Well the Leliana issue could have been handled by simply creating a generic character to fill in for her instead of insisting on having Leliana fill that roll. I personally never killed her off, and when I played DA2 it didn't register on that front, but now thinking back on it, I can see the issue with it, and it's just poor forward planning on their part, that really could have been very easily avoided.KnightofPhoenix said:Exact same thing with Shani. And both didn't bother giving an explanation (until EE).
Both committed the mistake of allowing for a choice that they realized they couldn't afford to have. Giving us the option to choose Shani was a mistake, just like giving us the option to kill Leliana when her character has potential for more stories.
