Yes, Wynne is built like all the other women. (Hot.) She obviously just re-uses the same body used by every other woman in the game, who are all also hot. Fine, fine. Budget limits and all that. They couldn’t take the time to make a proper old person body.
So… what about Sten? They took the time to make this special barrel-chested male model. (Although he looks wide in armor, but ripped if you take his shirt off. It doesn’t make a lot of sense.)
It’s just… odd. All of it. And confusing.
