On some levels, I don't really understand why booth babes exist. Sure, I get the whole 'sex sells' angle but I'm positive if I ever spoke to a booth babe, she probably wouldn't be able to tell me just how many Dark Brotherhood quests I can undertake in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (not that Skyrim had booth babes, but you get the point.)
Now, obviously Saints Row The Third had booth babes at the EB Games Expo because hey, that's how Saints Row rolls. And Need For Speed: the Run has grid girls because...well, I don't know why. But the frantic, visceral experience of Battlefield 3 doesn't immediately cause me to imagine women with less than 50% of their clothes on. I could be playing it wrong, I guess. The guys from DICE sure didn't mention any unlockable mode where scantily-clad females suddenly emerge from the war-torn buildings of Afghanistan. Hmm, perhaps I'm reading too much into this.
Anyway, here you go.
