Also, Kara from Detroit seems to be a surrogate mother of sorts if the girl manages to live through the game.

Yeah, there are already a few, even though they are far in between, video-games already do have some kick-ass moms and mother figures.

Personally, I think Pratchett should worry about getting Lara right and interesting before she worried about making a story about moms to interject into the gaming medium. Her idea of strong women is pretty laughable, because she gives them as many character flaws as possible to make you empathize with them, then just makes them kick ass because they have to be. No depth whatsoever.

She's extremely overrated IMO, and if it weren't for her dad's career, I doubt she ever would have gotten any attention to ever get a job writing the story for a high profile AAA IP.
