I've finished all but the Dwarf Noble Origins now. I can kinda guess why they didn't do the Human Commoner now, considering between the Alienage Elf and Casteless Dwarf, you've got the extreme poverty and socially downtrodden angles pretty well covered. So unless the Human story was some kind of Merchant class or something it probably wouldn't have contributed much new.
And along with the murder spree at rapey mcrapeyson's Palace in the City Elf Origin, the bit in the Commoner Dwarf story when you take off your helmet during the proven to show "Yes, this lower class Scum just bested your best warriors. Suck on it!" is a great moment.
On a side note *Puts on armchair military strategist hat* the plan at Ostagar wasn't a bad idea in itself. It's apparently a natural chokepoint where a smaller force could easily hold a much larger force such as the HORDE and the idea of using a Hammer and Anvil
is a solid plan. But it went horribly wrong because 1.) The hammer part of the Hammer and Anvil never actually happened because Loghain just fucked off with his troops and 2.) Because the Anvil Part of the plan involved the defenders leaving their defensive line to bait the horde, they were easily taken down by the larger numbers. And even worse, if the wiki is to be believed Logahin was the one who came up with the plan to begin with. And the most damaging part of this is that the Elite of the armies were right there getting slaughtered, except for Loghains troops.
True, the idea of the King fighting next to the grey wardens was pretty dumb, Loghain leaving them to die meant 1.) Dead King, 2.) Succession Crisis because Dead King 3.) Devastated Grey Wardens who you also criminalized so they aren't gonna do much to help 4.) The Vanguard of the Army dead and 5.) The Darkspawn horde are past the Ostagar chokepoint and now overrunning the rest of the fairly flat country with little opposition.
Oh, and the refugee crisis and bandit problem because the the army is dead or pulled back and everyone else is either turning to banditry or fleeing the horde. Also FOOD CRISIS because nobody is working the farms now because they're too busy fleeing the horde or being dead. So yay Loghain? *Slow Clap*
Now if I missed something important, I apologize, I'm still in the early game so I'm going off what I've seen thus far(and what little I remember from the last times I played it). However, if there was some kind of BETTER plain Loghain had after he decided to fuck off and leave the king and army to die at Ostagar, I'm at a loss so far what it is, because now he has to raise a new army, without any grey wardens to assist, I suspect nobody else is coming to help so he's got whatever bannermen he can raise in the next month or two before the country is overrun by not-orcs and again, the whole incoming famine and trade no doubt grinding to a halt is gonna be a really bad year or so for the country assuming anyone survives. Gondor may call for call for Aid but no Calvary is coming and orcs have broken the gates.
