Games With "Dumb" Character Dialogue Options

Do you know of any role-playing games with "dumb" character dialogue options?

Here are the ones I know:

1. Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura (AWESOME game!)
2. Neverwinter Nights 1
3. Fallout 1 and (maybe) Fallout 2, but Fallout 3 has no "stupid speech" choices

Playing Arcanum as an idiot is friggin' hilarious! Idiot savant is almost as much fun.

All of that wonderful attention to detail, and yet the combat is terribly unbalanced. Still a terrific game, though. Troika.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

You've pretty much listed them all; I can't think of anything else that reacts to your intelligence on that level.

Akellas Pirates of the Caribbean game was fairly annoying when it came to dialog, descent, better than NWN, but not as good as KOTOR.

Sid Meier's Pirates had only two dialog options per conversation, but the comical reactions were good and kinda balanced it out.

Mass Effect 1 You dont really have "idiot options" but the stuff Sheppy says is sometimes worth a quadruple facepalm...

Especially since it often didn't matter what option you picked, he was going to say the same thing anyways.
