Twilight Princess' prologue is most certainly not the bees knees ('specially since bees can actually kill ya), that's certainly true. Don't worry though, it'l get much better. Maybe not the controls 'course, but a lot of that inaccurate fishing rod bollocks or point and click nonsense like with the hawk isn't really required much later on if I recall correctly.
... I recall bein' able to remove the map from the screen somehow. If it's not button-mapped, look through menus, options, etc. Could'a swore you could at least get rid of it, if not change somethin' about it. Perhaps I'm just thinking of Skyward Sword though.
Ah, and if you're really sick of derping 'n dredging through the boring prologue, there's no harm in readin' a walkthrough briefly. Just beware of spoilers, especially if you decide t' use a walkthrough later in the game.
