Eh, I'd actually like there to be hints.... I think SS got it right, but whatever, I honestly play the game for the gameplay first and the story second. Not the other way around. It was how the game was developed in the first place, so no need to really add anymore emphasis to it than there already is

I didn't see many people complain about Link + Ilia, actually


It has the same core problem that Link and Zelda had in SS, they try to portray a relationship by having the girl yell and complain at you, while blatantly telling you they are supposed to like each other. It ends up seeming forced.

If they can include some romance in a way that the female character is actually likable (like Collette Brunell), I wouldn't hate it at all

In Japanese culture that's how relationships are suppose to work. Japanese men view all girlfriends as potential wives, and wives are supposed to complain a lot, so therefore naggy girlfriend=prime waifu material.

But that's not why people complain about Ilia. People complain about Ilia because she's a bland, unmemorable character. She doesn't have a single personality trait.

Ilia has the same personality that Zelda has in SS

But, none of the female leads actually take Link seriously besides Zelda in Zelda II. Link is a loveless fool.

Link is a female character?

Why do you think Link and Zelda never got married?

The only people who complain are those same people who are WW fanboys. They don't approve of link having a relationship with Zelda.

Marin and Link were kinda cute together. Too bad she was just a dream

I'm not sure I want official shipping in games, unless I have some sorta control over it
because godamn it sucks when your shipping is revealed to be false in a new game

cannon romances are fine though as long as they're obvious
