Yeah, Luna's treatment really bothered me; even though I ended up adoring the game, its treatment of women on the whole was pretty bad. There's a lot you can do with the gentle, self-sacrificing healer character--see Yuna in FFX--but she needed more to do on-screen, and they needed to really build on her and show her flaws as well as her kindness. This is why the in-game romance really didn't work for me, even though I think Noct/Luna has plenty of potential--they had an idealized childhood romance, and never had the chance to grow past that and show how they actually interact as adults. And the tragic missed opportunity of their relationship would have worked fine, if there were other female character who were more than plot devices who were given the same attention as the main male characters. As it is, it's clear that Luna was written as just a footnote to Noct's story, and she could have been much more.

def agree. as much as i was frustrated by luna's situation, (as someone who hasn't watched the movie) i felt like she wasn't even developed enough for me to care about her relationship with noctis. and noctis seems very hesitant about their engagement so the scene with him and luna on the throne just kind of landed like a dead weight for me. i remember thinking "well if ya'll had just give her a chance i'd be sad right now but i'm just kinda bitter"??

i still loved the game. it just kind of surprised and shocked me because usually ff does a better job with its female characters. still not the best but better than this!
