This has nothing to do with
's merit as a prequel, but I wanted to share one of my favorite lines in the game. The irony is that the developers probably only included to make absolutely sure the player knows it's okay to consult Fi during the final boss, but I interpreted it on a different level.
^There's nothing deep about that line, but I thought it was really fitting due to the close relationship you have with your sword. The lead-up to the final boss was so epic. Because your foe is classy, he gives you a few moments to prepare. During that time, Impa and Groose lets you know in no uncertain terms that the fate of the land is in your hands. More than at other points during game, the music that plays at the sealed temple, and the sound of methodically rotating gears, made the setting feel sacred. Stakes are unambiguously high.
And finally, before you embark into the unknown to face the ultimate evil, Fi, essence of the Master Sword, reassures you that even in that place, she will be with you. Hence, you have nothing to fear because you possess the Master Sword!
