. Genocide (Every RTS ever)
You may not know how the ‘Great War with the Red Nation’ started… but you know damn well how it’s going to end. Even as their army lies broken and defeated before the treads of Blue Nation tanks, you roll on. No calls for surrender… for peace.
As you push deeper into their country, you come across Red Nation workers. Defenseless, as content as can be just chopping wood. You do not ignore them, or intern them, or even rough them up a bit. No. You blow them into greasy little chunks. You raze their homes to the ground. Their town halls crumble like paper before your terrible might. Farms burn. Mines collapse. An entire people and culture, lain to waste before the rifle barrels of your unrelenting troops.
Only when every single Red Nation worker lies dead, only when every single town is made a smoking husk, only when every single person and facility capable of tying two sticks together is returned to the Earth; will your people’s blood lust be satisfied. But, hey, that victory screen is so pretty… and that little drum beat when it pops up… just tops. Who’s next?

1. Forced sexual congress (Aliens vs Predator series)
Look carefully at that picture. LOOK AT IT! What do you see? Do you see consensual intercourse? Or do you see one individual holding down a clearly unwilling participant, while another individual prepares to force his protuberance into the victim, delivering his zygote? Just what would they call that in a court of law? Hmm?
But we don’t have to ask a court of law. We can just ask Dan O’Bannon, writer of Alien.
