Why is there a unique animation for when you cannibalize your defeated enemies or corpses on the roadside? You don't get an animation for when you eat ordinary food like bread or fruit and vegetables, or for when you drink ale or mead or a potion. You don't get an animation for picking flowers or reading books or lying down in bed. NPCs do all of these things, but not the Dragonborn. Yet when you slip on Namira's Ring (an item you can completely avoid by betraying the coven) you get treated to an animation of your character tucking into a dead bandit like a free buffet. It's yucky.
