That alone wouldn't help. There is a difference in how the motivation of main character is presented and how self-identification works. In DAO you don't have a choice, you are forced by circumstances and basically you're a mercenary. In DA2 it's an intrinsic reason, it's a personal matter for the main character to save his family.

Of course, saving the world you live in can also be a personal interest. But fighting for survival says nothing in special about your character except that you have an instinct of self-preservation. On the other hand suicide might be an option if the game world is that much in danger that is has to be saved everytime a new game in the series is released. Also Saving the World oftenly forces you to a predefined side of the conflict although you might have sympathies for the opponent.
