Well, my brother's campaign includes a 4m giant PC called Shortie.

Seriously - The real thing seem to be ona par with Dragons when it comes to serious magic. In fact, the Giants and the Dragons warred across the universe before most of the gods were born. The giant stats in the RQ rules are to these giants what dream dragons are to the real thing. ie they are "walking lumps of heroplane" as a friend once said.
