On the subject of Targeting Eyes... [ Game -> Editorial ]

More info on Game: Fallout 3

I just wanted to post this on the main page to catch the attention of any lurking developers. There is quite a bit of talk coming from Bethesda about how they don't want to add in the option of targeting eyes in VATS. For example, from the Strategy Core interview with Emil Pagliarulo:

SC: No shots to the eyes?
EP: No, and I'll tell you why. We talked about that, we prototyped it, and when you play the game and see it in such high def, when you shoot someone in the eyes you expect the head to blow up anyway. Shooting someone in the head has the same effect. If you get a critical on them they get dazed and stuff.

I can see shooting. But what about melee weapons and unarmed combat? Surely if you go to punch someone in the eye, their head won't just up and explode, right? If you aren't strong enough to fight the person outright, it's a perfect way to incapacitate your opponent long enough so that you can either run away or perform some other devious maneuver on him. It's the same thing with targetted shots to the groin. It's a perfect way to deal a devasting blow to someone without killing them or causing them much irreperable damage. Know what I mean?
