>The story basically turned into an SJW's wet dream
Not sure we're talking about the same game. There wasn't some evil empire colonizing the new world. You had a few towns, but nobody went further than the great Trumpian wall that kept anybody from further exploring. You're fighting a military force sure, but they're not trying to colonize... they just want to resurrect Gaia, and even then - as soon as they get the hint that Gaia is a destructive force, rather than a benevolent one, they turn on their General and stage a mutiny - joining Justin's side. The closest I saw to an SJW narrative was Rapp and Milda being prejudiced against each other, but eventually learning to get along and appreciate each other. And Milda abandons your party to go fuck a cow the moment you get back to her village. So it's not like that little lesson has much of a chance to get hammered home.
