Actually, I find quite a few of the Shadowgate deaths to be cheaper than many of Uninvited's. Shadowgate is also my least favorite of the three games. I don't know, I liked the themes to the other two better.
Though admittedly Uninvited's death where you go to the top floor and try to explore around is really cheap.
