If this is the type of thing you're going to cry about, then you should be taking issue with almost every release to date that includes any type of pre-order bonus or DLC for SP campaigns. Because obviously these companies are just damaging your SP experience.
PS: EA has ALWAYS allowed DLC sharing between your single logged in account across all platforms. In the original Dragon Age, if you got a pre-order bonus for PS3, it unlocked for Xbox 360 and PC as well.
That depends how you see as not able to experience the DLC character as the same experience in the game as each character has unique abilities. I do agree without the DLC character, the game can be completed properly.
As for EA allows DLC sharing across platforms, that is not entirely true as I have several examples. I have several DLC armors, ie. Inferno, Terminus and Collector armors, and several headgears on Mass Effects 2 on X360 version. None of those armor show as sharable on PS3 (sharable on PC) when I checked my Bioware account. The paid DLCs such as Shadow Broker doesn't show as sharable on PC nor PS3 (not that PS3 version needs it). Playing the PS3 version linked to the same Bioware account, none of the armors from X360 version appear.
With Dragon Age 2, the free promo armors and weapons from completing the demo show as sharable on both PS3 and X360. Not sure that's because I completed the demo on both consoles or they are automatically sharable. But the Black Emporium DLC from X360 is not sharable on PS3. (It's not needed as long I buy the PS3 version new).
Dragon Age: Origins included DLC on X360 shows on Bioware contents page but doesn't show as sharable with PS3. I have the Ultimate Edition on PS3 version, so don't need the X360 DLCs anyway.
I can't say if I own the PS3 version first, then DLCs become sharable with X360 since I bought all those games on X360 first before the PS3 version.
Here's my Bioware account showing the registered DLCs. Neither ME2 and DA: O DLCs show as sharable with PS3. Not shown in the screen capture, the promo armors and weapons from the DA2 demo show as sharable with PC/PS3/X360.
