This meta question kind of delves into what you are saying, if you look at Strix's answer here:
StackExchange, and each of its child sites, is supposed to be a community for experts to provide expert answers. Questions that do not define a specific problem should not be answered, because it is impossible to provide an expert answer without a clear problem space defined.
It it not a good idea to answer a broad/closed question because of the implication that you are giving a broad/incorrect answer.
I'll give you my two sides to your two questions here.
What I'm asking about is the answer.
The person who answered this specific question got to the heart of the question and I believe that is acceptable. His answer covered everything, went into detail about the choices and even updated it concerning comments. A well thought out answer and even an update on the answer based on what happens after you make the choice X VS Y is deserving of a +1 in my book.
My issue is mainly to do with the apparent acceptance of the broad question.
We do not accept broad questions - you can see we close multiple broad questions per day. We also encourage (or try to) people to come back and edit their questions to get it accepted.
The question is fine now as it stands because the question has been updated to ask a single question about a single plot point in the game. Yes, this part of the game has multiple sides to it depending on whom you side with, but it is essentially asking X VS Y, what happens? Which is totally fine.
