There's a degree of alienness to their faces which elves in BG3 do not have, because they are just humans with pointy ears.
It is a pity that the GW is also starting to lose ground. With the release of new editions, Aeldari and Elves (Aelves, if you like Age of Sigmar) are becoming more human-like.
Thats a shame, I haven't seen the newer tranch of codexes and so on, but the thing I always liked about them was how alien they are, depite superficially looking "human-ish" The elongated faces and the very attrctive yet cruel look. And the fact that they could theoretically be mistaken for humans, but their manner, attitudes, culture, behavior were as far removed from humans as ork culture was, just in different ways.
