In a skit on Saturday Night Live a few decades ago, a character, stated he liked haiku's because the limitations of poetry, set him free. The same is for setting limitations for character options. If you have every option available, what makes the setting unique?

Not every option fits every setting. There was blogger who went by ABIII, when he ran a game, one player always ran a ninja, no matter what the setting was. Funny for the story, but irritating for the GM.

Imho, a GM has the right and obligation to make restrictions for his setting.
