I don’t know if this is exactly right for an example, but for me, this goes to Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice, specifically in the story department, and a big reason why it’s my least favorite Ace Attorney game and a game I dislike (despite its few ups, like its second case which is great) because the writing has just so much going on that isn’t executed well at all
We’re introduced to this entirely new country Khura’in in Spirit of Justice and we switch between the USA and Khura’in, where Phoenix Wright is in Khura’in while Athena Cykes and Apollo Justice are back at home in the US. There’s a whole culture and religion with this country, but it’s not executed well and it all just feels off, especially with it being related to the Spirit Channeling Maya does in the series and the ancestors of Spirit Channeling, which makes this whole place feel convoluted and it doesn’t add on well to the the pre-established Spirit Medium the series had. The idea of going to a brand new country in this series is cool on paper but bad in execution
The main plot of most of the game is that this country bans and kills lawyers and people who are found guilty cannot get a lawyer, and so Phoenix now having arrived in this country to see Maya must now fix this entire government system, and it all just feels so incredibly forced. Not to mention the one behind all this, Gara’n the urserper of the throne, is such a one dimensional comical villain, who despite being able to literally rewrite the law and hold people at gunpoint and has all this power, doesn’t use it fully and stupidly allows for Phoenix and Apollo to go up against her in court and end up cornering her
And the way the game goes from playing as Phoenix to Apollo to back to Phoenix to Athena in a fillar case to Apollo is not done well. It really felt like they were trying to give Apollo limelight and to grow as a character because in AJ he was underdeveloped and in DD his arc wasn’t done (and he was done rather poorly in that game as well), but in the end, Apollo’s character ends up being retconned and feels really poorly done, having him go up against Phoenix in a civil trial where Phoenix is really regressed and out of character and is pretty pathetic, Apollo gets a whole new backstory never mentioned before where he’s now an adopted son of a former ruler of Khura’in because his dad died while performing in Khura’in, and Apollo also ends up taking down a corrupt ruler who can rewrite the law at any time, and then decides to be a lawyer in Khura’in. It all just feels like a fanfic of Apollo, a really bad one.
And then there’s also the fact that so many reoccurring characters from the old trilogy like Pearl and Edgeworth come back and don’t even do much, and mainly just feel like a cameo. Maya is probably the most annoying out of all these, who gets chagred with murder and arrested in this game (something that’s already happened twice before) and gets kidnapped (also happened before) and mainly plays the part of being a damsel in distress for Phoenix to save, which is frustrating as we haven’t seen Maya in a while. It’s such a cheap way to handle her and wasted potential of a comeback for Maya who was Phoenix’s assistant and an iconic and important character in the series
I could go on longer, but yeah, Spirit of Justice tries so many things at the same time but none of its ideas are implemented well, and the game is overall poorly written and it’s a pretty awful way to finish off Apollo’s arc and how it continued the main series as a whole
