Don’t want to hear any Obsidian fanboys talking trash about BioWare’s stories after that final boss though.

You aren't going by the time on the save file are you, because I'm almost certain it's inaccurate.

FWIW, they did the same thing with AP: Shorter length but lots of encouragement for multiple playthroughs. I kinda like it, so long as they don't start doing it on every game.

Started my hardcore run last night. So far, there seem to be more mobs. The mobs are not only larger but have a more diverse mix (3-4 "hit points", a guy in heavy armor, a couple of archers, and a couple of guys with rifles). Too soon to tell, but I think this confirms my suspicion that the only way to get the level 30 achievement is to also get the hardcore achievement.
