2 games with windmills

Here's a game that had a windmill:


Here's a game that's coming out that also has a windmill:

Prince of Persia.

Here's something else they both have:

Characters that hold hands.

At least some of the time.

What I've seen of Prince of Persia exudes fantastical mystery. I welcome another game that contains two characters travelling with an environment that's a character unto itself, with its own secrets and history.

Let's hope the Prince's witty one-liners and the acrobating fighting he and Elika share help them approach the tremendous, wordless bond that Ico and Yorda had. It's a tall order, but maybe I just want something to tide me over until Fumito Ueda's team announces their next project.
