Why subjunctive?

The subjunctive tens is associated with fear/doubt/uncertainty. So why is it used with "aimer que" ?

This relates to:
Aimer que / d├ętester que + Le Subjonctif = to like / hate that -

Hi Joakim - it's also used to express wishes/hypothetical futures. This is the same in English in fact: "I would like that you be there on time."

Hope that helps!
