[QUOTE] Haha, Panelo and Larsa? God knows Vaan isn't on the ball enough to notice, so I wouldn't be surprised. I found it funny there were two scenes that almost seemed to me that Panelo was flirting with Basch. The game seems kind of ambiguous with its couples. I mean there are the "obvious" ones but there are small hints that almost suggest other couples not entirely out of the question. But yeah LarsaXPenelo 4 LIFE![/QUOTE] Considering that Penelo joined the adventure solely because of Vaan, I didin't even considered PeneloXLarsa. Sure, she cares about him, but more like an older sister. Anyway, I agree, there are many "unclear" couples, and at least one non reciprocal love. I think that FFXII does develop the characters, but not in the obvious way of most rpg's: "once reaching certain place, suddenly you know character A tragic past" or "after event X unfolds, character B discovers that C is really his father/sister/evil twin/whatever". In FFXII, you get to know the characters from their behavior, their way of speaking, etc. Little is discovered about their pasts usually, and there isn't many radical changes about any of them during the story, but I liked it that way. Many times, "forcing" character development through the story seem really bad, suddenly stopping the main story just to add personality to character X. If there isn't necessary or relevant to tell someone's story, don't do it. Finally, about the optional stuff Polly mentioned: I think that the reward of doing those was just the very own sense of accomplishment of beating them. After more than 45 minutes of fighting Gilgamesh 2nd battle at level 46 with no legendary weapons at all, and being in the verge of death countless times, beating him was one of the most satisfactory experiences I've had in a videogame in a lot of time. And that is enough for me (In that particular fight, you also get great rewards, but even if it gave zero rewards, I wouldn't care).
