Dragon Age: Origins
Originally, the character Shale was meant to be the size of the other golems in the game. However, the developers had trouble with her fitting through doors and originally cut the character entirely. Thanks to a delay in the release schedule, they had some extra time and decided to create a new, smaller character model for Shale. This is referenced in the game as she said she was "chiseled down" by her previous owner.
