I might have actually done that, too, and just forgot I did.Yes, and specifically with Breath of the Wild recently. The game's about exploration! Go out, climb that mountain, swim that lake, fly through that valley! Except...I couldn't figure out how the hell to get the shrine key in Kakariko Village. Turns out, I needed to talk to this one specific person at this one specific time - and I think in their damn house of all things - to activate a quest.
