There is little I hate more than the protagonist in a VN being a bland dude without a face. It's meant to help the reader to insert themselves, but paradoxically that breaks the immersion even more for me for the reasons you stated... It's entirely unrealistic the girls would be into such a guy without personality.
I'm not saying everyone (or really, anyone) to agree with me. I know that most people are okay with unrealistic escapism, but I definitely wouldn't be able to "escape" if it's unrealistic and I can't get immersed. I'd be too aware I'm reading/playing something meant only to pander.
That every single opposite-sex character in Awakening and Fates is romancable is a bit of a turn-off for me, but like I metioned before, if the games are still good, I won't mind too much
