So, basically what happens in the series is that Minerva uses various ancestors of Desmond to lead him to the Grand Temple. But why?

She says we're centuries late, so why didn't she just tell Ezio itself instead of talking to Desmond through him. Surely she would know that Desmond would be centuries late, so why talk to him in the first place? Why not talk to the person who HAS centuries to do something about it, namely Ezio.

And after going through all the trouble, she finally leads Desmond to the Grand Temple, and Desmond is all pumped up and ready to save the world and become the hero. And what does she tell him to do? Nothing, she tells him to walk away and let the world start again. Then why lead him to the temple in the first place?

If the end of the world was inevitable according to Minerva, then why did she go through all the trouble to lead Desmond to the temple in the first place. Why didn't she just let him go on with his life as he was?

I think Minerva was really and truly prone to Hyperbole.

When Minerva and Jupiter were dropping 'hints' for Desmond through his ancestors, this was presumably before they found out about Juno's treachery. They wanted to lead him to the temple originally to use the pedestal to stop the disaster. But when Juno's treachery was discovered, they probably sealed her in the temple to prevent her plan from happening, but found this would also render the pedestal useless if they wanted to keep Juno sealed. They probably then went on to try and make another one, and attempted Desmond and co. to finish this one, rather than use the one Juno was sealed within.

Before her death, Minerva looked forward into the future to see if their plan had successeded and instead, discovered Juno's. SHe had no more time left to lay anymore hints for them in the future, that's why she sealed herself away and was unable to reveal anything until the last second.

The thing is, we being AC fans can explain this in a number of ways. But the truth remains this, and many other things like this were not explained in the game at all.

I really expected atleast some level of closure in this game, but if anything it just opened up more questions while answering next to nothing.
