Yeah, but the SW voice sounds good on all body types. When I hear the IA male voice, I think of a short thin guy who is very sly.....

Not a big muscular dude who is a playboy lady magnet.

The NPC's have deeper voices than me and as i mention before, the women do too!!
Go give BioWare millions of dollars, so they can record more voices. Then maybe you'll be able to.
This just in: Expanding on an ending no one likes is not improving said ending. A polished turd is still a turd.

When casting the rolls for VA, they probably had a character archetype and look in mind. IA's are supposed to be SPYS, and who would you rather be a spy? The big giant dude who stands out in a crowd? Or the small/average sized guy who blends in with everyone else.

James bond would be the worst, spy, ever.

Mark Bazeley.

I am so tempted to make a male Sith Warrior just so I can listen to his voice for hours.

I to plan on playing as a black male [3rd Body Type] for my Imperial Agent and the voice was something that I was pondering about as well.
Yeah, im playing an agent. And i have chose a really big black "bouncer" looking guy.

And for all the people saying "lol ironic" or hypocrit, You all apparently must not care that this game took SEVERAL years to develop because their main complaint was "oh, we wanted all characters to have a different voice." and now all we have is characters who sound the same.

And before someone shoots back saying "hurpderp, they meant npc's only", then why do our characters have voices or anything? They could have least put in a slider on character selection for modulated or different voices, what with all the people they have recording voices around.

They wanna make a game that is about the story, lore and immersion, well, i wanna be immersed. And it is hard to do that with my 6ft tall bouncer sounding like stewie griffin.

I swear, if my chracter EVER says "what the deuce", im quitting period.

The only thing i ask for this christmas, is my CE edition replaced since i was sent a broken one missing stuff
