I'm sorry to be reviving this (well, it's not that old anyway), but I really wanted to give my opinion.
The first time I played through the game, I did it with Saren, and I romanced Loren. It was a really sweet and beautiful relationship. I really liked it, and felt the connection between the two characters. I was chasing Myrth too, so the scene Myrth vs Loren was a really tough choice. I have to admit I saved to see the two outcomes... Loren sad was really... devastating. But that scene was just great! It really shows that not everthing is always good and happy. Love can be a really sad and hard thing too. And that scene just showed that perfectly.
I shed a few tears with SarenxLoren. I think normally it would have been at the ending, right? With the first or third option.
I think Loren is the best love interest because it goes really well with the plot, and it just feels right. And how her character grows slowly through the game is really good. And isn't she just really sweet sometimes?
The romance with Myrth is just SO cute and sweet. I loved it. She's really lovely. She's a little innocent, and pure, and... just lovely. I think that's the kind of character you do when you try to atract male gamers, but it felt so much better with her. She wasn't just "I'm here so that you can like me. Oh, and I'm also hot (that she is
)". It felt like a real character and not just an excuse to give the player a quick "romanceable" character. I can say that does not happen in all games.
So, point for Myrth.
And last but no less... Chambara. Oh, Chambara, my sweet dark witch. I LOVE Chambara. I really do. It was a really tough choice between her and Loren in the poll.
What can I say? I obviously like how she flirts with Saren all the time. But she was a misunderstood character since the beginning. She's not evil at all! She helped Loren without asking for anything in return, and even also didn't want her gratitude because she was helping indirectly. I think deep down she is the fragile and vulnerable girl in need of someone that she one time says she isn't
But I think the moment when I started to really love her was when I realized how much she could care for another, how she needed someone (even if she wanted to admit it). I'm talking about the scene when she confronts Myrth.
That one time when you have to chose one... I chosed Myrth. Almost without having to think about it.
And that's when she says it. Something like "How would you love someone like me when you love things beautiful as a flower?" She was really sad and hurt. And I was, too. Those words broke my heart. It was really painful and made me realize how wrong I were about her. So, Ironically, I learned how beautiful she was as a person when I rejecter her.
And I really think I like her more over Loren.
Yes, I think I do.
So... Let's be clear. I like Chambara more than Loren as love interest, but
... I think the romance itself between Saren and Loren is a little better. More charming and... realistic, maybe?
So I'm changing my mind and giving my vote to Chambara (because the poll is about love interest and not romance as a whole). How would I like to hold her in my arms!
Gosh, this got really long! I'm sorry! I doubt anyone would read all this much
But well, I wanted to say what I thought.
