Well, you'd have trouble ditching Lynn completely--the one-clueless-guy-and-two-different girls thing is a classic. But you'd have to either make her exactly the same (ew) or change her completely (yay) to make it work. I'm playing Enchanted Arms now, and I gotta admit, the similarities are amusing.
