If customizations are available I may or may not have preferences (in Shadowrun returns/dragonfall I seems to gravitate towards light-brown skinned female elves for some reason). But random assignment wouldn't bother me (I think).
I sorta get that now that there are a bunch of model parameters they could be made user customizable (but doing the UI for that is far from trivial) so it would be possible to give the players choice on the matter.

"It’s not a perfect movie."
"But it’s amazing just the same."
"And part of — for me! — what makes it amazing is how easily it flaunts its rule-breaking. Writing — particularly the very-patterned art of screenwriting — comes with all these preconceived sets of “rules” or “guidelines,” and like most creative rules and guidelines, they’re half-useful and half-dogdick. It’s great once in a while to be reminded why the rules work. But it can be even more illuminating to realize when something works in spite of those rules — in direct contravention to what you expect can and should happen."
"""The film’s world-building is such that here’s how it builds its world:
