If the above is true, I am quite surprised that a small company like PB is able to secure the services of well-known actors/actresses. Most of the time, they're always featured in AAA titles like the later GTA series to name a few.
Regarding big-name actors/actresses, I have no beef with them starring in any videogame, as long as they suit the role they are given (The Chronicles of Riddick and the later GTA series comes to mind), but I do agree with Loki that most of the time, their presence is a gimmick or used to get more publicity.
''They say truth is the first casualty of war. But who defines what's true? Truth is just a matter of perspective. The duty of every soldier is to protect the innocent, and sometimes that means preserving the lie of good and evil, that war isn't just natural selection played out on a grand scale. The only truth I found is that the world we live in is a giant tinderbox. All it takes...is someone to light the match" - Captain Price
