Ah SC2. I remember reading somewhere that they were going to hit the $40 price point on this one, but I don't remember where so that might have been speculation.
SC2 is the Counterstrike of the RTS genre. No frills, not terribly friendly, honestly doesn't even run that well for what it is, but incomparable competitive play. It's all about precision, split second decisions, and execution. There's a story but I think Blizzard is just going to jerk you around for awhile before finishing their retread of Supreme Commander's arc. Those FMVs are nice though. Also there is a casual bullshit mode, its the custom games, or Arcade now. Play some footie wars, run some TDs, there's probably a wierd mod based on a sci fi property you like. I recommend having the TV on in the background.

But yeah, single player was more like a scenario generator. Try to keep it interesting since so many people were coming in with high skill levels. As much fun as build up and roll out is they only gave a few of those.

I don't have an opinion on ESPORTS gET IN THE GAME but the ladder works pretty well actually. If its not your thing its not your thing though.
