In most cases, yes, I agree he's an annoying little robot...
But as I glided through the Thawning Ice-Age Buildings, it became much easier to avoid them (and here comes my suggestion/complain), because most, if not all (as it was being my case) buildings of that specific region followed the same pattern (big lobby + stairs leading each to a hallway leading to some small rooms, if they weren't destroyed [apparently the greatest changes between 2 buildings was which rooms were destroyed]).
Now I know we're in beta and such things will be polished, content will increase, etc. so this is why i'm not truly sad from this =D.
But, about the little robot dude... no, they're not worse than rhinos
