It appears that your "good enough" for aesthetics is quite a bit lower than mine, and that's okay.
By the way, if you're really that un-interested in the characters, why did you click on a thread about them? If it's really just to mess with me, that I can understand, because it seems to be your thing.
I stopped complaining about the lack of a tour because that would be too much work for too little benefit. A venue select would do what I want just fine.
The animations/characters are the one area that I complain about where the quick fix (blacking out the background) would be less than satisfactory.
