I like the new direction. Don't think it borders on fetishistic at all. Something has to make her the hard headed adventurer she will become, and it seems like a valid reason to take up the art of ass kickery.
They just did a horrible job trying to explain it at E3, where they basically said as much. Once the author came out and talked about it, the game looked a lot better.
I agree with you there. Once they elaborated it helped a lot.
