In recent years Square Enix cant seem to decide whether they want to make Final Fantasy a game or a movie. In Final Fantasy 12, 13 and 13-2 the amount of control that was taken away from player really pissed me off as watching battles play out instead of actively participating in them is not my idea of fun. Lightning Returns seems to have rectified this but you still have to play as Lightning
I don't get the appeal of this character at all.
The idea of letting a western developer create a Final Fantasy could breath new life into a stagnating franchise. Tetsuya Nomura's character designs have become predictable and boring. Moody character with impossible emo hair check, Bulky wise cracking character check, Innocent female character with a dark past check.
How about letting Eidos pick up where Grin left off with that Final Fantasy 12 Spin off or something similar to test the waters. It looked fairly promising from the footage.http://www.oxm.co.uk/60246/neogaf-user-finds-final-fantasy-xii-spin-off-assets/
