Many games still do not work.  Harvest Moon is one of them.  This particular game has a problem in the core, not the video plug-in like most game problems.

It will require some specific debugging to isolate the problem.  Once the cause is known then a fix or workaround that doesn't break other things will need to be devised.  It is on the to do list.

Be aware that with HLE, some games will never be emulatable (not saying that's the case here, but even the PC emulators with x86 cores and OpenGL plug-ins that have had years to mature still can not emulate many games.  Cycle accuracy is the best long-term solution for N64 emulation, like what has been done for the NES and SNES.  But the required processing power to do this for the N64 will make that impossible for running most games full-speed on PC's for many years yet, much less embedded systems like Android phones.
