Escort missions are the bane of my existence. That, and any mission where you need to rely on an NPC to keep themselves alive e.g. many of the missions in Far Cry 3, with Sam controlling the mounted gun mission being the prime example.

Completing missions like that are often down to luck, rather than player skill, and you can fail the mission a hundred times before the Gods take pity on you and allow you to succeed.

completely agree. Dislike escort missions and missions where you must keep another NPC alive by protecting them. I also hate 'protect this building/object for X amount of time' missions.

Rotating towers of spikey instant fall and try a fucking million times type levels do it for me :) then they go and make the next bit even cuntacularly harder, God of war is a prime example.
