Like Pearls, I was kind of hoping that Phoenix and Maya would get together in the end. I mean, Iris is cute and all, but she lost a bit of her appeal to me when it turned out she was an accessory to murder.
I wonder why so many think they should be together. Ok, for fanfiction it might be nice if you like Maya.
But there's not one single line in the game which hints at such a relationship, neither from Maya nor from Phoenix.
little spoiler-wannabe ahead:
I think Phoenix feelings for Maya are similar to Godot's for Maya - they feel responsible for her because she is Mia's sister. And both of them liked and respected Mia. Both guys couldn't help her, so they wanted to make up for their "failing". Godot's main emotion might be guilt, but Phoenix has a friendship with her. Friendly feelings. If a male person likes a female person it is not automatically love. They kinda get along. And that's it. Sorry if this explanation is missing sappy romantic stuff. (And honestly - those who like Maya: you would like to see her together with a man who likes her but does not take her serious at all?)

Anyways, the relationship between Phoenix/Maya is like that of a brother/sister relationship --- Sign my petition: Edit for Stickies Only:http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=7&topic=39877751
Welcome to the internets, where a guy who is close/best friends with a girl but harbors no romantic feels for her is automatically swings the other way. --- gs68 / Ray* Technically, you don't have to follow the rules. You just have to be ready to face the consequences.
