Follow TV Tropes
I want to dispute the Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess examples, or really, all the video game examples involving trekking across the overworld. The overworld trekking is supposed to be part of the whole experience, and they usually give you things to do in the meantime.
Methinks your argument works. I would support the removal of the entries in question, although I note it's just our opinion.
Maybe I'll make a forum topic about it before I do anything hasty.
Video Game examples have been cut per TRS thread completely.
Why is this "Your Mileage May Vary". Because it is considered negative? Tropes Are Not Bad but this trope most definitely exists.
No, because it's very much subjective whether a given episode fits this trope.
The WWTBWWTBAM family of game shows does not require a YMMV section. If there's a nearly-identical trope, it should be moved there. If not, a page should be created.
The Spiderman example, is, as written, not padding. It's Arc Fatigue, Kudzu Plot and The Chris Carter Effect. Yes, it's stretching a story, but, it misses part of the definitions entirely, mainly, the very first line Padding is a moment in a story which could have easily been removed from the plot without affecting the story significantly. Those moments DID affect the story (admitably, in complex, confused and often retconned ways). While I do not doubt there is padding in the clone saga, the example, as currently written, fails to show an example of padding. I thus removed it.
What are musical forms of padding?
Dragging out the V7 chord for a-g-e-s before giving it a resolution.
Trying to think of a particular example of a Bollywood film where the first half seems to be almost entirely musical sequences, that could arguably fit this trope. Can't think of which... anyone with any ideas of films where this applies?
