Well if you're going to put it that way, any RPG can be attributed to certain clichÃƒÂ©s, such as "save the princess", "defeat the bad guy" and so forth. We also know most stories involve a small group of "rebels" fighting an "evil empire". So what? The point is the themes explored during the telling of the story. Final Fantasy arguably should continue to explore the same basic storyline, albeit with different execution each time. That's what makes it Final Fantasy.
