I'm a few hours into playing Tales of Vesperia, and I noticed that each of my characters has a few titles to choose from in the Status screen. Does the active title affect gameplay/stats? Does it make cosmetic differences? Or is the only purpose of titles to be fun to collect?

By titles, I mean things like

Downtown Boy and Basic Swordsman for Yuri; Man's Best Friend and Dog Warrior for Repede

According to this Tales of Vesperia titles guide, titles can affect your outfit but not your stats. There is also an achievement for getting all of the titles in the game.

Okay, I tried all of my titles, and they had no effect on my stats. Either Vesperia doesn't work like Symphonia, or I just need to get farther into the game. – Pops Feb 27 '11 at 4:45
@Lord Torgamus - Bingo. It doesn't work like Symphonia. – Shinrai Mar 3 '11 at 3:23
I should probably add, for those showing up late, that my first comment was a response to the first revision of this answer, and made a lot more sense when it was posted. (@Shinrai) – Pops Mar 3 '11 at 5:42
