Where did you get this information? The interview that comes with the Fate/Zero first volume is completely different. They even asked him to rework lines in a "cool, Urobuchi way." He was completely involved with the scenario writing and supervision.

Don't know about Nasu or Takeuchi. They were asked things like the layout of Fuyuki.

HF puts a stronger emphasis on Kiritsugu (all the truth about him is out, and Shirou has an actual choice to become like him) and on Kotomine which has more connection to Zero than UBW which... doesn't. Furthermore, ufotable always uses the four children as a promotional material of "let's continue next generation" (which, admittedly, can be fanservice, but food for thought). The only route where the four of them play a real role is HF.

Did they? I haven't gotten my copy of that book yet. That's interesting.
