Default Re: Dragon Age 2 (Rant included, PG)

I find the game worth playing - and the combat has been immensely improved. I have not found any other games with such a vibrant and detailed combat - I just love taking my rogue in for a backstab and then do a backflip out of harms way while vanishing mid-air to gut the next enemy with a twin stab of my daggers.
However I find the game storyline weak, the characters miss something ( I can't put a finger on it - but especially Hawke seems to be talking a bit like Dolph Lundgren as if reading from a script and not playing the role that is ).

Btw. a possible spoilerish question is included below...

Does anyone know when Isabella is availabe as a companion - I am utterly dissatisfied with Varrick as a rogue as he cannot melee - so I want her instead but I am still in chapter 1 and havent seen her in the hangman yet.

Hither came Conan, the cimmarian, sword in hand. It is I, his chronicler who knows well his saga. Now let me tell you of the days of high adventure!"
