You're seeing that event out of context. There's a reason that the crowd is there and a reason why they appear in that picture.

Also, it's not that weird when you look at how old CRPGs, like the Gold-Box games for example, did their events. They often described areas bustling with people (even though those areas were empty when the player walked around in them) and showed pictures with people in the background.

I'm including a few screenshots from the SSI Gold-Box games that used the same technique to show a crowd or a group of people in places that might be empty when the player entered them. I'm hoping you will see what I'm going for.
