The situation archetype is "The Task". Squall and company must complete a superhuman task to save their world. They must compress time in order to defeat the sorceress of the future, Ultimecia. It's actually much more complicated than that, but I'm sure you're already confused beyond belief.
Wheatley's "To His Excellency General Washington" also has traces of the task archetype. Columbia must be saved by the hero, George Washington. He must defeat "Britannia" to to save his fair lady.
