hmmmm...I don't know about teh forced and unnatural part. real life tends to
have a lot of emotions too. I think it comes from a cultural perspective as
well. I have friends here who were what you would call army brats, and sometimes
their fathers would tell them of times when they were forced to shoot enemies
who were their kid's ages. if that made them feel really bad to the point of
hugging their children and crying, imagine what it can do to people like Heero
-- he has no one to go to, so what does he do? he just makes sure that he gets
the missions done right and with more preparation. yes, he retains the constipated
attitude, but hell, he has no choice. same with wufei. he fights for honor,
period. but remember in the conversation with Heero (while they are fighting);
he is suddenly stopped in his tracks mentally by what heero says to him. There
are defining moments in their developments as characters, but just like real
people, they will not change overnight.

Yes, I see your point. The problem in GW, in my mind, was that they had potentially
complex characters, but was not given enough "stretch" to go through all of
it. if they had found a way to even add ten mopre episodes to it, then it would
have been nicely filled in.
