So, DW-U is a single player game, why then is the Game Editor pass protected? The actual Game start up isn't. Just a random thought.
(I'm sure there's some reason for it.)

It isn't actually password-protected. The option is there if you want to use it, but you don't have to enter a password if you don't want to, and as long as you never enter a password after making changes you'll not need to enter a password to make more changes in the future.

As for why it's there, my guess would be that it's partly for succession games and scenario maps, and partly for the same general reason as 'iron man' mode exists in other games.

Thanks, Aeson! IMO it seems superfluous in a single player game.

If you want to make a custom map to share then it would make sense so people couldn't just edit your clever event triggers and placement of systems and such.
