I think it also comes from our fascination with our own bodies.
We've come along way from our cave dwelling ancestors. WE've been able to
push our own bodies to the limit making them do things thought of as
unthinkable a few years back.

Also, one could also look as mobile suits or whatever as more like cavalry
with the versatility of an infantryman. With the perfect control system,
you van get these things to do almost anything. The battles in 08th MS Team
should illustrate this oint.

Also worth watching for good "realistic" humanoid action: GASARAKI
