For stamina points, constitution should be a factor as well, especially for the less dexterous. If you lack grace, but are just a bull, you can 'gut it out,' ala Rocky Balboa, and have good stamina. Strength also should play a part, as if you are physically powerful, you fatigue much less for the same effort. However... ENVIRONMENT plays a big boo hoo on the big guys. I have seen thin mountain air drop a mountain of a man solely because he could not get adequate oxygen to supply his massive frame. Not sure if that is possible to code, but speaking realistically, from a LOT of experience in 'less than nice' environments, the average build- albeit athletic- person beats out the wiry (They lack staying power or just freeze in the cold) or the massive (they can not meet their oxygen and calorie requirements to operate well). To be honest, it is easier to keep a skinny guy warm and in food than to keep the bodybuilder in oxygen.
