Which brings me to my point. In Andromeda, the narrative is mostly separate from the gameplay. In CoE, the narrative is the gameplay.
This is a much deeper point than people will realise on face value.
When CoE narrates over a "king" it's not some motiveless empty NPC. It's a real person, who may or may not be on the PC that very moment, making his own plots and schemes, building his own army every second, building ways to prevent assassination...
