I think the issue is that some 'not so bad' things can get censored because no company in the age of the Internet wants a vocal (not to confuse with big) backlash.
I mean, is there really any evil in the petting mini-game?
I went to do some research on this just to make sure I don't speak out of my ass (I don't know FE:F that much)
If I'm missing some part of this, do say so.
Here's what I got:
- It's optional (I assume there are many other ways of getting a relationship boost)
- Face/head petting ONLY
- Sounds close to moaning may occur
I mean, at worst, you would just tell the VA to tone down the "I'm having an orgasm as he/she brushes his hand in my hair" part to "I'm getting a terrible massage".
Last I checked, petting someone's head wasn't considered depraved.
A bit creepy in North American culture? Sure. Offensive? I wouldn't say so.
Also, that mini-game reminds me of a tamer, shittier, Love Plus kissing mini-game.
