So, apparently this game is the eighth entry in a series commonly known as "Ransu," (Rance, in America) in Japan. The game also happens to be defined as an "eroge" role-playing game, meaning it features erotic content. So it makes sense that the series' protagonist, Rance, is a swordsman who's only concerned with sexual conquests.
In other words, he will only rescue damsels in distress if they are willing to help him with some stresses of his own. The dude's unabashed forwardness is so bad, that most of the women he encounters are frightened by him. Self-control, Rance. You should look it up some time.
