Or, in an example a little closer to this list, editing the school scenes and
Christina McKenzie out of 0080. Sure, you've got a lot of action, and some
intrigue and espionage, and even a friendship and a sacrifice (and those seem to
be all too common anymore), but you've lost a good chunk of the reason why the
story was written in the first place.
