Seeing something useful in the options and then not getting it is frustrating.
While I can totally agree with that, being able to choose the loot would only give the illusion of choice. Realistically it would never be practical to pick the coins over the BP fragment, or the fragment over the key. A skill allowing you to choose your loot sometimes rather than always still runs into the same issue, but it sort of functions as a higher % chance to get the best loot, instead of truly being a choice in that sense.
I don't think that's entirely true. There are some obvious ones - always take a key, always take gems over gold, etc. But If you have the choice between gems or a BP frag, which would be better will depend on the player. If I had the choice between a good level 20 item or some small amount of money, I'd rather take the money, even if the item would sell for more, because I don't want the hassle of finding crappy items in my inventory to sell. And there are some other situations where there's not always definitively one best choice.
