Bioware's meatheads have a tendancy to become the most popular characters in their respective games. You can hardly blame them for doing what they've been told that they do best.
Well, ME2's meathead addition arguably was Jacob Taylor, and he was far from being a popular character*.

*(To be fair, I'm going by anecdotal evidence at best - AFAIR, Jacob did extremely poorly in the popularity votes I've seen on message boards.)
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
