But my favorite sidequests are always those that yield playable characters as pays offs (yuffie and vincent/ff7 type stuff). Hence why the Suikoden franchise proved a wet dream for me.

Oooo, I feel the same Klyde. Also I wanna give the Star Ocean props for having recruitment sidequests, especially 2. I'm looking at you Opera/Ernest/Ashton/Chisato!

The lack of inclusion of Precis in this post disturbs me greatly.

Eh.
Precis' contribution to the game: Some decent PAs.

Ernest's contribution to the game: His super steals for super suits.

The biggest decision is whether to take on Opera or Ashton (these days, I'm thinking more the former).  Chisato outranks Noel no question.

Oh, I didn't forget Precis, I was just thinking about the peeps that required a little bit of legwork to obtain. I could be wrong; I honestly forget how you recruit Precis.

PA in Linga.

The town you waste more time than any game ever should to get some documents translated that don't ever get brought up again unless you recruited Bowman and get his "alone" ending.

Is it terrible that I was disappointed when I got an ending with him and Rena and he didn't end up leaving his wife for her?

Edit: Also, I'm gonna give SO2 props for the private actions/endings. Pairing up your peeps could be considered a sidequest, at least an artificially arbitrated one.

If the game was made in any part of North America, that TOTES would have happened.

I think it's because I still hear her awful, awful PSX voice in my head.  I didn't like playing her or hating her, but I liked her for the sake of PAs.

Precis was my favorite character when I first played the game. I honestly don't know why, but I was like 11 and thought she was super cool. I'm still fond of her as a result, although I'd have to say Chisato or Opera are my current favs.

LUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKY. Yeah, I paired her and Claude. Team ended up being Precis, Claude, Rena, and Ashton (Welch if on PSP version).

The town you waste more time than any game ever should to get some documents translated that don't ever get brought up again unless you recruited Bowman and get his "alone" ending.

Plus the dungeon has a random chance of crashing the game on you. At least getting the documents happened on the way, even if everything associated with that endeavor was just as useless. Really, almost everything that happens on Expel is pretty goddamn useless anyways. Of course, Tri-Ace went and showed just how much they learned from that useless time-wasting by doing the exact same thing again in SO3.

Also, loving finally. Some Opera fans. About fucking time really.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Opera was my favorite chick design wise. Something about that fancy dress and heels, then being a bounty hunter...damn hot yo.

I love Opera... but I love Ashton even more =/

What about the sidequest of curing the little girl for Ashton? That's a pretty endearing side quest which also gives him a unique ending.
I always get him that ending.
