Who cares about the main Starfield menu?
Indeed, for most commentators, it is a secondary matter. Some see it as disrespectful even to discuss it. As the post showed Heinz House, one of Bethesda’s most famous employees, don’t stop. Hines was reported after a tongue-in-cheek commentator suggested Bethesda should focus solely on the main roster to avoid being criticized.
The Bethesda man confirmed that the menu selection was intentional and was one of the first decisions made at Bethesda. Haynes also berated Kern for his comments about the menu screen, which he said was disrespectful to the developers.
Or they designed what they wanted and that’s been our list for years and was one of the first decisions we made. Getting an opinion is one thing. Questioning a developer’s ‘caution’ because you would have done it differently is very unprofessional when it comes from another ‘developer’ “.
Mark Kern He has not yet posted a counter comment.
It’s the main Starfield menu. Yes it is spartan but what is it actually about? – If someone criticizes Starfield’s “scrappy” achievements, okay. But the main menu? As a player, you must quickly find your way around so that you can start the actual game. It’s not about more or less.
