True, but it is a really nice bonus!!
It sort of added to the silliness of it all in SR2-- had this chick decked out like a Prom Queen driving around in cars that would make Barbie envious, but still the biggest badass gangster there ever was.
In GTA, they would have to make adjustments, but it could add a lot of replay value having two options for main characters, with both a male and a female storyline. I'm female of course, but I've seen where guys prefered the female option about SR2 also, as one put it I think, that he'd rather look at the hot chick he created than Niko's ugly mug.
