Yeah, but that's not unique in RPGs either. Everyone's Commander Shepard is the same in Mass Effect and everyone's Grey Warden in Dragon Age saves the same world. I wouldn't mind more dialogue choices, though. One of the things I like about Coliseum was the fact that you could be a raging psychopath or a calm, reassuring, Federation officer to the Reman prisoner.
