I am still also playing Dragon Age pretty heavily. I've finished the game once, and have nearly finished it a second time. I'm about 1/3rd the way through on a third character, and have a 4th character started as well. Why the heck would I do this?
Well, the first time through was as a female dwarf rogue and I played it "good." The second character is a human female rogue and I've also played it "good." You get different reactions (very different) as a human than you do as a dwarf. The third character is a human male mage and I'm playing it horrifically "evil." You really get different reactions as a mage, and gender also has an effect. And of course, being basically the devil has a large effect on story/reactions too. The fourth character, barely started, is a male dwarf warrior that I'm running just to get a story piece that doesn't seem to be available to any other combination. I'll leave it at that to avoid spoilering anything. ;)
So, you see, there's a lot of replayability with Dragon Age. You're probably seeing that being touted on every gaming site out there... And it's true! Different race/class/gender/alignment combinations give you wildly different reactions and story options.
I'm also looking forward to the DLC that's supposed to be out "sometime this holiday season." I've always been a fan of DLC (I have an absurd amount of Rock Band/RB2 DLC!) and so I'm happy to see Dragon Age being extended via DLC. :)
