Rationale for FFX Sidequests / Minigames

Snerk. I want to rescue this from a deep-down buried comment in my Bahamut Is Not Your Friend post.

Gameplay and story separation is a tricky thing to deal with in writing, haha. I've been fiddling around with the Venus Sigil and its significance for a later chapter in Guardian but I had to come up with a better reason for her finding it than "And then Lulu made Tidus go out in the rain and dodge 200 bolts of lightning." ;)

my reply: 
HAHAHA now I'm imagining Lulu sending Tidus out into the rain because she's tired of his clueless questions or has caught him sneaking into Yuna's room. 

Rikku starts giggling after the door shuts. "Well, that's one way to get him out of your hair. Think I could trick him into chasing butterflies all over Macalania?"

"Have Kimahri request it," Lulu says tonelessly. "Tidus might suspect something, if it comes from you." 

"Wow!" Rikku stares in appalled admiration. "Lulu, you're way more evil than I thought."

Hahahahaha! :D Now I am convinced that collecting all the parts of the Celestial Weapons was just done as punishment for Tidus.

LOL! That is a perfect reason! ... here Tidus, go race on an overgrown chicken ... ... catch butterflies ... play red light/green light with cactaurs ... It makes so much SENSE that way!

Thinking about it, I think this'd be the more serious rational I'd go with for lightning dodging: at some point offscreen Rikku mentions being super-curious about what other things the tourism people will put in the chest if you dodge more bolts, but obviously with her phobia it's not something she'd be able to find out herself. So in order to be a good buddy, and to try to cheer her up/distract her/make up for dragging her through there again he up and starts jumping like a grasshopper.
