Yeah, it's such an obvious pun that I was sure someone else had made it before. :P

Yes... it was probably one of the weakpoints... they had so many characters that they tried to develop stories for (even short ones), that it kinda weakened the individual's characters.

Plus, the way the battle system was designed, unless you spent a LOT of time swapping out party members between boss battles, you pretty much wanted to stick with 6-7 characters to fight/level with, and just pick up the others (most optional) as a completionist / side quest reward.

That being said, you can't even GET every character on your first playthrough: there are several branching story paths (which remerge later), and you can only get SOME of the characters on each path, so it actually takes 3 playthroughs (2 New Game +'s) to get every single playable charater in your party at the same time. (thankfully, newgame+ gives you a fastforward option)

I still loved the game though XD

CHRONO CROSS SPOILER ALERT

You don't get the characters immediately...not at the start at least.
Basically on your 2nd playthrough, you'll want to go through the story making different choices (and picking up the characters couldn't get the first time.)

After you get the Chrono Cross (which can be used as an overworld item as well as in battle) you need to go back to a portal entrance where reality breaks down a bit XD

Using the Chrono Cross where the portal is pulls in all characters that you had when you beat the game the newgame+ was started from. (Hence the 3 playthroughs to get everyone, as one of the 'choices' in the story has 3 paths, each with a unique character. You grab the other two in your first two playthroughs, pick up the 3rd on the last playthrough, and when you pull in everyone, you've got the complete set =3

(There's also one character who's normally LEFT your party before the final battle, but since you can fight the end boss almost anytime on newgame+, you just have to make sure you beat them in one playthrough before the character has left)

END SPOILER

thanks for that explanation, not too much of a spoiler
I really need to play chrono cross, and stuff like new game + makes it more awesome to me.
kinda wish a lot of other JRPGs did that *cough* valkyrie profile *cough*
