* There are several of these in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. The first involves a woman who has fallen for the bandit who robbed her, and wants help tracking him down. Surprisingly, it turns out well. Another in the Tribunal expansion involves helping a woman who is far too busy with her work to meet men find a husband.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has the quest ''The Book of Love'' where the player helps out 3 couples, including [[spoiler: a pair of dead lovers]], get together.
** Much earlier on, you can resolve a love triangle in Riverwood between a woman and two local males, whose plans of wooing the girl involves giving her a letter that makes the other look bad. Alternatively, you can get the tell the woman about this, causing her to get angry at the two and instead falling for you.

husband. You can find 3 men to set her up on a date with. Whether the date is successful or not is up to a [[LuckBasedMission random chance]]; you can give each of the men advice which increases the odds of success, but never above 67%. If successful, one man [[DudeWheresMyReward gives you nothing as a reward]], the second gives you an enchanted belt, and the third gives you the artifact weapon "the [[LethalJokeItem Bi-Polar Blade]]."

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' has one too. It's played with though: firstly, you have two possible options, you can either give Cawlin's love letter to the object of his affection, or you can end up giving it to [[MythologyGag the hand in the toilet.]] Secondly, [[spoiler: it turns out the NPC he likes actually has feeling for ''another'' NPC, and he returns them. Giving her the letter results in ''them'' getting together and Cawlin being left in tears.]] Both paths give you the same reward, so you don't need to worry about LostForever.

* In ''{{Aion}}'', a man has you collect an item to give the woman he loves, but once you have them, [[spoiler: she says that she can't love a man that doesn't have the nerve to bring them himself.]]

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has a few twists to the formula. The questgiver is actually asking for help on behalf of a friend of hers. Like in it's predecessor, it ends in failure. But mostly because the client decides she'd rather get with the player instead... then the ''questgiver'' gets jealous and decides she likes you too!

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has a few twists to the formula. One of the first is a compulsory quest to help the subordinate of a team member, that involves getting a favor from an alien craftsman that comes with a steep price; [[AllThatGlitters 10 pizzas]]. Doesn't seem like much until the shop owner charges you 10,000 credits for them. Another has gotten the girl with little issue already, but needs your help convincing her ProudWarriorRace father. But the third is the doozy; The questgiver is actually asking for help on behalf of a friend of hers. Like in it's predecessor, it ends in failure. But mostly because the client decides she'd rather get with the player instead... then the ''questgiver'' gets jealous and decides she likes you too!

** Also, Ronald Laren would like The Nuka-Cola Challenge to be this, but it doesn't work out that way. As in, you have the option of giving him the dough after fetching it so that he can use it to take advantage of her naiveté but this nets you bad karma, even though he doesn't succeed because the target is too stupid to understand his advances. If you want to be evil and have a female character, ''you can tell him to fetch the dough himself by proposing a threesome''; he rushes off eagerly, only to get killed.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' has the ''very'' long Kafei and Anju quest, where it appears that Kafei has gone missing just before his marriage with Anju. It's not as simple as it looks, and you can't even do this quest until very deep into the main game.

* Many a ''HarvestMoon'' fan have done this, due to the fact that the games have multiple [[TheRival romance rivals]].
** And, in the offshoot ''RuneFactory'' series (think HarvestMoon combined with ''Zelda''), your PC has his own MatchMakerQuest.
*** In ''RuneFactory2'', a successful marriage unlocks 2/3 of the game
*** In ''RuneFactory3'', it is the only way to win the game.
