Hi. When you beat Sephiroth, do you get to go back to the main world to finish undone things? Ex. Side quests?

Nope, it's not like those type of games, and I think it suits FFVII's storyline not to be.

Well, yes and no.

No in that you don't get dumped back into the game world after beating Seph, but yes in that you can always just load your save again after beating Seph (they don't let you save after Seph).

Agreed. I really don't like when these things are forced in for gameplay convenience. A well-made RPG gives you a big rush of emotion with the ending since it is the close of a 40 hour adventure. If you spit the player back out on the map in spite of everything in the ending and say "just keep playing!" you're really devaluing everything you built up.

Depending on the ending, it can work. I just hate when you have an uncontinuable ending and yet the game spits you back out right before the point of no return as if nothing even happened. It's surreal af and totally kills it for me.

If I want to reload my save after that, let me do it so it doesn't feel like the game just erased its own ending from canon.

Say you’re at the North cave and you don’t beat Sephiroth, than can you still leave the cave to the overworld?

As long as you haven't passed the point of no return, which is pretty obvious. I don't remember the exact dialog but they make it pretty clear.
