Just throwing this question out there. I still haven't read the books (I'll be getting to them soon!), but I was fortunate as a kid to go to the midnight showings of all Three LoTR movies. They are cemented into my memories as great fantastical happiness. Do you have more than one part of the story that you enjoy? Share here!
For me... it is the fight with the Balrog. That is how I play Phantasia games! Just sayin'
