Tomb Raider mega-boobies syndrome

noun phrase. Does this really require a definition? If not, I'll be playing Tomb Raider.

Real citation: "I have several gripes about toy human reproductions: girl dolls always have huge heads of an impossible shape and a wire-thin body (the Bratz® merrily took it to a further extreme), while boys' 'action figures' all have steroid-enhanced muscles and for increased contrast a head way too small. (Typical example: the WWE action figures.) Non-caucasian dolls are desperatingly rare: 'African' and other ethnic Barbies usually are just made in a different color, there are practically no chinese, hindu, african, middle-eastern, eskimo, etc. characters that look half-decently realistic. Oh, and what's with the 'Tomb Raider' mega-boobies syndrome? My Resident Evil Ada Wong (came with an amazing plant creature) has bosoms as big as her cranium. Each."

Made-up citation: "I value many qualities in a potential partner: honesty, loyalty, faith, Tomb Raider mega-boobies syndrome, and depth. Must love meerkats. No freckles please."
