KH2 was way too easy. The only thing in this game that was a challenge was Xaldin. And that grounshaker thing. The plot itself wasn't bad. I liked that. But the script was bad. Very bad. Also they tried to kill off Goofy. YOU DON'T KILL GOOFY. EVAR!

When was this mentioned?
Did it need to be. We would see Sora suck in his sadness and act goofy only a few seconds later. First time we see it happen is when he starts crying before getting on the train to the Mysterious Tower. He stays pretty upset until they arrive at the Tower.
The second time that I can remember clearly is when there is the 1000 Heartless attack. When he finds out that Goofy is "dead" he flips his shit (not as bad as Mickey). Then he finds out Kairi is in danger and that he is helping the Organization by killing Heartless, he gets angry, loses hope, pounds his fists in the ground. Donald and Goofy stop him from doing so, then after Maleficent saves them, you see him in that Corridor feeling hopeless and confused.
I also feel like Donald and Goofy periodically told Sora to chin up and smile.
I think at the end of KHII it is very telling of how Sora was feeling throughout the game when he confronts Xemnas about how there are more feelings than just anger and rage. If you pay attention to the clues in the game (Sora's illogical anger and hate of the Org, the momentary bouts of hopelessness, his frustration at being unable to find Riku) you could piece together that Sora was feeling these same emotions, but unlike Xemnas he learned that there is always hope and not to give up.
We already know Xehanort and Sora are practically foils to one another, but a lot of their actions are the same and lead to different end results. This was just an example of that, and helped to show that Sora wasn't really that happy-go-lucky as he acted.
The script wasn't strong at all. Sora was dumbed down way too much even though it was revealed that it was all just an act on Sora's part, but that is still no excuse for the stupidity that left Sora's mouth every moment.
1. The more important a character was, the less screen time he had. Riku, not seen until the last world. Diz, disappeared after Roxas prologue. The Organization for being the main antagonists, were barely there for most of it.
