As an example I could point to I, Mengsk which was very good at balancing between the two.
    I don't get it.

    All the main characters we saw fighting were either marines or swordsmen. There were a few brief Wraith fighting scenes with (usually) unnamed pilots.

    I’d name the novel: “Shadow of Xel’Naga does not exist.” And the name of the evil commander would of course be Gabriel.
    That'd to hysterical

    I'm talking about balancing between character and plot moments in relation to combat scenes, and I, Mengsk has the pacing down pat. You get a few chapters dedicated to plot, then there's a battle (significant to the plot, of course, but a battle nonetheless), then there's another few chapters of plot and then we get another battle. And so on and so forth.

    Whether the combat scenes depict space battles with wraiths or ground battles with marines doesn't matter. The pacing should still remain the same, just like the general structure of the story.

    I guess I'm saying it matters to me. But then, maybe I just like infantry combat a lot more, and I'd rather see Wraith pilots than battlecruiser crew

    because destruction of Wraiths are more likely that of Battlecruisers in combat

    I think that's because it's more of a one person experience when talking about a wraith pilot, you can state and describe his actions without it getting too boring, a battlecruiser crew is more like the captain yelling orders and people following them.

    I still would prefer different experiences form all the levels of an army.

    If you're looking for a story about a Battlecruiser and its crew, just wait a few more months. Then, you'll not only get to experience but actually participate in the story about the crew of the Hyperion and its commander, Jim Raynor.

    Personally, I think the Terrans have received their fair share of stories. I'm just waiting for the Protoss to get their turn. It'd be a good opportunity to expand on the technology and equipment they use that can't be shown in-game (much like how some Marines carry grenade launchers and side-arms). Moreover, I think it'd be kinda cool to transpose the typical military stereotypes to the Protoss. Imagine an elite squad of Protoss warriors under the leadership of a young, maverick Praetor who's supported by a wise and senior High Templar whose sage advice acts as a rock for the Praetor to lean on. There'd also be a geeky technician who gets to play around with the latest in Protoss gadgetry and is the only guy who actually knows how to operate the team's Sentry and Observers. Then, there's the squad's resident Immortal who seems to have taken to his new body with an unnervingly pyromanic glee. And of course, there'll also be a token Dark Templar who everyone distrusts and is unneasy around. After all, not only is he the mysterious new guy, there's a millenium-old prejudice against him to boot!

    Obviously, the squad is horribly dysfunctional and much hillarity ensues.

    O hai mr peasant's RPG rendition of Taldarin, I didn't see you there!

    That really would be a good comic. I'd spend money on it. :P

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    You know what that sounds like to me?

    And that similarity was completely intentional. Hence, the giveaway word 'token'.
