I played phantom hourglass and it was awesome!, apart some pacing problems during sea navigation and sea gameplay.

hmmm, you need not to have a girlfriend and no children to find enough time to develop this type of game I guess.

I gave up on Zelda when I played the one for Gameboy Color.  I can't get over the fact that I need 999 rupees to buy a lousy bow and that if I steal it everyone will call me a thief.

I have always kind of wanted to make a 2d Zelda clone (where you START with a bow), but I'm never going to actually do it.

Well, you're talking about only one Zelda game. We seen so much of them in the last 20+ years. You need to try the latest Zeldas or older ones to really have an updated opinion.

You can try to make it if you think you can achieve something significant and fun.

You can try to make it if you think you can achieve something significant and fun.

When you actually get down to it, the snes-era Zelda games are pretty simple - you walk around, talk to people and hit things. I bet you could probably hack together the code in about a month.

The real snag is the volume of content - lots of sprites, tiles and characters for a start. Plus most of the fun comes from the intricate (and carefully balanced) dungeon and world design.

Maybe something closer to Four Swords would work better? It relies much more on hack-and-slash gameplay rather than complicated level design or NPC interactions.

To add, game story is an extremely critical  task. I affects all the design and game play. It's not just about game design itself; it's also about how engaging and compelling the game is, how are you as a player engaged in the game. I know as an endie/amateur game developer you have to define very clear and narrowed goals to avoid getting lost in that huge and extreme task as a Zelda/RPG genre game.
