I would, first off, do like they did in XII and greatly tone down the romantic aspects of the game. It's not that they were bad, it's jus' that Square always laid it on too thick. I would also go wit a female heroine, I feel that it's time for a change up. I think that a FF game wit a female lead would b interesting (and no I'm not forgettin' FFVI). A female lead hasn' been done in FF for quite some time and my story would have one. It would b less of a political or environmental story ('cause they've already been done) and more of a character driven one, although it may have some political or environmental undertones ta it. And I've always loved a mystery and my story would contain plenty of that. It would also have more twists and turns then u could shake a stick at, jus' not too much ta where the player loses track. This is jus' my idea though.
