In Response To: Favorite story within the universe? (Postmortem)

: So this just kind of led to me wondering which specific story arcs within
: this widespread universe appeal to people. Personally, my second favorite
: is Human Weakness, from Halo Legends. I love the real psychological
: development going on there, and the basic arc of Cortana's fight against
: the Gravemind.

Halo: Evolutions, not Legends.
Of course, someone else will have pointed this out by the time I post this.

And I agree. It's also one of my favorites.

: So what's yours? :)

I'm thinking.
Now that I've had sufficient time to ponder the question, I would have to say that my favorite arc has been the Halo trilogy (I think it needs no other name).

The thing that appeals to me most about the original trilogy was how grounded it was. There were a few things that didn't work, but the trilogy's scope was the right size. It was epic, sweeping space opera, but it never felt overblown or pretentious. We were trekking through the majestic ruins of a dead civilization, and those ruins were always impressive, but in the right way.
