Merry and Pippin were about the most underused characters in this campaign. I imagine the two of them sat on the couch playing XBox, and if they were needed for anything they would shout their actions over their shoulder without looking away from the TV. Now that I’ve come to this point, it would have been nice to have a gag where (during some tense or serious moment) the two of them were playing something like Halo 2 and their chatter was distracting the roleplaying. Ah well. Maybe I’ll go back and add it once the story is over.
