Real world references

Movies, games, celebrities and other popular culture; World of Warcraft is full of real world references in the game. It removes the sense of being in another world that fantasy games is all about, but it also add plenty of humour. Most of Blizzard's games have Easter eggs that refer to their other games, so I guess they don't take as much damage as other games - people who play expect to see them.

For WAR, I would prefer if they didn't include any; I like the feeling of exploring another world, and real life references just ruin it. There are other ways to bring humour into the world.
