** One explanation could be that he didn't know about the sages, and was tainting the temples for other reasons...His curse on the Forest Temple kept the Deku Tree Sprout from growing and allowed monsters free reign throughout Kokiri Forest; he was using the Fire Temple to keep the Gorons imprisoned until his minions fed them to Volvagia; the Water Temple was supposed to to be a sacred place of worship for the Zoras, so implanting Morpha there as the root of the curse on Zora's Domain seemed like a good idea to begin with; Ganondorf would've wanted some control over his home territory, which the Spirit Temple was able to provide quite conveniently; and Bongo Bongo retreating to the Shadow Temple was just a coincidence, since Ganondorf never seemed that interested in Kakariko Village during his rule. As for Link, Ganondorf intentionally let him run free out of hope that eventually Zelda would slip up and reveal herself - the fact that the temples he was questing through all were filled with monsters capable of killing him was all the better; if Link dies, Ganondorf just takes his Triforce piece and sooner or later goes the ''Wind Waker'' route of kidnapping people in order to find Zelda.

[[/folder]] [[folder: Ganondorf & the Temples]] * How was Ganondorf supposed to know about Link going to liberate the Sages? Even if he knew to pacify the Sages by corrupting their temples, when would he realize Link's quest was to restore the temples to their former glory and free the Sages?

[[folder:Male king]] * Why does the game expect any woman to believe that, in a race almost entirely consisting of women (the Gerudos), they would pick a MAN to be their king every time? Sounds a lot like male fantasy. ** This sounds less like a headscratcher and more like a complaint/agenda gripe. And that's really a faulty description -- it's not that the women "pick a MAN to be their king every time." What happens is once every hundred years, a male is born to the tribe, and according to their traditions, legends, teachings, etc., that man is their king. Them "picking" has nothing to do with it.

** Easy. On top of being an incredibly powerful mage who could pose a threat to Ganondorf, she was also a strategist who would be smart enough to run away and hide if it was to her advantage (as she did for 7 years). He'd want her out of the game as soon as possible. Meanwhile Ganondorf knew Link being the embodiment of courage would come to Ganondorf anyway and since he was still underestimating Link's power he thought he could toy with him.

** Even if his intentions were noble, it still doesn't excuse Ganondorf's methods. In the end, his people are worse off than before, Hyrule is a CrapSackWorld, and it's clear at this point that he only wanted power. And considering he did so by ''stealing a third of a holy relic'' and used it for malevolent purposes, it would seem logical that the goddesses choose a hero to defeat him. Although the retribution wouldn't come from a "nine-year-old:" remember, Link was sealed away until he was of proper age to become the Hero of Time. Though it's still embarrassing, getting beat by a teenager isn't as bad as getting beat by a little kid.

** Remember that Ganondorf is a ManipulativeBastard; if anyone brought forth accusations against him, he could simply lie his way out of trouble. By revealing the Triforce, the King may have good reason to interrogate Ganondorf about these events: if and when he inevitably cracks, the King will have all the evidence needed for Ganon's execution.

** Maybe she's trying to help the cow get out. RuleOfFunny, possibly.

** Well...alright, then. But doesn't that make the king seem like kind of a dumbbell, if he needed Link to show him a fragment of raw godpower in order to believe what could've been told to him by a handful of his own subjects?
