Asheron's Call actually worked pretty hard to break out of that setting (though they still had some run-of-the-mill undead).

It's interesting (to me, anyway) that science fiction has no such standards. Yet they seem to get along just fine. He points out some near-future games at least have a similar setting but what about games like Mass Effect? That's gotten along great without having cliche races. Xenosaga dumped you into an even more alien universe head first. So why do fantasy settings feel they NEED to have elves and dwarves every time?
