You misunderstood what I wrote. I enjoyed playing Breath of Fire, I just didn't like the terrible ending which is why I use an edited screen shot of the ending scene where Ryu and Sara are walking home together in the sunset. Instead of the real depressing ending which didn't really make much sense in my opinion... This is what I meant all along.Ah, point taken. I must admit that although I remember the begining of Breath of Fire very clearly, I completely forgot the end, probably because I started the game many times but completed it only once. I however clearly remember that there was many story scenes in the straight begining of the game, and then nothing at all until close to the end of the game. It was obvious that they went out of inspiration after having designed the main plot elements of the begin/end of the game, and let the middle of the game be more Dragon Quest like, where there is just quests and no story at all. Don't get me wrong, I loved the original Breath of Fire and it was in my opinion way supperior to it's 2 sequels (not that they're bad either, the original is just better). I now have to play Breath of Fire IV and retry to play Dragon Quarter.
I think Sara the hero's older sister plays a major role in the intro, and then vanished completely through the story. I didn't remember her dying at all so it shouldn't have shocked or depressed me. Since you have missed her for 99% of the game I probably didn't care about her anymore when I reached the point where she suddently reappears. I guess character's death is a common theme in the Breath of Fire series, as far I know all 3 I completed had that.
