Letting English-speaking players fully understand the Japanese script.
The Japanese version of SA2 is a must-see for any fan of the game. The "Sonic Adventure 2 Retranslated" mod by DeLaKek adds in most of Windii's translation of the original script for English-speaking fans to enjoy.
But there are parts that lack subtitles in all languages. Most crucially the final cutscene, but there's also the in-gameplay lines in levels like Iron Gate, Crazy Gadget and boss fights.
SPEEPSHighway's mod "Enable Hidden Dialogue" captions the localized version of the last scene, meaning much of the work there is done. As for the gameplay lines, Cannon's Core and the Finalhazard fight caption theirs, proving it's most likely possible.
As for the FMV scenes, I understand that they work very differently under the hood, so captioning them may be impossible. But since they're pretty simple narrative-wise, the meaning can generally be inferred through the context, voice delivery and bits of English.
I think adding these subtitles would really help in presenting the definitive version of this story.
