>Is it even possible to get run over in china? Chinese drivers tend to be super careful about not running people over.

Ignoring the reference for a moment, yes, though your second statement is also true due to a simplified vehicular legal code.

Despite the insanity that is average street in a Chinese metropolis most drivers try to avoid running down pedestrians not out of any moral obligation but because they'll lose any settlement case in court. Any type of accident involving pedestrians, bikes, scooters, motorbikes, cars, trucks and or buses are legally resolved using the system of "Whoever was driving the larger vehicle is at fault."
This usually means paying the family of the victim a lot of money even if they intentionally threw themselves into traffic to be hit. Or that's how things were 10 years ago when I was last over. Westerners or those with money are (or were) advised not to drive themselves as it makes you a bigger target for those trying to take advantage of this usual scam.

It always irks me when people portray the Tau as somehow devoid of sensation or animal instinct. Remember that before the Ethereals showed up, the Tau were embroiled in species-wide infighting that would've made the both World Wars look like shouting matches between drunk strangers. You can see in a lot of Tau fluff, how even Tau themselves chafe under the Ethereals' all-encompassing social engineering. This isn't a part of themselves that they're blissfully unaware of, but something that are very aware of and constantly fear, calling it the Terror, calling it Mont'au

Though they've become very good at suppressing it and denying it, inside every Tau is a creature of great wrath, caprice, and passion.

What I never liked in 40k is that 90% of the lore is just the propaganda line for whatever faction's codex it is.
>No Grey Knight has ever fallen to chaos
>No SoB has ever fallen to Chaos
>No Tau has ever gone against the greater good (except Farsight)
>No imperial citizen would ever knowingly associate with xenos
In most sci-fi series, they leave room for gray areas on the fringes of societies, but 40k just handwaves everyone into being more robotic than the average necron. Of course, in the game we never see these place as we're always playing the loyal armies of whatever faction we have, but tidbits of lore here and these imply such people and place exist even in 40k. There are pirates and mercenaries so there must be places such people are accepted, on the fringes or just outside of imperium space. If the Space Marines ever make so much as a pit stop there the whole place is bound to get purged, but they must exist.

I'm sure there are desolate, sparsely populated places in the tau empire, with only a few representatives from each caste and only a few Gue'la. The etherals only bother to stop by ever few months at such a tiny little outpost, and the locals have long since lost their imperial way of life. The handful of tau mingle with the handful of humans, and maybe some things happen that wouldn't happen if they were living on T'au, or on a warship, or even if the resident ethereal wasn't so lazy. The earth caste mechanics take on some human apprentices, some water caste merchant develops a fetish for pink skin, and a fire caste police officer gets a human partner (and together they fight crime). At least until Orks burn the whole planet to the ground.

Fine.

Slaaneshi cultists kidnapped a bunch of people and species and sacrificed them. However they did not die but were transported to the palace of the Prince of Pleasure. There they were twisted and mutated. Orks grew dicks, the Tau became bearable to look at.... Then their minds were rewired. The ork believed his new dick was a weapon a sought to slay as many as he could with it (with gory results). The Tau woman sought to advance the greater good through peace and appease the ork. Every time she failed and would be ripped apart and yet every morning she arose renewed and the Ork remained just as insatiable. He resolved never to stop until he kills her once and for all.

Actually it's usually more along the lines of it simply being too much extra work; for non-player races, you're possibly doubling the workload. Which is why it's easier to go for mono-gendered cultures as a cop-out method to try to balance out gender representation.

I prefer indoctrination theory, also Bioware said that their original plot was that mass effect technology accelerated star age cycles (Hinted at in ME2 Tali's mission) and that the Reapers were in fact saving the galaxy from destruction and saving the collective consciousness of all sentient creatures who made it to their tech level.

ME2 really suffered from completely throwing out any idea of immersion the original had.

I mean, they segmented everything into linear combat zones with literal score screens at the end.

Personally, I've always been let down by the fact that you can even fuck Tali at all in the first place.

I was fine with a romance, but the whole design concept of her species should have made physical sex impossible. They didn't wear environment suits just because it was cool, they did it because they were supposed to mean something--their isolation from everyone else in the galaxy on a physical level was supposed to mirror their isolation from the galaxy on a social and cultural level, but they changed all that, they weakened the whole motif they had going on by making it so that they just get a nasty flu from outside contact, instead of cold absolution of having it kill them without exception. And they betrayed that design concept all for pandering.

That romance plot for Tali that never was could have been tragic and heartbreaking, in the way that there would always be this distance between Shepard and Tali that they could never cross, but it could also have been touching how they stood together despite that distance, it could have made the final reveal that much more meaningful, it could have been unique in the way that it defied the idea of sex as the endgame of a relationship, and for that, maybe even a bit fucking brave. But that didn't happen, because that would have to have been written by Bioware, and Bioware doesn't do brave.
