Allag and the use of (Magi)tech. A Romantcism/Enlightement debate

Okay some preface: The game and franchise in genral has been typiclay Fantasy oriented, that said several Science Fiction elements cropped up early (paraellel Worlds in III, Prominent use of technology in VI, Cyberpunkish elements in VII, Machina in X, along modern entertainment, and Time travel in XIII-2) and certain games have became more of an equal mix of Science Fiction and Fantasy as a result. Considering the juxtaposition of magic, Mythical Creatures, Medieval Trappings and Swords, with technology, aliens, The Allagan Empire's aesthetics (and Allag in general) and Firepower, This game is in one of the FF titles in both Sci-Fi and fantasy genres

 

With this in mind, historically speaking, these had been two conflicting ideologies that ese two are associated with, Romanticism, which focuses on emotion, nature and human individuality, and Enlightenment which focuses on society as a whole, Technology and Intelligence. And the two genres are related to one of the two (though you can find Enlightenment Fantasy and Romanticist Sci-Fi, in fact certain genres like Cyberpunk are inspired by the ideology conflicting with the one associated with its parent)

 

The two primary sources of Magiteck are two: The Allagin empire, which seems to be the Mad Scientist's counterpart to Rapture and the Garlean Empire which are the current antagonist (With the only source of modern Eorzean Magitech being a defector)

 

On the other hand, the CT subplot seem to have an Enlighented take on the story (Despite Unei and Doga's exposition apparently revealing that the Allagins are the logical conclusion to the Crystal Spires and Togas utopia common in faction nowadays, which seems to be Romanticists) and The plot of heavenward amounts to removing a theocrctic ruler (though it is still unclear if the theorcratic system will stay in place) as well as a slaying the dragon-alien who is controlled by his emotions and rendered unreasonable and irrational (and uses an emotional window in a rather stoic character to make him the vessel of his rebirth)

 

Lastly there are the Existence of Primals, supernatural beings capable of enthralling others and strip them of all reason and will, except the will to serve their new master at all cost.

 

With all that *and other factors) in mind, I'd like to ask if you think the metaplot of the game, certain subplots, or factions/groups are Romanticist or Elightened? (and that you'd refrain from flaming, Just because this is about two ideologies doesn't not mean vitriolic arguments are welcome here)
