The ancillary stuff is ANCILLARY. Take it or leave it, this is bonus fluff, which is totally different from the meaty fluff of the video game itself.


I think the beef is that if designers had so much free time on their hands that they could spend time making up card games, chocobo racing, chocobo breeding, chocobo hot & cold, moogle e-mail, lightning bolt dodging, butterfly catching, and underwater soccer, then that time should have been spent on improving or adding to the main game. Man hours are finite during development, so unless your mini-games are damn fun (almost never the case), jettison them and make the actual game more fun/last longer.
