I understand what you're saying, this is one issue that took us a long time to decide on. Originally the game was going to allow you to take your character with you into whatever game you wished, but there are so many ways that causes problems both in development and in making the game work for players that we shelved it for later.
Right now the focus is on re-creating that party gameplay feeling. So the idea is that you are going to form a party and play though the campaign, you can also start another party with other friends, but the party you create is what moves through the missions of the campaign.
Right now we're talking about allowing you to change your character or perhaps join with another party in-between each campaign but we haven't finalized that yet.
