Something that struck me about how brilliant SE has been this go round with the story:
Level 15 quest spoilers: You get your airship pass, you get on it, and you're all like whooooo high fantasy technology! I'm so special and this is so cool!
Then.... spaceships. The Garleans have the technology of Star Wars, and Eorzea is barely a notch above LotR.
I just saw that cutscene for the second time (since I finally got in on my old legacy character tonight) and it's just bloody brilliant the way they did that.
