The "Space Marine" that James Cameron first introduced in Aliens has become one of the most hackneyed cliches, particularly in videogames. From Halo to Gears of War to Warhammer, there's no escaping it. Even Cameron rode them hard in Avatar (is it plagiarism if you steal from yourself?).
That first Bill Paxton link above was already purposefully a caricature from the moment of inception. But the archetype has devolved to a point where it's no longer self-aware. Here's to "another glorious day in the Corp!"
