Dragon Age II's Hawke might be a male for official marketing purposes, but on my Xbox 360 he's a saucy female rogue with a fiery temper. Check out some highlights of playing the demo as a lady Hawke.
It's a pity the character creation was disabled for demo purposes. Otherwise my Hawke would have been a little bit more ginger. Still, I'm mostly satisfied with her appearance, if not her combat acumen. There's a big battle towards the end (or what I assume is the end) of the demo that keeps wiping my party clean, and no amount of mage-kiting or backstabbing is getting me through it.
That has nothing to do with my Hawke being a female, of course, and everything to do with me rushing through the demo without looting health potions.
