ZI writes: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was a fantastic game, filled with epic battles, an enormous world, and a...horribly flawed storyline. Each week we'll be looking at one of these flaws to determine what went wrong and why, as well as to discuss ideas of how the tale could have been rewritten to fix these problems and strengthen the story as a whole. ...Preferably without drastically departing from the original storyline of the game, but I make no promises.
Some of the biggest and most blatant issues with Twilight Princess revolve around how it handles – or rather, mishandles – some of its most important characters: the children of Ordon Village. We'll be covering these problems over the next three (that's right, three!) weeks, but to start with, we're only looking at a single scene: one which holds the utmost importance in the game...and which, in retrospect, completely fails at its task.
Without further ado, let's discuss the children's kidnapping.
