If the characters make a happy face, you have created 1 item. For every time the bar fills and they make a happy face, you make 1 item. If they frowney face, ufail.

At your point in the game, you can make a couple decent weapons. Just keep resetting til you get a price area of like 500 to 600. You can make a few decent items in that range, and even better, if you save and pay attention, you can make some money creating and selling stuff you make. Trial and error are key here, or a friendly gamefaqs guide for those without patience.

TASTY!

Also is item creation necessary in Star Ocean 2 like it is in this game or nah

Not unless you want to hit level 100 and have the Eternal Sphere while still on disk 1, but doing the former basically means you've already lost as the time you could've spent getting there naturally and it's not like you'll actually be able to benefit from all of this anyways due to the fact that the plot throws a barrage of unwinnable boss fights in your general direction from the point where this becomes feasible till somewhere in disk 2.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Smitheroo.

Occasionally some weapons (maybe armor?) is made through the tech-smithing (forgot what it's called ATM).  IIRC some of Maria's weapons are made that way.

Smithing gives you weapons and armor, Engineering gives you Maria's guns.

I never actually found any point in doing item creation in SO2. By the time you get your skill levels high enough to produce stuff consistently, the game's basically over.

Sort of like cooking in Tales of games.

The flaw of Tales games healing system is that it's percent based.  While FF's Potion and Hi-Potion do it by increments to follow you as you get stronger, to Tales games, less% heal IS their progress, so at the start, you're only healing meager 10-30% at a time.  If there's any part of a Tales game that is hard, it's usually the beginning.

The last game I completed which wasn't that long ago was Tales of the Abyss. Very fun game decent story so I decided to start this one after and it's a lot tougher even Chrono Cross isn't that simple with it leaving the player to figure out what to do next
