I've read up extensively on the literature available on other people's experiences regarding Road to Legend and among the things that bother me is the fact that the final battle seems to be superfluous.
By the time the final battle occurs, the heroes are generally so overpowered that even if the Overlord has a commanding lead in conquest points (and therefore XP) when the final battle occurs, he still stands little to no chance.
On the other hand, early in the game, the final battle will never happen anyway because the Overlord needs only to accomplish his plot or to raze Tamalir to win. So what's the point? Has any Overlord won the game by destroying the heroes in the final battle? I just feel like it goes against generally accepted norm of a final battle being an epic struggle between good and evil.
