I imagine that Obsidian got LA/Bioware's express permission to use/leave some of that in the game. That may have showed up in some contract with Bioware and/or LA. And they're giving their source credit, obviously.

Let's turn this around--say you created a game. Would you like someone exporting your stuff to make another game without giving you credit or getting your permission? What if you only make Teen-level games, and someone ported your material to an M game? Your reputation could be affected.

LA wants control over their material, and I think that's reasonable.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
