Depending on how frustrating the mission is but for myself, I usually do the mission again until I get the best possible outcome. I ask because of campaign branching, it's little use making missions for a 'losing' path if everyone is like me.

If I get to the debriefing, I'll accept, though if I know beforehand (ie. I see something semi-important die), I just restart the mission there and then.

I don't really mind if I don't get the 100% grade on a mission. It's only realistic that some ships die or some enemies survive or whatever.

Unless the consequences make me sad. :(

depends how long and hard the mission is, but usually I start over.

Since it rarely has little to do with future missions, I tend not to bother than time around.

Depends on whether the bad ending involves a zod warship going down and hundreds of zods being fried. If it does then I will accept the bad ending with pleasure. :D :D

Seriously.  Vasudans kick ass.

Regarding the topic, I'm the utter dumbass who ranted and raved his way through getting every single bonus point in The Procyon Insurgency, so yeah.  The first option.  Always. :p

I usually restart, unless I'm just sick of it and don't give a crap any more.

I bet anyone who votes for restart never finishes any campaigns with unwinnable missions that involve you screwed up debriefings.  
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Well why the heck would anyone make a campaign like that?

If you screwed up, you screwed up. There should be a recommendation for how to do it better. If something else went wrong, but you didn't screw up, then it should say there was nothing you could do.

That sounds like the sort of thing Goober might do. Speaking of which, I'm still not very far into ST:R.

 
depends on the mission and how badly i think i screwed up. And the difficulty. If i really don't want to do it again, then i usually just let it go and go back to it later.

I always, always, always (et al ad nauseam) restart a mission.  That's why I hated the second two missions of the retail campaign.  I can't stand losing.

I'll typically accept whatever outcome I get, so long as I get to keep moving the campaign along.
