You know romance will make it twice the game its been, everyone even assassins need a little romance.

No.

We get force-fed enough romances in other games. Some are well done, some are not. Regardless, this is not a game where we're grooming Ezio to find him a love-interest. We're grooming Ezio to kill people and get money so he can kill more people.

If the plot dictates he seduce some of his allies, fine. I'm fine developing Ezio's family-life so we get a sympathetic picture of his revenge, but I don't want a rehashing of the Count of Monte Cristo. I feel like any side-stepping into finding Ezio a soulmate while he's setting the world on fire would be a distraction rather than an enchancement.

Whats so wrong with romance, its worked in everything else. It would just be him falling in love while her helping him, think about it. Gosh you people are so cruel to him. Just because hes an assassin doesnt mean he cant talk to people or flirt etc.

*lol* It's not like we want to doom the guy to a life of loneliness, he's welcome to be a flirty playboy all he wants.

But for this game I'd prefer he focus on the task at hand. Romance relationships work a little better in RPGs where there's dialogue control. I'd even be fine with an implied tension a la Alyx Vance in Halo 2. But it just doesn't seem like an interesting place to take the game. That's just me.

This is Assassin's Creed. Killing people. Not I Love Ezio/For The Love of An Assassin (Could've sworn that was a fanfic title last time I checked)/Christina Wants An Assassin/The Bachelor/AssassiDate/and I came up with more cheesy titles but I forgot. XD

Well with the media romance now-a-days it always like:
"I've fallen in love with you!"
"*le gasp* Then you feel the same!"
(then a scene like this, or something similar, is followed up with a sex scene.....) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
I can count how many movie/tv dramas don't have this kind of thing on one hand...
(does anyone else beside me realize that these sorts of relationships in real life never last? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif)

Or we have the:
"you are my life, I shall protect you!"
or
"I'm a monster you can't love me!"
or, my personal favorite:
"I'll prove my love to you" scenario (which usually involves, yep, more sex)

So, this kind of leaves me to wonder about the modern view on a love plot.
And as long as none of the romantic cliches above (or others that have not been mentioned)make it in to AC2, you should get no rant like this after I complete the game.

Romance is always a touchy subject. Most of the time the female is helpless and you play as her savior.

Howver, a Story of romance that would suit Ezio would be, ahem, "Him meeting a girl who can handle herself, her helping him when he's about to get stomped, and them working together. Building up a friendship the more they meet and work together."

I believe that this may possibly be the case with the thief girl, Rosa.

Romance can be done right, and when it is, it makes the story even better.

And they shouldn't sparkle either. I mean, wth, when I first found that out and Twilight in general from my twitard of a friend, I grabbed her shoulders, looked her straight in the eyes and said "I'm going to leave you here to think about what you are doing to yourself. In the meantime, I'll be off watching Underworld and reading REAL GOOD vampire novels where there aren't screaming teeny boppers and stripper glitter."

And a moment where I was playing AC with some buddies and having a discussion on Altair's character, one of them said; "Altair has as much a personality as Edward Cullen... which isn't alot". ...All that was heard in the room was the sound of the beggar lady from the tv. Do not compare Assassin's Creed with such atrocities like Twilight.

Back on topic: I agree with how romance is portrayed now a days. Three dates in and already they're like-"So are we gonna do it now?"

I'd at least like to see some development. Don't just toss it in there for the heck of it.

EDIT: I also forgot to add that Stephenie Meyer is a Templar. Brainwashing at it's finest. They have an army of fangirls and their lack of common sense makes them invulnerable to all assassin tactics. Doomed. DOOOOOOOOOOMMMEEED.

Like Marta said, let it happen in the beginning. It will add to what Ezio loses when he decides to become an assassin. If they intend to avoid the romance for the rest of the game then don't make the obvious candidate, Rosa, what the generic tough-girl who blah blah blah <span class="ev_code_RED">rant removed</span>

Basically, the characters shouldn't act "fantasy". They should have real conflicting emotions and real apprehension to opening up to people. Kind of like what real people have.

keepth3beat
09-28-2009, 01:56 PM
I agree, I don't think they should hook up Ezio and Rosa, unless they've got some DAMN good writing behind it. It's extremely rare, especially in modern media, to find a well-written pairing, and I think they're definitely going to need more than 27 hours to develop that relationship if they want to have it AND awesome assassinations AND this AND that, etc. etc.

Granted, this game *may* span over a few years, so that could aid in whatever character/relationship development they're planning, if that. But really, I think it's more fun to leave that sort of stuff ambiguous. If Ubisoft wants to leave pairing fodder throughout the script and have an up-in-the-air ending, then that's totally cool with me. It's more fun to imagine who he hooked up with, in that respect (because obviously, he's going to have to find someone eventually).

Not to say that Ezio shouldn't flirt with everything that moves, because, well... he's Italian. ;P

No, I forgot to point out that their werewolves are ten times better than Twilight's and they actually stuck to the vampire motif of burning in the sun instead of glittering. Seen how bats*** crazy the teeny boppers went when they showed the new moon trailer? Peeps who turn into werewolves should NOT look like wolves-wolves. They should be bipedal and hideous beyond all belief and all reason. But Templar commander Meyer wants every monster to look hawt (pfft not).

After seeing that Twilight poster burning, I am tempted to draw a comic of Jubair burning the Twilight books.

back on topic: Kill some people, talk up a chick, then go back to shanking people. lol, though now that you mention Rosa and after looking at the screen where he's carrying her...

Easy. He has a long term friend while he's growing up who is obviously into him but Ezio has never really looked at her in that way. He is a bit of a fun-lovin playboy while he's young, but something terrible happens to him which changes his outlook forever (ie dads death/revenge etc). Ezio goes away for some time, but fate throws them together again...

- old sparks start to fly, but we now have a older mature Ezio ready to discover his true feelings.

Man, if someone's gonna rip off something, it might as well be Monte Cristo. Damn brilliant, that book is. And really, back in those days, what else could women do but hope that their man came around to love them? Look at Romeo and Juliet, or Hamlet. Look at Les Miserables (Ugh, Cosette in the musical drives me up a wall because she's so useless).

Now granted, that's my largest complaint with current romance movies/novels/whatever, but mostly with ones set in the modern day. Because obviously in 2009, women have a lot better things to do than sit around and daydream about her tru wuv realizing his undying feelings for her. Back in the renaissance, not so much. Hell, a woman was lucky not to be considered property back in those days.

I think the perfect idea for a romance would be Ezio and a Euginny-type character from Monte Cristo. That way, she could tell him to f*ck off when she got tired of him gallivanting around and run away with her piano teacher instead. ;P

And i'm not sure how to react to that "what every girl wants" comment, because, even though I'm against revenge, I seem to be attracted to guy who are vengeful http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif He is referring to Haydee.

And they could do a lot worse than taking some ideas from the count of monte cristo (the book, the movies all kinda suck).

I think the perfect idea for a romance would be Ezio and a Euginny-type character from Monte Cristo. That way, she could tell him to f*ck off when she got tired of him gallivanting around and run away with her piano teacher instead. ;P
I think I will laugh my *** off at Ezio getting dumped. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Like I don't really care about romance I embrace it only if it's not cliche like she gets kidnapped your full of grief go save her is the whole point of a good chunk of the story if it's for a mission or 2 I don't really care.

Don't forget the anime, too! Gankutsuou was amazing.

Although, AC2 might be a bit weird if they pulled ideas from Gankutsuou. "Wait, the Renaissance is three thousand years in the future? ...And in space?!

If the plot is Ezio trying to live between a normal life and one of an Assassin then somehow it would clash, this involves relationships.

A companion or partner is fine but a full fledged relationship is just, bah, crappy.

Fighting for the lass is out. (Sorry)

But more towards the discussion, I think that the only relationships that could work out are the ones between Ezio and the various groups he can interact with, example the thieves, a girl would bound him down.

I like Altair's relationships, Al Mualim, the Bureau leaders and the assassination targets.

How about this,

ANY of your possible partners fall into the water and drown, and in the process you learn to swim.

I still don't like it, any romance, love, watever is just ruining the game in my opinion. I don't want a love story and absolutely despise it when directors try to put it in shooter and action movies, it's too old and ruins the genre

I don't think its a bad thing to have romance, it just depends how they do it...

If it subtle and well thought out I don't think romance would be bad for the story. Plus it fleshes out Ezio's character more and how the sacrifices he will make in his life for the revenge of his family will affect him...
