Bomb defusing-antics are what await as you travel the park searching for your uncle and trying to rescue the other captured attendants.
If love can bloom on the battlefield, then by God, it can bloom anywhere it damn well pleases.
Regardless of race, creed, species, plane of existence, or definition of "alive," your perfect match is waiting for you somewhere in the great cosmos.

Jumping race or social castes is just the beginning; no line is too sacred for these poignant tales of romance.
