Sometimes, the grind of saving a kingdom or slaying the last robots can just get to a hero, you know? Side activities, the second cousin of the side mission, rarely do anything more than provide a brief moment of respite or a fun mini game for the player to distract themselves for a few moments to bring some variety to a title.
