Kid Icarus creator: Stories in video games are ‘honestly irksome to me’ | Polygon.

I just want the game to let me play it already.

He makes some really good points. I believe you can make a good story fit with gameplay, even with character deaths and the like. Not wanting to “have to keep explaining things to the writer”  might be a little bit of effort whining, but it’s absolutely true that everything in a game should be subordinate to gameplay.
