Is it too late to be suggesting something like this?
I was having a discussion with my fiancee' the other night about the misrepresentation of the male to female ratio in games. I agree with her wholeheartedly. Sure, a majority of hardcore gamers are male, but IMHO, that's really no excuse. Any developer would be surprised at how many female gamers play ,say, Uncharted 2. A big reason for that is its support for realistic-looking female characters to play as.
Wii is the system that tries to target broader audiences, after all.
I understand if it's to late to implement something like this. A lot work is required to animate interchangable armor parts and costumes to a female character model. It's also extra money and voice work, but I believe it could be one of many aspects that would put The Conduit 2 ahead of the curve.

I support this as well as more options in general. Just so long as there's actually a decent female model to play as. The original UT has jack and **** by default. I wound up playing as the most manly male in the game because there wasn't much else to play as. --- 2% of GameFAQs users have this in their signature.
