my wife wrote that "Ygerna wants to be resurrected. Damian wants Ygerna resurrected, although he doesn’t know he does." she was simply being sarcastic about Damian's ineptness and the fact that he doesn't realize what the player character's actions would actually cause.

Nice explanation but what in the hell does it changes if it's a sarcasm? Some kinda like an excuse for such words or what?
Seriously, the statement like "Damian wants Ygerna resurrected, although he doesn’t know he does." made me lol. He does, he want and it is pretty clear, the game plot (via dialogs/books/cutscenes) DIRECTLY says that. I failed to see a reason for a sarcasm here, actually, there is NONE at all.

If you're going to criticize a game plot you'd better to understand it. Otherwise, if you dislike it or don't get it - doesn't mean the plot is bad (but yeah, D2 plot line is no so good tbh).

Just better to think uber9k times before to call your opinion a review :P
