Honestly I was never too happy with any of the body styles. it's like they had to add at least one thing that makes each body seem out of whack.

Male 1 - head.
Male 2- butt (why can they NOT design a butt right? looks like it's blown up with balloons)
Male 3- upper out of proportion to lower. too meaty w/o enough definition
male 4 - Not sure what to say on this one...its probably got the least issues, except i just don't liek playing it.

Female 1 - not bad really...except rail thin wrists and ankles look like I could pop them by looking at them crosseyed.
Female 2 - female one with bigger b00bs. just looks a bit too flat from the backside (where i am most the time).
Female 3 - probably the best IMO...I like the athletic legs, but they squared the shoulders a bit too much (girls have Traps too ya know), and chest is a bit extreme...they could have made them look amazonian in the upper body without making them look like a female arnold. arms are a bit skinny...with a muscular chest like that i'd expect a bit more meat in the arms. As a matter of fact, all the women models are a bit skinny in the extremities. someone who swings heavy objects all day will not have the wrists of a desk secretary.
Female 4 - very attractive. only thing that turns me off is that the shoulders are quite narrow for the body. the hips are hawt...but the butt still has a bubble-like appearance (goes back to Bio's issue with building decent looking butts)

if the shoulders had a bit more girth and if there was a bit more of a natural slope to the behind female 4 probably would be my choice. as it is I prefer the athletic (read gymnast or sprinter type athletic, not long distance runner athletic) build of Female 3, then the normal build of the Male 2...and most of my toons make up those two styles.

I have no issues playing either girl or guy. part of it is story involvement, part of it is simply the fact that I don't' see myself in the toons, I see it more like watching a movie where I'm enjoying the characters, not feeling like I'm one of them. because of that, sometimes a fem toon works better, sometimes a guy toon does.

you know what I always found weird? how a guy can spend all day looking at girls in a maxim magazine, but then feel "weird" making one run around in an MMO. guess I don't get "into" my characters, I just play them.
