Re: GRRM ruined a song of ice and fire by killing too many good characters
If ASoIaF were the standard book or story Robb would have won the war and been king. This obviously isn't your standard story. It has more depth than anything else I can name. The dead Starks didn't have the brains or the guile to win the game of thrones. But never fear, there are more Starks alive and well, and four more books to the series you haven't yet read. One thing we learn early in on these books: anything can happen.
