Yeah but most anime looks the same in general, its the outfits and hair that makes the characters distinct. Toriyama just has a more unique style than most, that's why its very distinct when he draws something. And I think it's absurd as a Gamer to dismiss a game because of it's art style. People did that with Zelda: Wind Waker and missed out, and it plagues great games like Okami with horrible sales.
that analogy doesnt really work though
in zelda games you dont need some emotional attachment to link. but in an rpg you might become attached to a specific character and put more effort into that character than others. part of the initial draw to a character can be appearance.
