You’ll find people on the internet who have the audacity to label certain tasks as “menial” while considering other tasks to be important.
I do understand their sentiment. Most games have an end goal, and while farming simulators such as Stardew Valley have a blurred sense of goals, it is still hard to classify things.
Some gamers (such as myself) would argue that there are no menial or unimportant things, especially in a game like Stardew Valley where your creativity has free rein wherever goals are considered.
While there is no central objective to this game. It does offer quests with several tasks which can be considered linear. In the infamous Pelican Town, there lies a Community Center which has seen better days.
The Player can voluntarily decide to restore this rundown building to its former glory. However, in order to restore it, you must be willing to subject yourself to some fairly annoying task of gathering the required materials.
There are these bundles that you need to complete and they cover almost every facet of this game. The incentive is that you will be sufficiently rewarded for each said bundle.
