Why are the cutscenes in final fantasy games so short? :/

I remember when I played Xenosaga, there were cutscenes that were like 45 minutes long. o.o The cutscenes in most final fantasy games are nothing in comparison.

Are you saying short cutscenes is a bad thing?

probably cause the long cutscenes put a damper on xenosaga sales.

You can always just, you know, pause the game.

B-but the clock keeps running in FFX even when paused...
It makes me feel uncomfortable.

In all future games the pause button will be removed.
No more breaks!

That was done on purpose.
It's supposed to make you feel more immersed.
Time goes on in the virtual world, even without you.
