Shame they removed the female elites (or assassins if I recall) I mean they would add more diversity to the enemies, they may look the same as normal Elites but their fighting style would have been different as for Cremator, they look badass...but I don't know what they were supposed to do.
Ah well I totally agree with you. I think teh female elites are awesome and such badass charas.
And the crematosr, as crazy internetz says, they were for "cleanning" corpses and stupid mess in cities... Actually I guess they are creepyyyy (but nice) andd it'd be interesting to confront one in a dark alley... Harr harr!
Ahhh, whatever these two charas were suppossed to be or do.... They are such misterious figures in HL2 universe... yes, what a pity they were cut. :/
