When Manny is about to enter the greenhouse again after he sproutella-ed the pipelines and Hector dies. The doors open a little. Then you see the shot of Manny, from a low camera, throwing down his gun and turning around/walking away.

This looks extremely simular to Marshal James Anderson's same move after he kills the Sawmill's endboss in Outlaws.

I'll get some screenshots later today. First gonna take a shower.

I kinda thought that was from a movie too. But then, Lucasarts always have their in-jokes.

Actually, it's quite a common dramtic effect in movies. I just saw it this morning in fact, in a B-grade made-for-TV action flick. One guy caps another guy, throws the gun away. A move usually executed by a character that doesn't carry a gun of his own.


Jolly good.

Or by people like Neo, who just have too many damned guns. No time to reload, just drop the gun and grab another! Jackass... totally irresponsable. I mean, the baddies in Die Hard with a Vengeance, at least they were responsiable: "suppose a kid finds it??"
