Hell with Mass Effect you at lest had some options to chose with what kind of military background and childhood Commander Shepherd had. With Generic Man/Women it looks like you won't even get that luxury. Their just going to Mary-Sue/Stu it because "power fantasy". Kinda like with Twilight having the most bland and soulless main character ever but it was easy for pre-teen, teenage girls and desperate middle age women to picture themselves as Bella Swan because Bella Swan had no personality other then being a wet brick so they just inserted themselves into the character. This is just bad and lazy writing and bad character development. I really wish writers would stop doing this.
