*In full whine mode*
1) Simply say, I was like "WTF" when I first saw the design of that Tarutaru race in FF14, Lalafell.
2) The design fails, fails badly. The whole body and head proportion just doesn't look right. And the look of their face, ug oh so "moe萌" (sorry I can only use this japanese word to describe), and totally not my cup of tea.
3) The name also fails (Dammitaru-> dammit..lala?). If they keep the same race name I may actually try to like them. Btw I don't think I can pronounce the other race name >_>! Why they love to make things more complicated?
4) Okay I am never a fan of the art director in FF12, so I won't hope
