That was a nice interview, thanks.

I'm not sure on the whole "pausing Mileena to create appreciation" thing, but I'm ok if that's what they're going with. I'm somewhat indifferent to her presence / absence. Rambo however feels out of place, but let's see how they did his integration in the game.

The thing is, all those horror and action movie icons are what inspired the Mortal Kombat series by Boon and Tobias back in the day. Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger, Terminator, RoboCop, Rambo, all of them. The MK series started after Boon and Tobias wanted to make a game based on Jean Claude Van Damme's movie Bloodsport, and Van Damme's character became the base for Johnny Cage. That's why Johnny in MK1 is with the short black martial arts pants with the red belt, rather than his more common black and blue pants. Also, Predator for example, was their inspiration behind the Cyborg Ninjas, Cyrax and Sektor, with the helmets and dreads.

At the end of the day, all of those guests have a huge integral part in the existence of MK, and while some people claim that they don't wanna see guest characters unless except someone like Spawn, we can't ignore the impact that they had on the series. And when you see the sales that those guest characters get, you can clearly see that the vast majority of players love them and wanna play as them. That's why they are belong there.

As for Mileena, it seems that this is what they were planning all along, it was just an experiment on their part, in a good way of course.
