Happy Valentines Day!

And, in honor of the holiday, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite couples:
 The Prince and Elika. (Spoilers)

No, they're not my FAVORITE couple, but I do like them and I haven't given Prince of Persia 2008 much love. 

We never learn the Prince's name.  But he drops hints throughout the game about his identity.  He's an orphan who lost his parents in some war when he was a child.  Elika has been forbidden to leave her home.  And yet, we see the two bond together.

The Prince stated in the beginning that he would leave as soon as he could.  He did not care that an evil force was trying to take over the world. Elika found him annoying.

At the end of the game, she hid that fact that she would die in order to succeed.  The prince defied her requests and he brought her back to life in order to give them a better chance to face down the big bad.  This is something the Prince from the beginning of the game would have done.

They have great chemistry, and due to the more free flowing nature of the game, it can be a bit harder to see it develop but there is no denying that the Prince and Elika do care for each other by the end.
