Why do some PS2 games have drastic differences in save game size?

I don't get it. Sometimes the most simple games have huge save files, like Rayman for instance. The file size is around 500KB. But what is there to save? There's no customization in that one, it's only level standing. But then we have these really huge games which require a lot of info to be saved, like FF12, but that one only takes up 94KB.

    Final Fantasy XII is more efficient in its save file than Rayman.

    Rayman probably saved lots of tiny pictures instead of mere data like in Final Fantasy XII.

    The tiny pictures in Rayman probably are screenshots from the gameplay.

    Final Fantasy XII probably just kept mostly text information.
