As long as all possibilities are realistic I don't have a problem with it. It's already getting more press than it should though. The bust is a body part just like any others.
That's true, but it's a body part that's indisputably more interesting than the ear or the nose (at least to this heterosexual male).
I think this may also be a case where the Asian aesthetic is taking over. Asian women, in general, have less up top, and the "bust" options within FFXIV are probably adequate to represent 90-95% of healthy Asian women.
Anglo and African women, however, do tend to have a little more mass in their chest than Asian women do. The maximum bust setting in FFXIV has got a bust like the 15 year old girl I dated when I was a sophomore in HS. Certainly nothing to complain about, but if you could see her at age 30 you'd realize she wasn't nearly mature yet. I'd say 50% of the women I know wouldn't be able to represent their own endowments in FFXIV, much less an "idealized" version.
All things considered I don't think it's that important. I don't think I was ever tempted, even once, to sneak a peak at some FF 11 boobies, because under all that armor/clothing, every one is pretty shapeless. The game was very aesthetically pleasing, with or without proper cleavage. Edited, Jul 10th 2010 1:41pm by KarlHungis
