Especially considering the fact that the opposite twin you pick has an obvious personality and character.

Just a lazy design choice.

I’m sick of it.

At one point it was an interesting design decision to make us feel one with a main character but the Japanese have now run this trope into the ground and are using it as a lazy crutch for good writing.

Agreed. Seemed pretty lame. Especially considering they intend to make this game a series, why would you have such a boring main character.

Well, the character is not completly silent (and i dont mean the grunts) but when he/she speaks may be considered a spoiler so look at your own discretion. It is not a big spoiler though.

your character narrates the epilogue

I'm fine with silent protagonists in general, but it did fall a little flat in this game.

Especially (file 10 spoilers) the fact that Akira tried to talk you down when you fused with your legion, but when they fused with theirs you just shrug and beat them up. The poor kid just needs some support.

In this instance...yeah, there's no reason for a silent protag.
Link is the only good silent protag for years, you know why?
HES EXPRESSIVE!
He never/rarely talks, but he reacts.
Little things like shivering in a cold climate in a particular way (it even varies from game to game) add way more character.
Than just 'blank face that never reacts to anything in any way'

Seriously japanese devs, look at link, then look at your silent protag AND SEE HOW YOU F*ED UP!
Put this in your sig if you are against having another fire fighting starter.
Actually don't, gamefreak doesn't care about gamefaqs signatures.
