After much agonizing, I forewent the Wii version of Twilight Princess and picked up the Gamecube version. So at the very least, the controls are agreeable. But I am finding that there are things about the game itself which are reducing my enjoyment to the point that playing the thing and solving the puzzles becomes more of a task to get out of the way than actual entertainment.
My specific question: Is there ever going to be a point in this game where Link is not saddled with a manifestly annoying, audacious, game-ruining, rotund midget named Midna? Everything about that irritating little twerp, from its abrasive dialogue to the fact that the completely inexplicable wolf jumping relies upon it, bugs the hell out of me, and destroys the gaming experience. I'll keep playing as long as there's a point where I no longer have to suffer moments when it shows its squat form to offer more abusive dialogue.
I'll even pretend that the rest of the game isn't deeply flawed.
