I've noticed that when the death of npcs like Alyx Vance or the Lighthouse Point Commander will fade to the game over screen and most of them had contact with the G-man which means that obviously important to Gordon's (and other playable characters) success but when lesser characters like the Lighthouse Point Commander after debriefing and he is killed in the fire fight the screen doesn't appear meaning he had done his "task". Which means that other important characters will fall victim like (Eli but the failure screen was not shown instead the credits roll), maybe even Barney or Alyx(doomsday music in background) but its highly unlikely. 23:26, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

What? The only reason the game displays that message if a certain character dies is because there's a few scripted events that need to be done with the character. If the character dies, then the scripts are broken and the player cannot proceed. Instead of trapping the player after the NPC dies, it displays that message to tell you that the character is important and that you should be more careful next time.

Yes that is what I mean but the lighthouse point commander is given this event despite being a small character. 22:48, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
He's the only NPC that can open the door that leads to the Prison. That's why that message appears if he dies. Darkman 4 22:56, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
