As a small bonus an answer I recieved from Larian designer Koen :

When I was asked to draw up a div2 goblin, I wanted to have a design which moved away from the typical looks you would expect from these creatures. So I drew these one-eyes beings, with long pointy skulls, but something was still missing. I think it was Swen that came up with the idea to add the glowing eye and veins: the goblins in div2 feed on light, they absorb it and are able to channel it into powerful magic.
It shows a side of the divinity universe I hadn't expected.

It might also explain why the Goblin Shaman seems to consist to a huge part of glowing flesh. My thought was that the more light such a Goblin has "embodied", the more powerful it becomes …

More snippets I just read, posted by Lar himself :

Achievements are obligatory on the Xbox360 so we figured it might be nice to make them available for PC players also. There's a number of secret achievements and some of them relate to easter eggs.
I actually agree with you though there is one side-benifit, on 360 the achievements allow developers to figure out how far players progressed in the game, leading to all kinds of interesting stats and the unavoidable follow=up discussions.
