If Command & Conquer: Generals 2 is really a BioWare game (and it is, right?), then we should care about its story. Storytelling in video games, after all, is a BioWare hallmark.
This is what we've got so far, from the official Command & Conquer site, run by Victory Games, which is now under the BioWare umbrella:
In the near future, world leaders are mere seconds from signing a global treaty and bringing an end to war as we know it when a devastating terrorist attack rips through the peace conference, killing all in attendance. In a world left with no politicians, diplomats, or activists, only the Generals remain.
It's up to you to assume their roles, command of their forces, and put an end to global terrorism once and for all.
Does that sound good? And, for what it's worth, does it sound potentially BioWare-y? Remember, BioWare made a Sonic game and got that to feel like the kind of choice-filled talky adventure that gamers love BioWare for.
