The problem is the only way you can really solve the mystery is by figuring out what people's motives are. If you attribute their motives to "They're in a story so the author made them act that way this time" then you might as well give up. You can explain nothing.

Whenever you start looking at any of the problems in the game "Why was Battler still in his room in ep6 after he faked death?" for example, you can counter it by saying "It is part of the game, so the actual person in the story doesn't really have a reason."

It doesn't help you solve the mystery at all. Instead, you only eliminate things that would have helped you reason about the people and the environment.

Unless you take each game as a series of real events, taken by real people with real motivations, hidden by the deception of the meta-world, the game is completely unsolvable.
