At least for me it hasn't been the difficulty level that's made me restart missions. More that either there's something that I have to go and do elsewhere so I can't play the missions through, or that I get bored and want to do something else for a while. And alt-tabbing isn't a viable option if you want to use your RAM for something else than having Shadowgrounds in the background.
At the moment I don't even feel like opening Shadowgrounds at all for an indefinate amount of time because I know that if I plan to progress in the game at all I'll have to play far beyond bored to get to the next level and the next save.
Sorry to bring this old thread up, but I've bought the game through the Frozen Bundle.
So I just want to say that e-zor is spot on. A game should never dictate how you spend your time. The result for me here is that I won't play through the game because I had to quit in the middle of a level and now I simply can't bring myself to play the same part again (I'm on the alien ship). It's just a bad design decision.
I just hope that the 2nd game has a quick-save option, 'cause that's what I'll be installing now, after de-installing the first one.
