Excellent!

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games
