lets put it this way,
MM, the world dies if you fail to complete the game
TP, the world gets taking over if you fail to complete the game,
hmmm, which ones darker... i wonder
Your not thinking deep enough into it....the people that lived in the Twilight while surrounded by the Shadow Beasts thought they were in a living hell pretty much, An example being the citizens of Kakariko when they are hiding out in the Shaman's house, Another being the guy that gives you the latern....he was a scared by those little bugs, they're nothing compared to the Shadow Beasts.
MM gave you a quick painless death unless you knew the Moon was falling, TP gave you a chance to die in a large amount of ways but I won't go into this, The only one I can state is death by the Shadow Creatures or any other beings in the area...If I go any deeper I am entering the realm of Fan Fiction.
I personally would prefer to die a quick and painless death...not living in fear in an eternal Twilight. Once Link had failed there was no hope of this leaving. Really they are as both Dark as each other but which ever way you wuld want to live if your choice.
I don't really know about Pamela and her father but my thoughts were Pamela is hiding her mummified father because of his look. Yeah, he was studying Gibdo's. There is also a poster something hanging in his room about the spies The Garo. Ikana was a real dark place for sure.
Yeah, I think he just got trapped in that wardrobe. If memory serves she doesn't know where she is until she hears a his voice down stairs after you have played the Song of Healing.
Well, Twilight Princess was really dark too, but it doesn't match the destructive darkness from Majora's Mask.
Yeah, TP and MM are both based of very different forms of Darkness, Majora's Mask gave a sense of destruction throughout the game once you found out about the Moon falling into Termina. Twilight Princess gave off a sense of fear from when you first entered Hyrule Castle as Wolf Link, All the guards and as I've said before the people living in constant fear...etc.
Majora's Mask by a landslide. What's can be worse then an alternate dimension to be destroyed be a moon in three days. Personally, I know Zelda could have taken down Zant in TP, but why she surrendered was up to her.
In my opinion living in eternal Twilight surrounded by large Shadow creatures is worse...at least if you were killed by the Moon you didn't have to live the rest of your life in fear. I would hate living in fear all my life, It would make life too stressful and most would probably die of exhaustion if they got stressed (that last bit would be considered fan fiction though)
Its because she can't....Zant is kept alive by Ganondorf so her attempts would have failed. She was greatly outnumbered so she would most likely have fell to one of them, Even if she did kill them she would never have known that to truly kill them you need to make sure the last two die at the same time or within about half a second of each other. It was a good idea to surrender.
I doubt she would have been able to get the Master Sword either and since there are no other weapons in this game that can actually KILL Ganondorf she would have failed without it. The best she could do was hope for a Hero to come along.
