HIGH Nagi's affinity quest. That certain cut-scene puts the main campaign to shame.

LOW A tie between the main story, the forced grinding, and anything to do with Lin.

HIGH The way the game integrates its social aspects into the final boss fight.

LOW The four chapters leading up to that boss fight.
