I always thought this. Who hides out in a dungeon? Really? Sure, a hidden village, a cottage in the woods, a temple on top of a very tall mountain. Those are all acceptable. But a dungeon? To hide out from monsters? Morons.
Because that's what they are doing. Hyrule is a post-apocalyptic wasteland at this point in the series (as this game takes place later than some of the "sequels") and the townspeople all hide out in the dumbest places. Amazing logic there, Nintendo.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
