I feel like the RPG was a pretty bad idea, too. The enemy list relating to Aliens is played out, with relatively little variety compared to almost any game out there. Their hand-to-hand nature would tend to make RPG combat repetitive -- what's going to happen in this mission? Well, aliens might burst out of the walls and floors and ceilings and try to eat my Marines to death. The suspense is kind of missing, especially the OMG! ALIENS!!! WTF!! thing that the movies revolve around.

Yeah, xenomorphs have grown a bit stale. You already know pretty much everything about them. Granted, Obsidian could have taken some creative liberties here and there. Xenomorphs are supposed to retain characteristics from their host, so if there were other non-xenomorph aliens to impregnate, that could have made for some interesting enemy variety.
