On second thought, I actually like the ability to choose my race without being faction-locked, because you could easily come up with a RP reason. But in that case, I think there should be a penalty and NPCs should dislike you.
Also, it doesn't sit well with me that this is a pre-order thing, and not something everyone can choose to do.
That said, I'm 99% sure you will be able to get that option in the store - they're just going to wait until the pre-order thing is over, so they can maximise profit that way.
But I must admit, that IS pretty lame. I didn't think they'd do it this way.
Doesn't change that I really like the game and I'll be getting it - but it does make me wonder about the integrity of the developers.
Not a good sign, frankly.
But it's likely a decision "inspired" by suits - and keeping your job is probably more important than putting your foot down.
