Accepting Mass Effect as the art it has always been

Here's an interview with BioWare's Matt Atwood on play.tm. For some reason Firefox is having issues letting me flick back and forth between the interview and posting this news item, but here's a quote I eventually managed to cull:
What was your take on the controversial Fox News coverage of Mass Effect's sexual content? Will romance play a part in future BioWare titles, and do you think the mass media has 'issues' when it comes to interactive entertainment?
If it is suitable for the game, then we will definitely add romance to future games. I think that video games are starting to become accepted as the art form that they have always been, but there is still a need to educate some mass media outlets. Keep in mind that Mass Effect is an 'M' rated title, with themes that really appeal to our core audience of 18 - 35 year olds.
How is Dragon Age progressing?
It is really looking great. I played a build just recently and the team is really making huge strides. We're looking forward to showing it off soon.
They must've gotten the bloom in early on Dragon Age.
