Square Reuses Race Concepts for Final Fantasy XIV

I like these races ( of course I'll have a Hume and elvaan only since those are the only two I play as ), but people have come to love these races. Maybe later on due to an expansion ( which is usual with Square and their MMOs - Taking a look at XI ) We'll probably get more jobs and maybe one more race. Though I think Square loves the races they have already and are not yet ready to thinking up another race yet.

Though I'm sure if people cried out for them we may very well get them.

Unfortunately, whether people like these races or not, this shows Square's usual lack of imagination and willingness to take risks. I think this is contributing to the current decline in popularity of JRPGs.
