Cliches don't have to be perfect matches, and rarely are.
- Member of an exclusive Good-oriented Order.
- Bit of a loose cannon considering the Order he's in.
- Deceived by agent of evil.
- Slays numerous innocents as a result.
- Kills former master.
- Becomes primary villain (although this is slightly arguable with Vader).
Why is this in the video game section?
Be honest with yourself, if Voss was some ridiculously unique character, haters would still hate, because to do so would mean that blizzard would be deviating from the fantasy genre, which has been all but fully explored and played out. People keep saying, "oh another powerful character, LAME", wtf do you wan't, your faction leader to go die to wolves at Northshire Abbey? Yea, that would go over well, "Guys oh em gee, Jillian Hoss is so awesome, the wolves bit her brother and turned him into a Worgen, so she went for revenge, but got clusterfucked on the way to Gilneas by the adds roaming across the street, she is soooo cool!"
Every single important lore character is a walking cliché. Lillian Voss is as lame and uninteresting as the rest.
She is too overpowered, too strong and too resillient. I don't like the character one bit at all. Killing half the Crusaders in Tirisfal glades just by walking over them quite literally over and over does the opposite for me of taking keen interest in the character.
well, forsaken do have one of the worst lore characters (sylvanas), so i bet this lillian voss isn't so great either.
I think its funny people love Lillian but hate Med'an...

Unless of course you where talking about the hero who turns to evil.Cliches don't have to be perfect matches, and rarely are.

Doesn't lose to his mentor? Arthas kills Uther the Light-Bringer his mentor the same as Vader kills Obi-wan. Vader does lose his arm to Obi-wan though. Both mentors tried to bring their respective pupils back to the light.
But you are right Vader doesn't have a dad and Arthas loses himself to the Lich King and is only brought back at the moment of his death.
One more thing to make them cliche though: Both are whiny little b*tches.
