Don't forget the Banshee Aerospace/atmospheric fighter blasphemy, the Awesome built by Steiner, the Centurion as a common Draconis Combine 'Mech, the Thor with missile launchers on the legs, the continual scaling differences, the fact that the Somerset Strikers find Camelot Command rather than Rhonda's Irregulars, the soap operatic revelation that Franklin Sakamoto was Theodore Kurita's son, and numerous other things that have made some of us BTech fans to label it the Khar'toon.

The worst part is, FASA has made the whole thing cannon!!! Franklin Sakamoto has even appeared in one of the BTech novels.
