Okay, one last time. I think the point that others have tried to make here is that BG3 takes place in the Forgotten Realms, not in Middle Earth.
Forgotten Realms Elves have their own characteristics that greatly differ from Middle-Earth Elves (like the fact that Forgotten Realms Elves are shorter than humans).
Hence, Middle-Earth lore is irrelevant to this discussion about making the Elves appearing in BG3 more like the lorewise Elves from the Forgotten Realms, who I agree a bit alien (as in inhuman) looking as it was demonstrated by the DnD concept art included on this subforum.
Adult content creators, Elves from other fantasy universes (WoW, Guildwars) are also irrelevant to our discussion.
PS: If you call the Noldo Elves "High Elves", then no Legolas was not a High Elf, as he is a Sindarin, a Wood Elf in Tolkien's lore (Galadriel was a Noldo elf, you can call her High Elf).
