Official description
[sic]
For Centuries, the planet Hillys has been locked in conflict with a race of relentless alien invaders.

Wary of her government's promises to repel the aliens for good, a rebellious action reporter named Jade sets out to capture the truth behind the prolonged war.

Armed with her camera, Dai-Jo staff, and fierce determination, Jade soon finds herself inside the jaws of a horrific conspiracy, and face to face with an evil she cannot possibly fathom

In a world where deception is the deadliest weapon of all, will Jade's discoveries be enough to free her people?

alienprotagonist - revealed at the very end with no earlier indications of it.
starship - can be considered a spoiler as well, for it is not expected nor indicated by anything for the first ~1/3s of the game. Nor is it exactly obvious that you'll be manually flying around with it.
moon - this is pretty obvious as soon as it's mentioned, which was somewhat early, IIRC. Visiting it happens at the very end, though.

Supports only 4:3 aspect ratio but enforces letterboxing for some peculiar reason (with even 4:3). Use of any aspect ratio besides 4:3 still gets letterboxed and the image is stretched (everything from the 3D view to 2D interfaces).
