Well, as has been pointed out with other plot holes in this game..... if it kills you in the games, it's not canon because it never happened.

Their engine just couldn't quite handle the spinning and whatnot, so they cut to the end result ;)

oh, man, Lamb, with DMD gone, it all falls down to you to save the children of the Kingdom of Daventry from the evil hands of innocence-shattering TSL! You must now have one heck of a responsibility :)

I know!  And to do it all without crossing that increasingly fine line between sarcastic baiting and outright trolling!  Sigh...sometimes the path of righteousness is a lonely one.

Because Valanice is trying to open the box in the Dreamworld where her subconscious is trying to stop her by creating the puzzle?

Why a puzzle instead of a lock? Well, she has the means to open it, but does she have the willpower?
