I'm guessing none of you played Dragon Age or Mass Effect or you'd have a better idea of what to expect from Bioware romance options. It's not pornographic, but it makes the story more interesting if your characters have relationships with one another and aren't just random party members defined only by their class. And having choice in how the relationships develop makes it feel more like a game. It is a little bit of a guilty pleasure hoping to win over Liara or Morrigan, but it's harmless fun and quite RPG like.

I thought the sex scene in ME was really well done, and the media had no clue what it was fucking talking about (as is the case in 99% of everything it talks about) when it complained about it. OMG THERE IS A SIDEBOOB SHOT OF LIARA FOR ABOUT 0.4 SECONDS!

But the actual "romance" options are really just stupid. In BG and BG2 it took like 60 conversations to get Jaheira to fall in love with you, and it was a gradual, slow build up that felt fairly realistic. In Bioware games since then, it seems it takes four "nice" responses and boom, every girl in the game swoons over you... Or, in the case of DA2, you can be an asshole to the elven mage girl, and she'll still show up to your mansion for nookie in Act 2. I figured I'd pork her just to make Isabela jealous, and oh, hey, I guess you moved in now? Nice... Can I get rid of you? No? Great...
