Backstory creates a deeper experience and reason for being in the world created. I believe It creates some healthy animosity between the races/factions and it translates well for overall gameplay, especially in a PvP environment.

Looks more and more like with PlanetSide 2 they are reverse engineering a competitor for EVE Online/Dust514. As Smedley has previously stated they will start with FPS ground/air gameplay and then later add in space orientated features.

Add crafting and a deep in-game economy and Sony would be certainly on their way. If they do that they may well beat CCP to the 'Ultimate Sci-Fi Simulator' title. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.

To answer everyone's first question: it's his given, family name.

Damn, I'm jealous you got to talk to the dude!

Really neat guy and it's par-for-course on him to humanize the three factions of Planetside 2, giving them good points and bad ones. That way, I feel, one can choose a side also based on ideology and how you like their world-view rather than "what color do I prefer?" Heck, this is what made the Horde in WoW stand out for me from a background/story perspective over the Alliance. (Yeah, yeah, I am bringing up WoW.)
