Final Fantasy x-2 and XV are two of the smallest cast in the history of the franchise. In X2 you only have 3 playable characters and in XV you only have 5. I think the advantage of a smaller cast is that you have to master fewer characters and the character development is easier for the writers. Final Fantasy VI and Tactics are known to have a large cast of playable characters. VI managed to fleshed out 14 playable characters despite of the large cast while tactics struggled on that part. The advantage of the large cast is that you can customize your team in more varieties. It has more replay value because you can try different character combinations.
