Vampire: the Masquerade is the classic roleplaying game of angsty reflections on life, death, love, and tragedy. Oh, it's also got vampires in it.
We're not sure exactly when vampires stopped being horrific and became vehicles for adolescent angst, but we suspect roleplayers might have to own up to some of the blame.
R2-D2: I can't believe you're having a funeral for an NPC.
Padmé: Shhh, Pete. This is serious.
R2-D2: Nobody gave my thief a funeral when he died.
Padmé: We were too busy. We were still chasing the pirate ninja.
R2-D2: You let him get away! With the princess!
Padmé: He was her True Love. You can't stand in the way of True Love.
Anakin: Love is... irrelevant.
Padmé: No, love is important! It's important to you, right?
Anakin: It couldn't save my mother. What good is it?
Padmé: Love doesn't stop death. That's not its purpose. It's to make life worth living.
Padmé: Love and death are entwined; the sweetness of one balances the bitterness of the other.
R2-D2: Have we just slipped into Vampire: the Masquerade?
