Why would BioWare be embarrassed? Their games are incredibly engaging, and they actually think through your interactions with NPCs as opposed to this 'tacked on at the last minute bs marriage thing'. You actually care about your followers in a BioWare game and you really get to know them. In this game, you barely know anything about them. The only one who even offers up any backstory is Mjoll, and it's the same three lines vomited up at random intervals over and over. As much as I like her, it gets old fast. They also aren't so in your face with redundant dialogue. I don't think that Bethesda quite understood the complaints we had regarding the voice acting. Yes it's a 'larger' voice cast, but I am sick of the "Mick and Ralph's" kid (as if I wasn't already sick of it in NV), I have heard about the Hammerfell curved swords quite enough, and it's no longer entertaining to hear every guard contemplate whether or not they are Dragonborn and just don't know it in that slow Terminator drawl. I wish that dialogue would just shut off after being regurgitated 50+ times. It's to the point where I turn down the volume when in a city. After all, it's not like I'll be hearing anything new. It's a fun game as far as your standard dungeon-diving, dragon-slaying, fantasy epic goes, but it's not anything that would make BioWare cry. Will it be GoTY? Of course it will. Does it really deserve it? I'm on the fence.
