In almost any RPG with a party, particularly a JRPG there will be a moment where the party has to split up. . This happens in other games of other genres as well, but RPGs are the most notorious for it. On one hand, It can be for a logical reason like in Final Fantasy X where they had to split up because Tidus, Rikku and Wakka were the only ones that can swim. Then again It can also be irritating after you’ve split up for the umpteenth time in a game like Tales of Symphonia. It makes you feel like you’re watching an episode of Scooby Doo.
