CONFESSION: People are way too obsessed with the romance subplots in these games (and all bioware games really) They comprise about 10 minutes total of a game dozens of hours long.
there’s a reason for this:
These games are the only games where you can actually HAVE these kinds of romances. You’re not stuck with one LI that going to be the PCs romance no matter what, you have a choice.
Also unlike other games where you can pick who your character eventually marries there is far more emphasis put on the interaction between your PC and the NPC you are romancing
You can talk to each other about things
you can disagree and argue
But the talking is the main thing, feeling the back and forth and feeling that it actually has some sort of chemistry.
And then this romance subplot is going to colour the rest of the game from the player point of view.
Bioware games are really the only ones doing this in conjunction with RPG/action/shooter/MMO game components. Of coarse people are going to hang onto and talk about this very personal part of the games that other games don’t give you.
And really how much can you say about running around killing things and collecting items before it is all said? These things are fun to do in the game but don’t exactly make for great conversations. Unlike characters and your own PCs relationship with them, which is going to be unique to each player, while sharing common content.

I should be in bed but
I kept seeing this thing making the rounds on my dash
About how different body types in a Bioware game isn’t feasible because of armor or cutscenes
You all know Bioware made SWTOR right?
and SWTOR has four different body types for each gender?
I mean they weren’t perfect in the sense that female type four still has a thin waist while male type four is almost cube shaped and other such nitpicks…
But they still managed different armor
with different body shapes
It can be done
They’ve already done it….

Oh I dunno Casey how about getting rid of the completely transparent objectification.
Can I call for a tumblr-bombing? Do I have that power?
Also, getting rid of Casey Hudson (◡‿◡✿)

that’s some artistic integrity I can get behind

I was okay with the Warden not being in DA2, but bummed about race choice being removed. I hope the choice returns in DA3 (though, sadly, I doubt it will).
I dunno, I was okay with being human in DA2. The different race thing was fun in origins, but eh, in reality it was kinda half-assed. Apart from the different openings before Ostagar, most of the game plays out exactly the same no matter what race you are—which in some respects, it should, because your character is now a Warden first, but apart from a handful of comments here and there, it really seemed more aesthetic to me, in terms of impact on gameplay. If it does return, I’d really like to see some deeper consequences (obstacles to overcome, different paths opened or closed for specific conflicts, etc) to the selection of race. (And to some extent, mage/nonmage too.)
Regarding the part I bolded I felt that the origins of DA:O provided hugely different context in which to build vastly different Wardens. The way an Aeducan sees Logain selling elves into slavery is going to be VASTLY different then how a Tabris will see it. A Mahariel has a far different context of mages then a Cousland will and this allows you to play out different characters each with very different personal stories and ways of seeing the world and the story.
This is one of the main reasons I have 7 wardens and only 4 Hawkes, and the fourth is only because of a mod that let me play an elf funnily enough. Because not matter what you do, Hawke will ALWAYS have the same context with the biggest available difference being whether or not you’re a mage.
Playing a race other than a human is a huge draw for fantasy games. I was damn well angry and disappointed when I first heard that DA2 would force me to play a human, why would I want to play a human when the elves and dwarves of the Dragon Age world are so much more interesting?
I ended up, perhaps naively, hoping that the next games would have a focus on a different race each and be able to tell stories from this vastly different point of view. But it looks like if the rumours are true we’re going to be forced to play human AGAIN and not only that someone tightly bound to the Chantry, limiting the context for your character even further.

The military has a long history of using canines and horses.
What do you think they keep their mages alive for? Just like the Chantry they’ve found them too useful to exterminate outright.
They’re just used as attack dogs rather then whatever other purpose they use them for.

I blame my particular Mahariel for my sometimes unbridled hate of Duncan… *facepalm* I’m not proud, I can shake it for other characters perceptions but my Mahariels views are pretty darn loud in my head
