Merlkir has a point though. While Oblivion overdid it a bit in the "bloated retard"-facial department, they did often look like people. And people actually occasionally looked different than other folks of their race. The whole deal Oblivion had with the sliders was a lot better than a bunch of pre-defined faces in Morrowind. Each race there had 2 genders, 5 faces and 5 hairstyles or something like that which would lead to a bewildering variety of fifty combinations. And that is before you discard the positively hideous and ridiculous ones.
And frankly, I kinda liked the Oblivion Orcs. They were orc-y and looked well-built for the whole warring business but they weren't all necessarily 'roid-raging berserkers.
Uriel Septim had quite the imperial face on him by the way. He looked like a puffed-up glutton which I suppose would be easy to achieve, being emperor of the known world.
