Agreed. No one wants NPCs that are just there for no good reason.
Any games you guys can think of that handles NPC interactions REALLY well? Pokemon came up. Any other games?
The Lunar games. They're renowned for their NPCs.
Sure, some had stupid jokes, but some contribute that to WDs translation. I never minded it, though. I loved talking to people in thier games. Also, in 2, there's a sidequest at the end to help a couple get married: it gives you an item to view the anime cutscenes. Pretty cool.
