Smile Stuff they left out

Everyone knows how in AOD they skipped the leveling up system due to time limitations and we got the "move box to feel stronger" strange situations. But i feel in TR there are also some stuff like that. For example the first level, when lara says she is hungry and you need to hunt a deer. its kind of a big deal and has a scene for it and i thought " oh so i must hunt food every now and then as part of the game" but actually you can ignore all animals from that level until the end of the game. feels like there are some left over ideas that were cut off as the game delayed and the focused on other struff. oh well, at least the graphics engine didn't have any problems like the previous games...
Yall know of any other stuff that needed to be in the game but eventually removed and has leftovers or clues in the game for them?

I know they originally wanted to add a horse to the game(Which Lara could ride on) but that was removed.

I also know they wanted to add some supernatural cretures which that was also removed.

That was Ascension though which was a game concept before they changed to TR'13, so it's not really stuff they removed from that game.

Yeah Ascension concepts are more of a 'Resident Evil 3.5' situation than cut content from TR2013.

I believe they did however remove a hunger meter from the final game that would have made the whole hunting animals mechanic make sense, the icon has been found in the games files.

They wanted to implement swimming but somehow they abandoned the idea. There was a flashback cutscene of the boat accident when Lara is revisiting the Endurance.
A machine gun sequence was intended at Shipwreck Beach.
An entire character has been left out in the story : Steph.

In the pre-alpha version Lara's non-TressFX hair looked better and had different strands (I think that a lot of early builds had hair similar to this).

The bar that Lara falls onto at the beginning was supposed to pierce her leg, which makes even less sense than in the final version since it looks like it shattered her femur.

Not sure if anything else from this pre-alpha trailer counts since a lot of it looks like it was created just for this trailer like that jumping axe swinging animation near the end.

I read somewhere that Sam was supposed to die at some point or the end.

At the end. Himiko was going to overtake Sam and Lara was going to have to sacrifice Sam in order to defeat her. Test players found it too depressing that they'd gone through the whole game only to effectively lose.

Lmao, these 2 last replies reminded me that developers wanted Lara and Sam to kiss each other in the end but that was removed.(I think I read it in resetera when I used to torture myself going there.)
