I agree with you guys. I broke it off with Alistair whilst being an elf and chose Zevren-he looked so sad. It almost broke my heart to listen to how sad he was. And he's a video game character. They did an amazing job-because-it does crush you a bit when you must leave each other.
Kaydas-I agree-Don't Do Anything Sad, Alistair!
My next character was and is a human noble. Now-I don't have to break his heart.
