ZD writes: Princess Zelda, the very princess we have named the legend after. Next to Link, she is arguably the series’ most important character, appearing in almost every game usually as the very reason for our hero’s long quest. As the series has grown, the character of Zelda has grown with it, with her evolving from more of a symbolic goal into a human being with feelings and goals of her own. The more the player feels for the Zelda character, the more satisfying that final rescue is.
So which games did it best, and which games fell short?
