Simplest way? There's a formula for creating character sympathy. Use a combination of the nine following ingredients. You need at least 5 of them. Using 6-7 of them is best. (Taken and paraphrased from Eric Edson's The Story Solution - seriously, go buy it.) Excellent advice. (Adding to notes.) -- ...

I really like his model for building a comedic romantic relationship. -- It's very different from the typical (boring) stat-building style; by simply saying what the character wants to hear, or outright bribery with dates and gifts.

Oh, I almost forgot your other question! ... if you know, is it possible to add the chapter select button to the main menu, instead of the in-game menu? Yes!
