The Old Republic Roadmap Includes Same Gender Romance Plans

There's a new "State of the Game" update on the Star Wars: The Old Republic Developer Blog, discussing the future of this MMORPG set a long time ago. They outline plans for a version 1.7 update that will bring "some interesting changes to a special PvP area that you have all been asking about" as well as a visit from The Gree Enclave. They also discuss the upcoming Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion, touching on what it will include, and promising further details over the next several months. Though there isn't a lot of nikky-nikk of any sort in the Star Wars movies (besides R2D2 interfacing with any slut computer with an access panel), they say they are still working on a response to a clamor for same gender romance in the game, saying that they are still working on companion characters towards this end, and in the meantime they "are adding SGR with some NPCs on Makeb and do intend on pursuing more SGR options in the future."

Yeah bit of a broad brush, I only meant the handful of comments assuming it's pornographic, but yours wasn't clueless. I also agree with panbient that Bioware has been making it too simplistic lately. The relationships in ME2 and 3 felt basically like a choose your own adventure novel. It was more interesting in Dragon Age when there was at least some element of trying to figure out the character's personality and what they respect.

Still, I like when story driven RPGs involve managing relationships and I've always respected Bioware for including non-traditional relationship options.

Both 'sex' options I got in Mass Effect basically involved my character going about his business trying to save the galaxy and having a female character essentially throw herself at me. In ME2 I screwed up and lost Miranda's trust prior to the final mission, didn't stop her from popping up between cutscenes to say "Hey there, we got some time to kill before this final conflict... wanna give it a go ;)" with pretty much those exact words.

You can call it added depth if you want, but it's only ever seemed hokey and shoehorned in my experience.

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.

Seriously. Straight or gay, how hard up do you have to be to be "clamoring" for romance in a videogame? Least of all one with graphics as simplistic and visuals as ugly as those in TOR? Though I guess if implied cartoon sex is your thing, it's a win. Whatever trips your trigger.
Ever peruse Skyrim Nexus or Oblivion Nexus !? Maybe the other Nexus sites too....

Hey hey hey, you leave them adult mods out of this! haha j/k

If you can't sell it based on gameplay, time to put some porn into starwars. Next month they can add in S&M.

This seems as good of a place as any to dig out Hardware Wars.
