The game does a bad job of pushing the player to Yen . Especially considering some of its design choices.True. But she understands that she can't influence his feelings. She wouldn't want him to be unhappy in order for her to be happy. She doesn't intend to live with them, and she would certainly respect his choice.
You want the game to force player even more into choosing Yen?
But at least it has the "balls" to throw things against the player with Yen. The Ceris dialogue, the strange dialogue with Eskel for example. At least some level of doubt thrown against the player.

You are giving Ciri WAAAAAY too much credit. I mean most experienced in life and grown in healthy families and peaceful times peoples cant act like that (at least not fully).
Well seems like the type of game design you like is DEFINITELY not the one I like...Caring for Yen, doesn't mean she wouldn't be accepting of what makes Geralt happy imo.
No i don't think reactivity has to make the player feel uncomfortable. Don't think choices lose their strength or meaning if reactivity isn't accompanied by forced cheap drama.
For what it is worth, most games are designed for you
Exactly. Like a real person.In my opinion it would be selfish from Ciri to attack Geralt's choice just because she loves Yen more and feels that he should be with her. She may not like that Geralt choose Triss, but her acceptance makes sense to me, she simply respects Geralt choice. We have yet to see how the added scene will look, TW3 has nice facial expressions, maybe her face will be sad or surprised or she will indicate it by body language that that is not what she expected, but in any case I don't think she should make any scene about it.
So you agree with all I said? I mean this is what I understand from your comment now
WHy not make a scene out of it at first at least? Can work out good. Can make the romance with Triss better, at least a bit deeper. Make Ciri more of a character rather than a plot device.
Make Geralt and the player acquire some of their "balls" for a lack of a better phrase at the moment.

Here I am arguing for one of the things gaming does that no other art form can do quite as well...
