Relaxing? I struggle to think of many more infuriating experiences in gaming!! I also spent virtual weeks in that b@*&£#d place, but my time was spent combing every last inch trying to find the 'random location' sinking lure. Never ever, despite completing it three times on N64 did i ever find the thing - i gave up and decided it was an urban myth created purely to piss me off...
It was years later before i learnt you had to catch a specific sized fish before it would appear
EDIT: Should add that i agree with the 'Zelda magic' thing. I should be tired to death of the franchise by now but each one is magical in its own right, even the ones i didn't get on with so well (wind waker) are hard to knock in terms of quality & execution. Shigsy is just an absolute legend, firstly for creating the franchises he has but also for reinventing them. Not sure he can take 100% credit but i'm not going to list everyone else who may have contributed!!
