Rich's game pet peeves: :-)

Food in games
Laser weapons that overheat
Choosing races in rpg's

Although this "hiring different races" is a bit different than the
standard "choose a race which will pigeonhole your capabilities" sort
of thing.

I'd just abstract that into the craftsman's skill level. A level 6
weaponsmith will make swords better and faster than a character at level 2.
