So, I just finished playing mass effect 3, a trilogy of games which I love for the story they tell. I know its sci fi, but I love fantasy too, thus why I'm asking here. One thing I loved more than anything about the games was how they built up.the main character, to make him seem so important and essential to this galaxy in peril. Everyone was depending on him and he had to battle not only the conflict, but all the pressure put on him. It was cool to have a character of such importance and how the mention of his mere name could bring hope to those who had almost lost it. It made him seem powerful in a different kind of way. Anyway, can anyone think of any books like this, where the main character is extremely essential to all that is happening, more than other characters. (Just for example, game of thrones has great characters, but no single one I would say is a main character, meanwhile name of the wind has a very defined main character, but not someone who has a lot riding on his shoulders in terms of ppl having to rely on him, so books like these are not what I mean. Hopefully I haven't confused everyone.) Thanks.
