I'm surprised you didn't mention the ice temple battle squares
ah yes!!!! this too. definitely had to use a faq there after wandering around and was ready to quit. if it were only one snag this bad i could get over it. but the fact that there are several...at least 3-4 that i can remember just ruins the idea of me ever giving it another go.
again...not to totally knock the game because combat was top notch and i even got into the story as well.
