I dunno why you are being so agressive. I made this thread for fun. Things don't need to be like that, as you are taking this more seriously than I am doing. Okay?
Saddly, just because we liked it doesn't mean it's canon. I like the ending where Jowy dies and Riou got the Rune of Beginning, but saddly, that's not canon(Thanks Suikogaiden!). It's probably due the fact that all Good Endings of Suikoden are canon, since is heavy impled on the sequels that's is the case for all games.
We are at the mercy of the devs, and it seems easier for them work on a post game where the good ending was reached, since, after all, I believe would be hard to work with a Canon where one of the Main Characters didn't put his heart at it, because the Prince would hold the Idiot Ball if the didn't took the advise of his strategist(which in the Suikoden Universe, might as well be the 28th True Rune by themselves, because they are THAT effective) and decided to defend the castle.
Sure, it's makes Roy a badass, but makes the Prince a selfish fool, or in the worse case, a simpleton as a trade, and I don't know if is that what the Devs want for "canon". I think this case was sacrificing a character so the other could shine.
I wished Roy death was on the normal path of the game.
