Miyamoto seems like a very smart person. It's a shame he's so negative about the story aspect. I'd just like to walk up to him and tell him I want to be emotionally involved in my games; make them more like novels and movies with deep characters and plot twists. Tales of Symphonia is one of my all time favorite games only because of this. I hope that Koizumi gets more power in the company, even taking over when Miyamoto retires, so that we can see some changes. Something makes me think that Miyamoto sees games the way they were back on the SNES, with an implied story and gameplay-oriented style. Today, though, you can have the best of both worlds. It sort of seems like a shame.
