 35 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 6 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 21 killed the bitch and survived.
 8 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

So yeah. I decided to try Melee AoLT with a shotgun start. Actually, I kept my tactical shotgun (and, after Deimos Lab, assault shotgun) until getting the LS in hell, but only as a final backup - only 1 stack of shells was kept (though, once Vampyre showed up, in Military Base I believe, I really didn't need the medpacks much anymore - with one exception.) Phobos Anomaly went down easily to a combination of shotgun fire and chainsaw blades, Deimos Lab gave me a piercing chainsaw which carried me through Deimon and of course, UC was no problem. I think I took WK just because I figured I'd want to use plenty mods, though it was rendered a little useless eventually by powered red armour and the LS.

What was that about guts? This time I thought I was smart doing the Mortuary, with only the LS and that loaded BFG without cells to reload... that's where my powered red armour went. And at least one other set I grabbed in panic. 2 of the viles spawned right by me at the start, but I still got horribly wounded in the process - Especially when I pulled out my fully-loaded BFG. Why you ask? Well, I blew away a good few enemies, grabbed some cells from dead arachnotrons and blew away some more, then went back to slaughtering them in melee - WITHOUT SWAPPING BACK TO THE LS.

Somehow, I got away with punching several arch-viles and their surrounding monster clouds and didn't lose my life.... though my HP was in yellow when I finished off the last of the revived enemies, and I'd burned 4 of the supercharges. The LS/AA combo, however, made me deadly - though some revenants soon trashed the AA.... regardless, on Hell 7 I ditched my 2nd assault shotgun (mortuary's one), grabbed some emergency BFG cells and proceeded to stab the mastermind to death.

The 2 kills I missed were a lost soul in HoC (Sadly, if the lave sweeps, waiting on the stairs does not work - they won't approach you) and an arachnotron in a cave in Hell (I couldn't even see the area it was in - I'd have had to wade through like, 10+ tiles of lava river that ran between solid rock to reach it). Regardless, I got my Lightfoot Gold, and survived the HMP mortuary even when accidentally using my fists for a while. The melee build really helped free up inventory space, even with an emergency BFG prepared (its capacity is so great, you don't even need cells in your inventory!) and the fact that you can gradually switch from shotguns to chainsaw makes a truly deadly run.

I can only imagine your surprise when you realized you didn't switch back to LS in the Mortuary.

Relief as I realised I could fix the fact I was doing so badly, and surprise of "How the christ am I alive?"

Thing is, even with the 20% AoLT speed boost, this went well enough that I may try to use similar builds again in the future. It seems like, early levels aside, melee is insanely powerful when you have the option of a gun if needed.
