No thanks. Escort missions are the worst thing ever.
The character you're escorting is either too stupid or too slow

It doesn't make ANY sense to have that crap in a TR game so no i don't want it and i hope that it never happens in my favorite franchise.

When are they ever fun and good? They're just annoying in every game, especially if the character you have to protect is a stupid motherf.... who runs straight into the fray but can't fight or protect themselves. You just wanna say "survival of the fittest b**** " and let them die, but then the game punishes you for it.

*Flashbacks of Resident Evil 4* (which is still a fantastic game, but god Ashley was a chop)

Nope. nope. nope. nope. nope. Every escort mission I have ever been forced to do (and every one I have done that has been a side quest) has been a horrible experience. Mostly because of the excortee's AI. So, no. And if I wasn't clear already, no.

How would you feel if the escort mission was about Lara being escorted?

No thanks, I can't think of a single escort mission I've enjoyed...

Now, Lara having a companion that is completely competent at looking after themselves? Sure, why not. However, I'd prefer if this was kept to a minimum. Think a more drawn out section of the mountain descent at the beginning of Rise...Though, I guess we've already got this in Shadow? Not sure how long Jonah stays with you.

Nope. Because there is still going to be an AI issue. AI is programmed to do and be one thing. It can't adjust to each individual player enough to not make it feel like a drag on the player.

They could built a dynamic AI? Reacting to Lara's speed of movement
and trying to "guess" the player's move and being able to
adjust itself when the gameplay changes pattern?

Maybe I'm asking too much, I don't like escorting people in games as well.
I was thinking about an alternative.

Escort missions are the worst type of mission. I hate them more than quick time events. And those can die in a fire. I can not for the life of me think of a reason someone would want an escort mission other than to cause pain and frustration.

Shorter answer. NO!
