When I reached the Zora-place in Twilight Princess, it wasn´t anything but a joke. There was a lake, a throne room, and that´s it. That´s the living place of the high race of the Zora?

Zelda managed to do this better in the past, see Ocarina of Time or Majora´s Mask. The Wind Waker wasn´t bad, either. But Twilight Princess just put some races into a certain place and called it a day. So, just have there be convincing environment for all species.
