Don't get me wrong, LOOM was a great game. It's just that the opening sequence made me hope for mystery, spirituality and high romance. There was as much mystery as you could reasonably hope for in a Lucasarts title, a little interesting symbolism, and no romance. Clearly, my expectations were too high, but LOOM was literally the first computer game I was exposed to, I was in primary school and I didn't know what to expect.
On the other hand, the same thing happened to me with the opening sequence of FFVIII, the first Playstation game I played, and I was a few years older at the time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q09quI356sQ
The divergence between what I expected and what was delivered was even more extreme for that game.
Princess Tutu is really good though. Literary types might call me a superficial philistine, but it was the first story that fully satisfied all the expectations that the Swan Lake theme stirred in me when I heard it for the first time all those years ago when I ran LOOM. Don't believe me? Check out this line: "To those who accept everything, happiness. To those who resist everything, glory." That's genuine spirituality as far as I'm concerned.
