    I realize I'm a very tiny minority, but I always liked this aspect of FFXI, the inability to completely change your character once you have made it, the fact that the game tried to tie gameplay and story together.

    I agree completely, I have always enjoyed the fact that the game insisted on you making a commitment, on being responsible for your actions and decisions. I think at level 1, the game is telling you something, which is that your actions and decisions in the game are important, and you can't just rush blindly into things and then go cry about it later. You need to think before you leap.

    Level 1 Character Creation is telling a new player that they need to understand that this is a long-term game, and they will be looking at this Character for years, so they should choose their Character very carefully. This is encouraging personal responsibility, a trait that will serve a player very well in later parts of the game where they are part of a Community who expect them to think in advance, plan accordingly and to act responsibly.

    I'd agree if the game also didn't let you to change jobs, alliance, and answer options in quest dialogues. I don't see an intended message of commitment, personally. It really only feels like, back then, a change race/gender/name feature was simply something the developers (and the game engine) were not capable of.

    It's not like Fable II where you're stuck on the same thing until you run into this ONE CHANCE to drink a potion to change gender forever and never again.



    Unfortunately though, this is a game core mechanic, and much like my request to let us sit on benches scattered throughout the game, it's probably irreversible to change now.

    If Square are worried that not enough people will buy these options because of 3rd party apps, I can tell you that an important reason (aside from said apps being unreliable when they swap your race/face) is people want others to see the difference too.

    Also if you really want to boost sales of these race / character coupons just add a few new hair styles to the game, this is what other mmo titles do and they sell a ton of race / character remodel change tickets from doing that. Not like you even have to make the new models, you can just re-use hair styles from current story npcs.

    I'd kill (in-game) to give my Hume male Cornelia's hairstyle (Karst's daughter, not the dead Cornelia).
