Unlike the high affection Highwind scene, Cloud and Aerith's date is the . After Final Fantasy VII, we see Cloud and Tifa's relationship in Case. Nojima used a clerith scene to "build" romance between Zack and Aerith. This alone suggests that Cloud and Aerith's relationship was better. Cloud was the main character of the game, which meant that either Aerith or The exact relationship between Aerith and Sephiroth changed.
This was likely still during the point of development before Zack had been created. These relationships were all dropped and the two of them don't interact much before Sephiroth kills her. This is because she fights with a staff and her limit breaks are all based on magical effects.
Aerith's stats also support this, as her abilities are focused towards improving the power of spells. Aerith doesn't have to be relegated to the role of party healer, though, as the player can steal an awesome weapon for her that you wouldn't normally be able to acquire until later in the game.
When the party reaches the Train Graveyard in Midgar, it is possible to encounter a monster called Eligor. It's possible to successfully steal a weapon called the Striking Staff from Eligor, which will give Aerith the highest attack score in the party. She will remain your heaviest hitter until you leave Midgar and gain access to new weapons. The most popular fake secret involves a legitimate way to bring Aerith back to life. While it is impossible to bring Aerith back through a purposely designed manner, you can still see her ghost.
After you save Cloud in Mideel, you can return to Midgar and visit the Church in the slums.
If you do this, then you can see a brief glimpse of Aerith's ghost tending to the flowers. Aerith's ghost is a programming error that is caused due to issues with loading characters into a specific position.

Cloud and Aerith: A Story of a Love...
Noticed you posted on a few other threads. Nice to 'see' a new face here that doesn't just absolutely hate everything Final Fantasy, lol.
As for your comments, with all due respect, I completely disagree with you.Tifa Lockheart - True Love Interest for FFVII Remake
But to be honest, whether or not it was rushed is all opinion. To you it was rushed, to me and a lot of others it was very slow burning. There's evidence to show that their relationship was very well paced. I would list the examples but, again, it's something that's up to interpretation so there's no point.
But I can see where you're coming from if players don't have her in their party, but honestly, that's their fault not something to blame on the relationship. It's up to the player to look at the entire content of the game instead of focusing on their favorite characters. The game's "normal" outcome is to have her present in your party so that you, the player, can see all the scenes that Toriyama "dedicated all his efforts" to just to ensure that Aerith was as "appealing and irreplaceable" to the player by the time of her death.
The way he did that was by making Cloud, the player's character, fall in love with her so that by the time she dies her death is ripping gamer's hearts out. And I think they succeeded since the reaction from the gaming world was denial and outrage, leading to one of the most memorable scenes in gaming history. That's sort of why the commercials that Nomura helped make said Cloud and Aerith were a "story of a love". Zack and Aerith fans that played Crisis Core say their love story was told better, but what's funny is that Nojima admitted that he didn't want to waste time "building" their relationship so in order to convince us they fell in love he repeated Cloud and Aerith's Church meet cute.
This also applies for Cloudwho is called Ex-SOLDIER in the game, but this is changed when the player gets to the name selection screen where the default on the name selection is "Cloud.
Japanese publications referring to the character with a Latin-text name have always used the name "Aerith", including the game manual with the Japanese edition of the game and in the Final Fantasy VII Official Establishment File prior to its release.
