He got pushed around by Megatron constantly. They never touched upon his intent to betray Megatron. I was hoping they'd let him kick some ass in the third film, but no. He took out an empty space shuttle and a couple of ospreys. I didn't have a problem with Sam killing him, but it was just so drawn out and pathetic. Just the "Ow! Ow! Ow! I can't see! I can't see!" had me cringing. By the time he started dragging his face on the ground and said "I'm gonna kick you!", I just thought, "Put him out of his misery already."
I would have preferred if Starscream was the one who found Sam and Epps when they first get into Chicago and attacks them, only to be slaughtered by the Autobots. Pretty much replacing the random Decepticon in the dropship with Starscream.
Crap I didnt even realize that was starscream, i was hoping it wasnt becuase the character was so off, even off from what had been portrayed already. Thought it might be thundercracker or something. Dang..starscream was always my fav decepticon.
