WARNING!! This method will likely reset all of your progress from both campaigns. Get them first, or create a backup save somewhere else and don't touch it until after you've done this.

You can do this in a MUCH easier way. I beat the game 2 years ago on Easy, and just popped this one now. You don't even have to play through all of the Executive level, just the last checkpoint, which the game conveniently saves for you.

The bad news is that you have to fight the last boss on Hard, but that's surprisingly easy. Follow Confused Shelf's outline.

1) Beat the game on Easy. Or Normal. Your choice. You could also beat it on Hard if you want to, that would also work. wink

2) This is important: make sure you stop and move your file before you beat the last boss, else you'll have to play through the last level again. (Not too hard, though, only about 5 minutes or so.)

3) Assuming you didn't beat this on Hard (and that's why you're reading this), go to the dashboard and move your savegame to a memory stick.

4) Go back into the game and start a new game on Hard. Play through to the first checkpoint. (I went all the way to after I jumped down to kill the drone, but you might be able to do this before that.)

5) Exit the game. Go to Options => Select Storage Device. Select your memory stick.

6) Select Continue Game. You will find yourself just before the last fight. You'll find that she's quite a bit trickier than he was before... the game has scaled the difficulty up to Hard.

7) As Confused Shelf said, use the SCAR gun on the elevator button to open the shaft. Then shoot her about twice each time to knock her down and closer to the shaft. You may not even need to melee her; I was able to just keep blasting her back with the SCAR.

8) The cheeve will pop as the credits roll.
