I mention PC people -- of course not the masterrace
-- because one of my fears is when superficial political correctness gets to be used as a tool for inhibiting creativity and stopping conversations at the gateway of interesting, challenging, thoughtful plot ideas and effective narrative. It's not that there were some concrete PC type objections coming up specifically when I was in P6014, though there were people who felt like they would rather rewrite the original SC2
to make it compelling to some more people, even if it meant making the dialogues/art more sterile. (I wish I could still have some of those e-mails I got back then.)
But overall I think blind fanboyism was a bigger problem, along with the tendency of solving problems the George Lucas way.
I don't know what's the current situation with the writing team, but there were some indications that P6014 isn't much selective when it comes to accepting creative input, and I still remember one of the writer wannabes pissed off about me drawing the shofixti Hiroku in medieval asian-like attire, claiming I further reinforce a harmful anti-japanese stereotype the shofixti is buildt upon.
