I agree with this post. Considering most MMOs and other NA ports (notably FFXIV, Tera, & BnS to name a few) have a race/height option for shorter characters, in addition to having more suggestive/sexual themes in comparison to PSO2 JP, it's confusing as to why censorship here would be the right choice.
Comparisons aside, by limiting the height meter you're inadvertently limiting the player base in more ways than one.
For example; I play on the PSO2 JP server and have played through the CBT as my main character Zelkova, a character from one of my favorite game series whose character model, despite being an AI, is that of a younger male. The height for my character on the JP server is 143*. From what I've gathered from previous posts regarding the default height on the NA version, I would not be able to create my character in the same way that I've created it on the JP server, which is disappointing. : -(
Does this restrict me from creating my character at a taller height? No.
Does this restrict me from creating an accurate representation of the character I want to play? Yes.
If I or anyone else for that matter wants to play a tribute character and are unable to due to limitations on height, that's another section of the player base that's been marginalized.
I mean, there are plenty of other reasons as to why censorship is bad, but I believe most of the other posters here addressed them.
