A recurring theme I suddenly find again is that of the feeling of being tricked by Bioware.

I had this feeling a few times when I played Dragon Age 1 - and the worst moment of this feeling was when I found out (via Gamebanshee) that what I had considered the most friendly and - positively - "best" "ending" for the Dwarved enclave was actually the opposite : It was - at least I consider i as such - the worst "ending" for the Dwarves.

I felt like having been tricked. By Bioware. My perceiving of what would be the positively best choice for this culture was actually the opposite : Stagnation and poorness.
And this is not the first time. Think of KOTOR. Also developed by Bioware.
Playing with the gamers themselves could therefore being a recurring theme with Bioware's products.

Yes, I think they could be doing it again.
