Needless to say, I had to restart from the previous save as that character was necessary in order to escape the ship.
I don't think the player has too much health. Think about how quickly you would die in ANY situation. Some there's just no way around. I'm specifically thinking about the time when you're just walking around some town houses and you're bum-rushed by 4 supermutant brutes with miniguns. Then you realize that there's a rocket comping towards you from right above. If you didn't have as much health, there would be no way to survive that encounter. The encounter would be boring if it were any other way though. I'd rather have awesomeness > realisticness.
And I think the rest of the characters just have more health to balance out gameplay. I think they juggled having an overpowered, superhero like character very well through the other creatures.
