But it's a fantasy game, even if there are realistic buildings and weapons you get fictional races and magical powers. So do we need to talk or even to care about authenticity?

We could also argue that there were female warriors throughout the history of several civilizations.
The game itself sets the level of authenticity to fantasy. All we can do as fans is decide if it works for us or not. We do need to care about authenticity in so far as the game world is concerned as it needs to be consistently presented. If the world is not consistently presented we get something like the sequel trilogy (Disney Star Wars) . Games wise you get what happened with the Dragon Age series. Dragon Age Origins world and characters changed, sometimes drastically, with Dragon Age 2. When things change to much the world loses cohesion and fans get turned off as a result.
