-Cloud Strife's Japanese voice actor in Advent Children is Takahiro Sakurai.
-The creator of the SSB series is Masahiro Sakurai.
-Cloud's VA and SSB's creator have the same last name.
-Therefore familial ties connect Cloud and the creator of SSB.

-Masahiro Sakurai and Takahiro Sakurai are both Asian.
-Masahiro Sakurai and Takahiro Sakurai are part of the same family.
-People in Asian cultures have strong loyalties to their family.
-Therefore Masahiro Sakurai and Takahiro Sakurai have strong loyalty toward one another.

-Masahiro Sakurai and Takahiro Sakurai are loyal to one another.
-When people are loyal to each other they are willing to help each other.
-Takahiro Sakurai has not had as much demand for his talents as Cloud's voice since AC was released and he could use some extra money from another gig as Cloud.
-Therefore Masahiro Sakurai will find a way to let Takahiro Sakurai make money with his Cloud voice again.

-Sakurai will find an opportunity for Sakurai to use his cloud voice.
-Sakurai makes Super Smash Brothers, a game where the fighters speak more than any other characters.
-Sakurai wants Sakurai to use his Cloud voice a lot so he can get paid more.
-Therefore Sakurai will make Cloud playable in order to best help a fellow Sakurai in need.

Plus he was featured heavily in the opening scene of the SSE, the same scene that confirmed Ridley as a playable character.

Uhh you do realize that in Japan (and China also I think) the family name is before the given name. They have as much relation as two guys named Steve.

Uhh you do realize that in Japan they're referred to as Sakurai Masahiro and Sakurai Takahiro. They have as much relation as two guys with a surname of Jones.

Cloud was also featured quite prominently in many Mario games.

One could argue that Tifa is more important than both of them, considering Aeris doesn't get as much screentime after disc 1 and Yuffie is an optional party member.

Besides, when a game is as piss-easy as FF7, you need something to keep the battles interesting. And as anyone in Vegas will tell you, whores and gambling makes everything more interesting. Tifa brings plenty of Vegas flair to FF7 with her provocative clothing and slots-based Limit Breaks. I would argue that Tifa is more important to FF7 than any other character because even though the game has whores and gambling served separately on some occasions, Tifa delivers whores and gambling together and is almost always available for your party.
