I'm not trying to force my opinion on other people, but I can't understand why this game gets so much praise around here. The story has nothing ambitious going for it, yet everyone acts like it's the best thing ever since baked bread.
story is admittedly bare bones but the characters are charming as is the dialogue.
It also helps that the gameplay, pace, and level design are some of the best in a JRPG.
It's linear but at the same time it doesn't need to be open ended because it's fucking mario
