Why Do Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Female Characters Look so Ugly?

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but there is nothing subjective about what BioWare artists have done for the new Mass Effect. The actress for the female version of Ryder must be wondering why the heck her face was modified so drastically for the game. It’s actually quite interesting, since the male Ryder looks pretty consistent with his modelآ—what did BioWare mean by this?

آ…the female characters from the old "Mass Effect" games (mainly ME1-2) were really attractive and feminine, so I would love to know what happened to BioWare as a whole after the release of "Mass Effect 2." Because by the looks of it, BioWare slowly started to turn into an SJW studio around 2010 (that’s the year that ME2 launched. However, ME2’s development started around 2008). Furthermore, I bet that Anita Sarkeesian and Feminist Frequency had a part in that transformation. As a matter of fact, I remember a really good post about the matter over at the Obsidian forum (Luzarius posted that one back in 2015). The post is called "Mature discussion on LGBT/Feminists who want to censor games," and it’s a truly interesting read I have to say, especially since the post is now even more relevant today than it was back in 2015. (So much for the "She’s not going to take your games away" part because we all know how that turned out in the endآ…)
