my 2 cents: - I think the "halfling" from the other game looks better than BG3 halflings. - I think gnomes look better than halflings in BG3. Maybe its because gnomes are expected to be less human like than halflings???
I have problems to imagine how a good looking intimate scene between a tall person and a very small person would look like. Especially if they try to use the same scene for the same event when one char (you + companion or other NPC) or both chars (you + dream ) could be any race or gender.
Maybe there are reasons why we hear about half elfs and half orcs, but not about half halflings or half gnomes.
Sorry, neither my english nor my anatomy knowledge is big enough to explain why I like this look more than the other.
