You could, but I don't think that would be accurate. That statement wasn't meant to be a defense of what Zelda is, but simply starting that BG&E was a pretty generic story on an already-seen-that gameplay formula.
Or you could look at it as a Zelda that actually has voices, dialog, development, plot pacing, non-midi music, and emotional involvement. There is actual motivation to get things done.
Like I said, it's not that it's bad. But it's not really that great either.

I'm enjoying this a ton more than I did Twilight Princess on Wii. The platforming in this game, coupled with the computer coop stuff puts it in a different category than Zelda, IMO. To the guy that only played the first 30 minutes, you need to give it more time than that. I thought the first hour was slow, but after the factory level, I was totally hooked. It definitely deserves all the praise it gets.

But BG&E is a really good game. I have to pick it up again and finish it. I got stuck somewhere, got frustrated and never picked it up again. Again, the game deserves all the praise that it gets.
