Conlang Guilt

in a project I began yesterday, Purified Nzva, I feel it necessary to make
the genitive singular ending and the plural endings -s/-z/-es and -s/-z/-ez
respectively (varying as english does.  After realizing that this is
painfully similar to their English correlaries and felt an almost
irresistable urge to change it to something more *exotic*.  Have any of you
felt this need to intentionally steer away from the convention in natlangs
familiar to you?
