Definitely. The intro was so much better in TSS. I think it represented what Lunar 1 was all about, beating the odds up against formidable evil. The intro was very unique compared to other RPGs which is a plus. Like you said, SSSC was way too sugary and clean, when Lunar isn't about that, but in the remake I think they tried to make it that way. Luna doesn't stay with her parents, Alex's parents and town get sent to the Talon mines, the dragons end up getting killed, ect. The hardship was sort of taken out and replaced with something that, I guess, they thought would appeal to more gamers. Sort of like how Alex went from playing the "uncool" harp to the ocarina that Zelda made popular.
After watching the intros again, the lyrics are so much better in TSS.
