If it's episodic, then exploration might be harder to reasonably pull off and whole chunks of the World Map (if there even is one) might be restricted when they otherwise wouldn't be. For example, would Gongaga still be optional? Would it still be possible to go to the Midgar Swamp before entering Kalm for the first time? That sort of thing.
Granted, I haven't played an episodic game in a long time, but the ones I'm most familiar with only allow very limited freedom at best.
Thanks. Clidus pointed me to another piece there; I'll check them out once I've woken up a bit.
