From reading that article it says it's just like Dragon Age's origin stories.

I agree, but I'd still like to see them coming up with their own features. But I guess instead of booing on Obsidian BioWare deserves credit for making new features become popular. And the game will probably be better because of the inclusion of the background stories.
