The developers added in an option in single player mode to roll your own dice. In their opinion, they added it because they thought it would be fun.
We didn't add the Dice Camera because we thought it more or less random; we added the Dice Camera because some of us think the act of rolling dice is fun in itself. We didn't expect a lot of gamers would use it, but we thought that the people who did use it would really appreciate it. I personally very much enjoy it. We did not expect that including the option to allow players to use the Dice Camera would cause some people to react very negatively, and in some cases, even angrily.

Another cute feature is the ability to play with chits, rather than 3D models.
I know I would appreciate these.
