Oh, without a doubt. The FS series seems more like an afterthought. Something fun, but not something to be taken as serious as their larger titles.
If they did this game Phantom Hourglass style (3D on a classic 2D plane), but with WW calibur graphics (meaning the real thing, and not a "DS close enough" thing), then it would work brilliantly.
Took the words right out of my mouth. This game is really fun and entertaining but I often forget its relation with the LOZ series. This doesn't make it any less of a videogame, it's one of my favorites, but it just doesn't click with all of the other Zelda games.
