RE: "...because the hero is a half-human Sasquatch..."
The point about a human-alien hybrid is a major sticking point, in my humble opinion. I had exactly the same reaction to the television series "V" (I saw the DVD version.), when it had an alien who was disguised as a human impregnate a human woman. Why, we (so far) cannot create a human-chimp hybrid (I don't know why anyone would want to do so.) and human and chimp DNA are about 95%-98% (It depends on the methodology of the particular study.) identical. It is highly improbable that human DNA would be compatible enough with whatever molecule(s) are used by a totally alien biology to transmit genetic information to culminate in any result at all, much less a viable offspring. It would be much more likely that the body of the gestation carrier (For the sake of discussion, I'm assuming a human female.) would flush out the alien material; it would probably make her sick and might even kill her. Biological contact between human and aliens would not be as trivial as sex between two humans of different races. So that's why I have such a negative reaction to the very concept of a human-alien hybrid.
