Does this game have a lot of side quests?

My Dad is just about to finish up Xenoblade Chronicles, and he is looking for another game to play. I've been hearing a lot of good things about this game, so I'm thinking about suggesting it to him; but I have a few questions first.

1. Does this game have a lot of side content?

2. Does this game have a lot to do in terms of powering yourself up?

3. How long is the main story?
4. How long would it take to complete everything in the game?

1. A crapload.
2. Yes.
3. 40-60 hours.

Cool, sounds like he could really like the game then.

4. Around 80-100 hours. The post-game content is terrific.

There are something like 180 side quests, which vary from bounty hunts, crafting, solving broken hearts, fetching items and killing X amount of Y unit.

It's also worth noting that you'll probably solve a good many of the side quests instantaneously the moment you "find out" about them, because you'll already have the item and/or "thing" that the person needs, so you can just grab your reward and go.
