LOL, in what developing is concerned, anything can happen really. Would you prefer that they respected the release date with issues on the game or delay it a little more? :) I am certain it won't happen though, with such an experienced team.
Yeah, usually villains do look evil, being them in their human form or as demons or other creatures. It's interesting to see kids seeing villains, just by looking at them they immediately know if they are good or evil.
Yeah that is a big truth @overcast, gaming addiction is something terrible, so we need to enjoy gaming, but being aware at the same time from the addiction dangers. We need to have a life apart from gaming too.
I don't have problems either with random encounters, I see it as a part of the game, something to keep me at the tip of my toes. As for improving the game with no encounters, I suppose it depends on each one's preferences.
She has a manly face indeed, so I'd say she's a lesbian. At the same time, it's the first time I am thinking about it lol, whenever I am playing I am immersed in the game, and not in the sexual orientation of the characters. :)

Yeah, whether we like it or not, it's all about playability, how well the game can be played. Awesome graphs but hard to play is usually a no good game. This applies also for more characters as you mention @Emma kwamboka.
I don't have a particular suggestion for you, but if you are considering playing FF13 again it's because you had a good experience. So why not do it all over again, or simply try doing it in a different way? That's the beauty of gaming, we can always try it from a different angle.
