I personally don't care for QTE and i am talking about what actually happened.
Why not just have Cortana use the light bridge to give Didact a handicap? We see her using the light bridge to hold Didact in place by the wrists, why not have Cortana crush his armor there (so he can't use Force), and dusable his shield? Didact then escapes from Cortana's imprisonment and we have a straight up boss fight. Didact is now on the same level as Chief because Cortana disabled his shields and some weapons.
As for weapons, they are on the middle of a Forerunner ship. It shouldn't be that hard for Chief to find something like a Binary rifle or Scattershot lying around. Those are strong weapons and would be readilly available.
It also seems Didact lacks an Ancilla, or the one he has is inferior to Cortana. Remember when you plugged Cortana into that tower and had to hold off the Crawlers while he made a portal? Cortana says she managed to lock Didact out o the system. She managed to beat Didact's security on his own ship. Earlier, Didact also refers to Cortana as an evolved Ancilla.Exactly. Imagination ftw!
EDIT: And it is important. Doesn't matter if it's less than a percent of the campaign, it's the last moment of gameplay before one puts down the controller. If that's lackluster, the last impression of the game is lackluster. Why end a game on a low, or in this case meh? Oh yeah, shiny CG...
Because a light bridge is not a weapon, she can use the light bridge to make some curvings that would hold the didact for sometime but not build a huge knife from hardlight and chop didact....
As for weapons, how will the chief escape the didact ? The didact is now pissed off and will destroy chief having no back thoughts.
He cant lack an ancilia, every forerunnner had one, didact bieing the most important forerunner of his time could not actually lack an ancilia. cortana is not even the most advanced human AI, i doubt even the most advanced ones are better than a regular forerunner ancilia. As for him saying "evolved Ancilla" its because she is rampanant, AI's are rampanant because they become full of information, they become independant.
Using a light bridge as an improvised weapon would be more believable than having the Librarian pop out of nowhere and evolve the Chief. If not a weapon directly, hand wave it by saying that Cortana loaded herself into Didact and is hacking his armour.
As for escape, Chief now has no weapon (because the Didact was force choking him earlier) so he runs back to one of the many weapon crates scattered around the place and grabs the biggest gun he sees. Didact breaks free of Cortana's imprisonment and is now coming after Chief, but now we have a Binary rifle to fight with.
You are missing the point. Cortana beat Didact (or his Ancilla) on his own ship in his own computer system. This is not just overcoming him, Cortana is in their system, she should be at a disadvantage yet she still managed to lock him out of the system while she was rampant. The Didact (and his Ancilla, if he had one) were in their home territory. If he should have won anywhere, it should have been there.
