So, I just finished playing BBSFM, and it was a nice refresher for the story. It had been a while since I played BBS, and so I had forgotten what it was like to play through the story. Now, obviously I didn't forget the story, but I had a very different experience playing through this time, compared to the experience that I had last time. I'm not saying that my opinion of the game changed, it's still too soon to say, but after playing I couldn't help but wonder why Aqua is there for any reason other than to fill out the obligatory protagonist triad that KH seems to be so fond of. Now, I'm not saying that I don't like Aqua, I like the character just fine, but she contributes nothing to the overall plot of BBS. Let's go down the list and see what each is about. Terra's Story: His internal struggle with darkness Terra trying to prove that he is worthy of being a master Chasing Xehanort and the 'masked boy' Extinguishing the Unversed threat Showing us how Terra-Xehanort came to be, and the whole situation behind that guy Ven's Story: Chasing Terra Trying to prove to the others that he can take care of himself Discovering who or what he is and the significance of this Showing us his connection with Sora, and how this has affected Sora and all of those around him Aqua's Story: Trying to save her friends As you can see, the other two have stories that are actually about something. In my opinion, Terra's is by far the most interesting. Ven's is somewhat interesting, but in the end it becomes so convoluted that it takes away from the enjoyment somewhat. Aqua's is just there to fill the game out, she doesn't do anything worthwhile, and by the time you finish her story it's apparent that all it's about is wrapping up what happened to the other two. So yeah, I just wanted to share my thoughts on this.
