@ Thrasher: See wolfing's post. Add to that the fact that playing as humans killing elves is just a way of seeing one race killing another. So in fact it's just hiding that you might be a Shia killing a Sunni or a Christian killing a Jew or a colonialist killing a native. In essence it IS the same thing. You are massacring an entire other race in most fantasy games because they are of another race.
In Star Wars it's Sith vs Jedi (two different religions) or Empire vs Rebels (like in Syria right now). In Lord of the Rings it's Orcs killing Humans, Dwarves and Elves.
In reality it's still wrong. Hiding what exactly the races are is not a betterment of killing a people for what they are or what they believe in.
You can of course think what you want to think and justify playing a "fantasy" game because it has different races, but in reality it IS still a game just like this game is still just a game.
Of course, if the entire idea of the game WAS to put pestilence and disease upon the natives as well as killing them all, then that would be bad in my opinion. But the game isn't like that and it will still address all of the issues as much as they can according to the developers.
