Yeah, it's particularly bizarre in games that make you the most important person in the world. You've got the fate of entire nations in your hands, but you're collecting some herbs in a field.
The thing is, there's a way to make that work, and BioWare's done it before. In Mass Effect, you flit around the galaxy finding resources, but you're an explorer and those resources are massively important for the war effort. Scanning planets isn't much fun, but there's at least some logic behind it. In Inquisition, it's just busy work for the sake of it.
Why not just ask for a refund?
You tried asking for a refund on a used 3d card lately?
