Is BioWare out of touch with their fans expectations? At least Hellforge does think so.
At the end of Dragon Age: Origins, your character had the option of making this ultimate sacrifice, giving their life to end the Fifth Blight. There were other ways out of course; creating some sort of demon-godchild with the apostate Morrigan, or having Alistair or Loghain make the killing blow. However, with the recent update of Dragon Age: Awakening's FAQ comes a revelation; if your character sacrificed themselves to destroy the Archdemon, you must either pretend it never happened and continue the character, or you must play Awakening in an alternative universe where your character never existed and never made the major changes to Ferelden of Dragon Age: Origins.
This is one time that I have to say I feel Bioware is out of touch with their fans' expectations of story, and judging by the furore on both the official DA forum and several other internet fora, such as Penny Arcade, I am not alone in thinking this.
So a major choice doesn't have a much of a consequence? I think we are onto something here.
