It's completely up to you whether you just want to play Cupid and set up the couples you think are cutest, or go full eugenicist and engineer the most powerful warrior babies. The turn-based strategy is compelling enough to distract you from your romantic meddling, with endless combinations of moves, weapons, and characters to mix up into your very own flavor of tactical mayhem. Just don't mess up if you're playing Classic Mode - because once a character dies, they're dead forever, and you can't marry them off any more. 'Tragedy' doesn't even begin to describe it.
This reminds me of the way roasting brussel sprouts with olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and fresh ground black pepper totally revolutionized my experience and opinion of the tiny cabbagey thingies. (I had only had them the way mother fixed them, which was boiled (and probably from frozen, not fresh), with the de riguer southern seasoning of all things veggie, meaning some kind of pig (anything from saved bacon grease to fat back, streak-o-lean, etc.).
I use parmesan cheese and crumbled crunchy bacon bits as my garnish on the brussel sprouts.
I’ll definitely be trying the broccoli this way. I have roasted it, but didn’t do the same garnish. I like my brussel sprouts and my broccoli browned a good bit—I guess it is the caramelization that hooks me.
