Do me a favour, look at his filmography and tell me that there isn't a very clear trend over the last two decades.
Oh, and stop getting so over emotional about it.
The "clear trend" indicates to me that he enjoys playing certain types of characters. Maybe you've noticed Christian Bale likes playing dark, brooding characters.
Point out in my posts where I've expressed a particular emotion.
