I have lost countless hours to my spouse plodding through the house when all I want to do is talk to them and fly out the door! Please make them speakable in addition to accepting gifts while traveling. I have also been forced to temporarily move furniture in order to occupy a tile horizontally adjacent to where they've stationed themselves in order to execute a hug. If touch controls worked on diagonal tiles this wouldn't be an issue (BTW, that has cropped up in many other contexts such as unreachable Garden Pots/Kegs/etc. if arranged in corners).
