Nice post, thanks for your feedback!

Yes, it can lag a bit, and loading takes some time. It's like that due to large number of NPCs and placeable objects in the area - but seeing how huge this zone is, we can't really have any less.
It was even larger at one point and I was forced to remove some stuff from there (loading zone used to have more stuff in it, and there were more holograms displayed in the Design Departments, for example).

Can you give some examples?

I think it would have been better trying to find someone who could reasonably approximate the Obsidian actor's voice for something small like that.

Using other people to try mimic already existing characters' voices is something I'd never do (it's hard enough to find good actors for new roles ). Splicing is never perfect, but personally, I think we did a pretty good job with some party members' lines on M4-78. I agree Grenn could sound better - I actually have few alternate lines for his "M4-78 fuel" conversation, none of them perfect.
