There is a relation to Andromeda, you and i are not talking about the same thing.
What does fitness have to do with puffy cheeks? Go to the gym, fit people have all sorts of faces.
Also this has no relation to Andromeda, those faces looked terrible due to botched execution, not an attempt to sabotage the good looks of a character that they themselves designed. Lol.
I'm early versions of the game the female main character was much "more attractive" looking, then somehow before launch her face morphed and became less angular and more round. She also now bares no resemblance to her source model, yet the male character looks the same. Peebee also somehow between prerelease and final had the same chubby cheeks protocol applied to her.
Dude ryder looks identical, female ryder was apparently too hot. There's no denying it.
