WOTC still care about the lore. In fact illustration of elves in the player handbook still respect the bone structure of the face pictured in the 3.5.. Larian did many things right but as it is now did an awful job in the depiction of the elves. Elves head look way more half elf heads than elven one.
YOu can compare the source material of the 5th edition with the one of the 3.5 the visual representation of the elves is still there. It is not there however in bg3.
What i care about is the Lore. FR elves are already diverse and are not humans. Expecting humans diversity from a race that is not clearly human like i said is out of place.
Is like if i pretended to make a Githianky looking like Monica Bellucci.
