The Art Director on Dead Space 2 talks about Isaac Evolution.
I don't know, many great protagonist have at least some degree anonymity. (Gordon Freeman never speaks, Master Chief is never seen) It leaves space where each individual player can fill to their own liking, automatically. Sure it can help things be more engaging and can help storytelling, but get it wrong and it suddenly makes the game a lot less perfect. In my opinion, they should have just played it safe and kept him silent.
