I hated that final scene with Fi. Like you said, the music, the tone, her words, it sounded like it was supposed to mean something... but came off as me wanting to go "alright, gtfo, it's fine, thanks for nothing".
Midna on the other hand... the amount of shit you and her went through made her farewell that much bigger a deal.
Fi. I was hoping there was going to be some scene about her where she shed the robot-act. But... nah. Worst part of her as a guide, she doesn't have the information from the get-go, and told you a bunch of other useless shit ("rumours"? wtf is this, People Magazine?). There was no big moment you got to see anything other than what you saw the first 10 minutes. A damn shame, I thought she had a lot of potential....
I do agree with many on this though: Demise was baller looking. It was a cool looking final boss fight.
I thought the game hit quite a strive with narrative in Twilight Princess. I feel like a bit of that was lost here with just about everyone except awesome Groose scenes. He was the only character I can really look back at fondly. =/
I'm glad peeps here realize it, though. I said Skyward Sucks to a co-worker who has the biggest hard-on for OoT, and like many others, they can't really pin WHY they liked Skyward Sword, more they're just willing to say "It was good!". The game had fun "elements", but ultimately wasn't too exciting to play.
Good tracks IMO though (besides the Ballad of the Goddess; which ultimately earns a full letter-grade bump-up for being Zelda's Lullaby in reverse and making it work... how lucky for Koji Kondo, saves a lot of time thinking a new piece: N64 ver backwards
)Bamboo IsleZelda theme's that isn't her LullabyWhenever the fuck this track was used
Fi's theme was damned nice, I thought. Reminded me of Thomas Newman
shit.Lanayru...err, in the past.This one is my favorite, though. Simple and pretty.
A major kudos, even though I generally didn't like this game, I loved almost eveeerryy moment of the Water Temple in this game. Swimming was kept to a minimum (Farore flooded made up for that in bullshit). The Buddhist theme and the boss killed by a better sword than (whoops) the Master Sword was a really great experience.
That...and Gorons. I always appreciate them though. They're so awesome.
