I Hate Optional Dungeons

I’m sure these dungeons are exciting for those who have already played Final Fantasy, but I’ve got a goal in mind. I’m not trying to blaze through all the games, but I am trying to finish them all. Therefore, I don’t want to take a lot of time fighting in unnecessary caves. So, the guy who says “chaos shrine…” who I thought was part of the final boss adventure is in fact superfluous.

The last time this happened to me was in the underwater shrine. I was fighting some pretty hard battles, only to realize that I didn’t need to be there at all. When I got back on track with the story, the bosses and enemies were *very* easy. Similarly, the last boss I beat before going to the Chaos shrine was easy, but then the shrine was difficult.

It’s nice that they include these areas, but it’s not so great that they seem to be integrated into the game in a way that suggests the are part of the main quest. For those like myself that have never played the game before, it would be nice if the side quests were more obscure. Now my party is excessively leveled into the 50s…
