I want a game that focuses on play, not character optimizations and the mini-game of "what should I/need to pick" at this level.

Then, 3ed D&D and its derivatives are not for you.

The problem with Paladins is that most people are bad at running them and most GMs are poor at handling them. Unlike virtually all the other classes which require little to zero effort and cooperation to get them played out right, Paladins pretty much need a very mature, intelligent and committed player coupled with a sensible, flexible and level-headed GM and a gaming group that's fine with such a dynamic at the table. The only other class that gets close to such situation are Clerics, but since you can pick an easy-going deity if you don't enjoy pigeon-holing your gaming style it's pretty much mitigated.

Sometimes, this works. Most of the time it doesn't and deteriorates into Lawful Stupid/I Really Should Be Playing Judge Dredd or WH40k Inquisitor problems on player-side and/or "Let's give the Paladin a choice between burning an orphanage and sexually violating the princess and see how he/she gets out of it har har har" problems on GM-side.

Paladins should be just plain taken out of the Core Rulebook, replaced with the upcoming Warpriest, and slapped into APG with a big honkin' disclaimer "Warning, may cause implosion of gaming groups and permabans on Internet". Alas, that ship has sailed, because backwards compatibility and tradition. Getting Paladins out of CRB is about the only major request I have for PF 2.0 if it ever comes out.

Sure, there's sexual dimorphism. But if you put it in game and say that Women are -2 STR, the next thing that happens is "I think women should actually be -2 INT too, because how many female CEOs and politicians are there?" and what follows is pure madness, destruction, deaths and permabans.

You should refer to yourself as a "legal wrangler" or "purveyor of litigious waters" instead. Safer that way!

So, when a player acts out a conversation between him/herself and their cohort/eidolon/animal companion/familiar/intelligent magic item you're going to tell them to stop with the thespian masturbation? ;-)

If you can't handle complex NPCs, maybe it's time to go back to "You meet a CN Human Fighter 3, end of description" of yore. There are plenty of modules and campaigns by publishers who cater to the "everything was simple and better when Gary ran the show" crowd.

To me, Lawful Good is very easy to encapsulate. I just compare it to fictional characters who I think match Lawful Good.

Two examples of this are Michael Carpenter and Optimus Prime.

When I want to talk about house-rules, I'll go to the house rule forum. (which I do from time to time)

I feel like this thread got moved because it offended someone and placed in a sub forum that the topic does not reflect.

I think it's a part of a global conspiracy against you. No, I really do, I totally get my posts moved all the time and every time it happens there's a smiling bald guy standing right next to my window. It's SKR, I'm pretty sure.

Dear OP,

You walked into a forum populated by vocal minorities of all sorts and you started a thread which was pretty much the equivalent of asking if there's anybody in here that actually considers right to bear arms/homosexuality/religion/white people/Muslims/Nazis "normal".

You might be new to the Internet, but let me tell you that implying in the thread title that any item X is "normal" (and by so inferring that items Y, Z, X-1 or whatever are not "normal") is pretty much throwing a live grenade into a gas tank.

What Paizo did was not ostracize your views, but prevent a major flamefest which would end up in several tempbans, grar and precious time lost on moderation instead of making awesome stuff.

Iron Gods is a smash it.
A few years down the line, Distant Worlds AP is announced.
Mikaze faints, Drejk and I get drunk.
The OP dons his 'dwarvish' utilikilt, grabs his trusty axe and drives toward Seattle to explain some things.
Gets pulled over near Albaquerqe for speedin and yelling 'elven pansies' at officers.

When can we expect Paizo to put a beholder or mindflayer in one of the bestiarys?

Never, it belongs to WoTC, and therefore can never be in anything that isn't WoTC stuff.

However... we do have intellect devourers

Which makes me wonder why the Final Fantasy games were able to get away with using mindflayers in several games. Granted they can NEVER call them illithid. But it appears they are able to get around the legal issues with no problem. I suppose Paizo could do the same if they wished but do not wish to take the risk and also needlessly piss off WOTC/Hasbro.

They didn't "get around the legal issues". They're possibly infringing the copyright. However, between Square being a Japanese company under Japanese jurisdiction, being active in an industry that doesn't put them in competition with WotC and several other factors, WotC didn't sue them (yet).

Paizo has used Eye of the Deep once (in Legacy of Fire), but James Jacobs commented afterwards that it was way too close to sidestepping Beholder IP problem for his liking and that EotD won't be reappearing in Pathfinder products.

I've prolly mentioned this already, but....

In my Skulls'n'Shackles game which I'm running, my fiancée plays a Varisian thief-girl-turned-pirate and is having an on-and-off romance with a NPC female aasimar (shh, nobody knows she's angel-blooded) pirate captain.

Yeah, I'm hitting on my soon-to-be-wife by means of a female NPC in a game about pretend dungeons and imaginary dragons. Yes, there are fade to blacks. Yes, the entire gaming group enjoys it. We get to act out a reflection of our romance in-game, in a fashion. If anybody needs Kleenex for the cerebral haemorrhage Ashiel's and my stories might have inducted here, have one, wipe that blood away and get over yourself.
