What games did you love but think it failed cuz of the character design?

Arcana Heart 3

I actually like most of the characters designs, but I know a lot of people didn't play it, even if they are "hardcore" about fighting games because "omlulz paedoboo loliconz henteye gaemz r not 4 mee amirite brobrobrofist no homo!!!1!" despite the fact it has a very diverse and balanced cast with more unique play options than any other non-tag fighter (23 characters x 23 Arcana choices) and a whole host of mechanics/features that generally make fighting games fun (chains, supers, powered up modes, mobility, manual cancels, bursts, easy mode, good online code).

Lost Oddyssey and JRPGs in general. Jansen was hilarious for the first half of Lost Oddyssey before they decided to wussify him.

Force Unleashed was pretty fun, but I didn't like the generic design of the protagonist (can't even remember his name). Especially bothersome because in the old Jedi Knight games Kyle Katarn was pretty cool, and even the Imperial sidekick/love interest Juno Eclipse had a decent personality and design.


Sorry..."Juno Eclipse" you remember...but freakin Starkiller you don't?

The Force Unleashed.

Had fun with both of them, but Starkiller just doesn't do it for me. Underdeveloped and just not very interesting.

Now that you point it out... Haha. Apparently so! I couldn't think of it at all and didnt want to cheat with a Search. Emphasizes how forgettable he was to me. That'd make sense, it was Skywalker's original name in the first drafts, right?

Yes, that's right.

See, I kinda liked Starkiller in the first game. The first game had an interesting story with an arc for the main character (bland generic bald space marine design notwithstanding).

It was the second game that blanded everything up.

I hope you mean personalities, because the characters are so overdesigned its ridiculous.

Definitely going with Lost Odyssey. The characters, especially Gongora, were hideous. I couldn't buy into a villain that looks like that.
