So we can have cliche elements from those countries instead?

I hate it when Western RPGs portray Asian locations or characters, because they are extremely predictable and borderline racist. For example, why does every damn Japanese character in any given game need to have an obsession with honor? That's like having a Jewish character in a video game obsessed with gold.

I find that Western developers can produce a much more sophisticated array of Western characters, so I'll say it again they should stick to their strengths!
