I think a lot of RTS fans would disagree about the SC2 single-player campaign. In all honesty, it simply wasn't that good. I'm not saying it was "bad", but it's certainly not the grand experience you're trying to make it sound like.

On the other hand, I think the genre has been somewhat weak in recent years. For that reason, I can understand why some people would rate SC2 as high as they do. Personally, I haven't really enjoyed an RTS game since Supreme Commander. I still haven't played CoH yet though…
