C/D: Lulu should have been the third member in X-2 instead of Paine

Paine just seems very unnecessary as a character. The dark and brooding thing was already covered by Lulu in FFX, and rather than pairing her up with Wakka and being a stay at home mom, she would have been better utilized as a teammate to Yuna and Rikku as the voice of reason. Paine was just like a female Squall (who imo is one of the most unlikeable FF protagonists) and I never got myself to cae about that newcomer in the least bit.

Also Lulu changing dresspheres in battle would have been win. Hm .. maybe that is why they had Paine, because they wanted the focus to be on Yuna and they knew that all the attention would be on a scantily clad Lulu if she were a party member.

Also never really saw Paine as dark or brooding either. She's just more reserved, as she's been through a lot.

Remember that she willingly joined the gullwings to find both herself and what really happened over the past 2 years. They paint her as that type cuz of the clothes she wears, but I never took her as that. By chapter 5 you see she's actually not very dark at all IMO

The creators felt that Lulu would have been too serious and would have shut Yuna and Rikku's playful natures down.

Frankly they're right. She would have had no place amongst the Gulwings, and frankly she wouldn't have had any interest.
If logic were an STD, we'd have solved quite a few problems.

D. I liked Paine.

Lulu's past was subtle and dealt with in FFX....if she were in the group, the story would have gone dead in the water. Paine wears plot armour.

Imagine Lulu jumping around and dancing in slutty outfits.

Paine was the "new Auron" of that time.

Paine is so cliche it makes me sick.

Dark, edgy, dresses in dark clothes and rarely talks. Oh what kind of name is Paine?
