OMG, you just gave everything away about that thing what that guy!! The game is ruined now... About that guy with that thing he did that one time involving that other guy

I totally get your point OP, but the entire story - any story - could be summarized at a certain level as "there was a guy once who did this thing and this was the result", with a sequel of seeing how that thing turned out. There's a bit more to the companion stories in terms of color, but is there really enough time to explore all their pasts? To be honest, the great thing about a hero's journey is the side kick doesn't hog the spotlight too much
