Agents have handlers, servants have masters, and auxiliaries blab about serving you constantly while not engaging in any espionage.
I am not surprised, these kinds of changes are all over the place these days. I fail to see what it accomplishes beyond whitewashing as avoiding "uncomfortable terms" does nothing to engage with the reason for them being uncomfortable in the first place. Stinks of things will get better if we stop talking about them.
This is not a SEGA-ism but the handling of the changes is consistently poor. Could the Auxiliary ask how you want to be addressed? Least effort solutions like this are not endearing. SEGA had no problem with the original localization by virtue of having made it in the first place, but then jumped bandwagon and fiddled with it.
