Post Most Complex Translation Project
This is more directed at the people here who have participated in the makings of translation patches in general. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what the most complex or difficult translation project ever completed would be? Or at least, one of the most complex or difficult? I know that many modern games, such as those on the psp, are a bit easier to translate than older ones seem to be.

Since nobody has worked on them all, and everyone has different thresholds and abilities, that would be completely subjective.

If your talking about difficulty, then that's essentially impossible to come up with an infallible answer for, as Artemio has stated.
If your talking about complexity, then maybe that might hold some water, but coming up with a bullet proof answer for it might take some work.

Some of the more complex and ambitious projects that I can think of off the top of my head are,

Energy Breaker
One of the most complex translation projects for the SNES, at least hacking wise.

Persona 2: Innocent Sin
One of the most famous PlayStation translation projects and a very difficult game to hack I hear. The finished patch is quite impressive, to say the least.

Mother 3
Do I even really need to say anything about this one? It's the most talked about and beloved ROM hacking/translation project. The fact that not only the hacking, but the translation as well, was able to receive the polish that it got in such a short period of development time (two years) is quite the achievement.

Policenauts
Okay, so you knew I was getting to this. This project is, by far, the most important in my book. I'm still greatly impressed at the humungous accomplishment this project was. It truly is an inspiring piece of work.
