Evil Boss?

You know how some games end with insanely difficult boss fights. However, there was this interesting game with an interesting boss fight. (I am not making this up. See if you can guess the title of this game.)

The game period is somewhere around the Nazi era. The main character (let's call him Main as I forgot his name already), and his group of friends (let's call one of them Main 2), stumbled upon a secret Nazi project that experimented on human beings to create a super human soldier. They journeyed through dungeons, forests, and swamps to learn the whole story of the classified Nazi project.

Before reaching the final boss, they were fighting mutated gunners, wobbly grenadiers and shadowy snipers. After all that ordeal, they came into this chamber with the sign "WARNING - DO NOT ENTER". As all game characters do, they entered the chamber...

Main: Shucks! He has finally brought to life that detestable creature!
Main 2: Oh man! Now we got to kill it!
Mad Scientist: Mwahahaha! It'a alive. IT'S ALIVE! Now you shall all die under my creature.
Monster: ARGH!!
Main 2: It's coming! What should we do?
Main: I don't know. Maybe give it a potato or something?
Main 2: I know that you love humour but at a time like this?
Main throws a potato at monster.
Monster: AARRGGHH!!
Mad Scientist: No!!!! It's carbohydrate intolerant!
Main 2: Seriously, are you a super-hero or some kind of madman?
Main: I guess we'll never know.

I stared at the screen and like...carbohydrate-intolerant? That's the lamest weakness a boss - mind you it's a FINAL boss - can ever have. I was trying to get over the shock as the credits rolled and the screen "Thank You For Playing" appeared.

I hate lame endings like that, but I find that boss battles that go on and on and on with no end in sight (and no way of saving your progress!) are much worse.

True. It's like you never know when the boss will use his most powerful move and wipe you hero out. And the worst part is that you will need to go through a mind-boggling maze before the final This was one of the reasons why I stopped playing Xenogears on PS1.
