Your post can basically be summed up as "I dont care about these things therefore no one else should either". It should come as no surprise that some people prefer a silent protagonist as it makes it easier to project themselves onto the character. It shouldn't be a shock that some people want more dialogue options instead of less. Also I find it amusing when people saying not having a voiced character is jarring, as if the whole party standing around waiting for you to select one of three canned options was somehow less of an interruption.
Personally I find merit in both approaches but it's a valid concern, especially considering the original didn't feature one. This is essentially a franchise reboot in many ways and because it's coming quite early people are naturally upset/curious/whatever. Those opinions are no less valid than your own.
