Prompted by senji's "this day in history" post...

I was reading about the Ottoman commander in the Battle of Vienna, and wondering why his family name (Köprülü) sounded so very naggingly familiar...

...and then I realised that no, I had not made an extensive study of Imperial Turkish internal politics (fun as that might be, and I may have to do so now), I had simply read the manual for Starcraft and actually cared about the background fiction.

Wow, I had no idea the SC universe had such a detailed background. That might just make it interesting enough for me to finally get through the game.

Still doesn't hold a candle to Homeworld's, though. :p

Blizzard always does that. Hell, even Diablo has oodles of interesting background lore that next to nobody who plays the game even cares about.
