Wynne: You were watching her. With great interest, I might add. In fact, I believe you were...enraptured. Alistair: She's our leader. I look to her for guidance. Wynne: Oh, I see. So what guidance did you find in those swaying hips hmm? Alistair: No no no, I wasn't looking at...you know her...hind-quarters Wynne: Certainly. Alistair: I gazed...glanced, in that direction, maybe, but I wasn't staring...or really seeing anything even. Wynne: Of course. Alistair: I hate you. You're a bad person.
'Yes, but she's like 'Ooh! Pretty colors!' then 'Muahahaha! I am princess stabbity, stab, kill, kill!''
I liked Alistair, and still overall think he is OK, however I really disliked....
How Alistair handled the entire landsmeet affair and the succession issue, especially if you attempt to spare Loghain after the duel. He goes from "wait I'm going to be elected king? Who decided that?" AFTER killing Cautherine, Loghain, and perhaps many many others beforehand, to going "For the sake of having Loghain executed I will so become king!"
I can understand Alistair being deadset towards Loghain's death -- that alone is justified to me. However, that combined with his disregard of the throne lowers my approval rating of him considerably. It would be nice if the game allowed you to directly try to convince Alistair to more seriously consider becoming king, rather then having to indirectly do it by basically being jaded with Alistair in unrelated matters.
Loghain was 'directly' responsible for Duncan's death. The impact of this event on Alistair is made exceedingly clear throughout his dialogue options. I have to agree with you, but I can empathize with his deadset character (well, video games need these kinds of broad, no-compromise characters).
