Redeem? Who said it's redeeming anything?
I think people are fundamentally misunderstanding this >___________>;
Let's say Lucina and Marth are literally the exact same character except for their textures (i.e. appearance) and their voices. Would you rather not have Lucina in this case? See, even in these circumstances it would still make sense to have her be her own character because of a VASTLY different look and different voices--she just couldn't pass as Marth and it'd be too different to be played off as just a "reference". However gameplay-wise the characters would be the exact same.
So what it sounds like is clones are inherently bad and you should never have them even if it means allowing you to use characters that otherwise wouldn't be in. So fuck we shouldn't even have Claus because he's not really his own character he's just a palette swap of Lucas, that's not fair.
Whoever said Lucina had to be in? Whoever said she needed to be her own completely unique character? That's just people's own unreasonable expectations. Which is all the more reason I'd be happy if Lucina got taken out, because it'd be a huge slap in the face to everyone who complained not to take shit for granted. Sakurai tries to do everyone a favor by not only giving you a texture swap, but even putting in the voices and making it so you can play as "Lucina". It's practically fan service in a game that is fan service (and also a great game in its own right). And in return, people repay him by complaining, bitching, and whining. Those people don't deserve jack.
Being disappointed is fine, it's when people have to act so immature and annoying about it that it becomes a problem.
Naturally it's a much bigger problem across other parts of the internet than here.
And the problem extends to not only this but things like... say, Club Nintendo's Elite status rewards, which were just announced. People feel entitled to physical rewards, but that's just their own flawed thinking. Nintendo puts out lots of great digital rewards instead and all you here is whining and complaining. Those people don't deserve jack. If you don't like it, that's fine, go ahead and send a form to Nintendo asking them to change. But don't go starting a shitstorm like you're some 5 year old on a temper tantrum. Draw the line somewhere before you look like an unreasonable idiot.
*sighs* I'm done, sorry but I am so sick of the internet right now, if you guys weren't awesome I would have probably died from not knowing more than a handful of decent human beings on the internet
