Xenosaga Vs. Front Mission 4?
Picked up Front Mission 4 for the PS2 this weekend, and noticed it uses "Durandal" (code name for a research facility) and "Elsa" (the name of the main female character). In Xenosaga (one of my favorite games of all time, with a sequel appearing this year or the next), the Durandal and Elsa were two of the primary ships. Since both games contain mechs (FM4 far more heavily than Xenosaga), the similarities strike me as being more than just coincidence. Veiled threat, knowing acknowledgement (as R&C: GC does with J&D), or something more? Any more similarities I'm missing?
