I really thought the joke would have played better with a human male main character. My ‘lil Elf is female, which kind of confuses the joke. But having a human male Grey Warden would have required starting a brand new character and playing them to this point in the game, which would have taken some hours. It’s not a big deal or anything, but it’s one of those small details that would have been nice.
I’m missing having a “default” character. It was handy to have male Shepard in Mass Effect, so that I had a recognizable “this is the main character”. Even if they’d never played the game, odds were good they would still be familiar with the face from promotional materials.
