This is going to be a weird year for GOTY for me. I know that this game will be on the top of a lot of lists but it bore me to tears. And I don't have a Wii U but if I did I bet my top 10 would look a lot different.
Jean from Lunar 2 is pretty good. A lot of physically strong female characters in games have a hard time showing femininity as well. It's kind of like writers have a hard time holding those two concepts together at the same time. Most physically strong female characters are very masculine, cold and stern. Essentially, they are stereotypical strong male characters, only female.
Jean is a character that can hold both those concepts together and the writers do a really good job with it.
