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."

There were multiple romance opportunities for all 8 classes at launch. They were just all hetero. But, they announced before launch that they'd be adding same-sex options at a later date, so they're following through with what they promised.

I see.

Well, I still think it won't bring crowds rushing in... even if the G&L community is being catered to.

Yeah, I appreciate them keeping their promises, but TOR has much bigger issues that could be worked on before hawt cyborg on droid luv.

If they want to fix this game drop the 90's arcade space portion and put a real space game in.

This game is fun to play for about a month or two and that is about it. None of the prospective changes will change that one iota.

As usual, EA comes off as completely clueless to what the gaming public likes.

A year ago, this would have been interesting. Now it's just... a year too late to matter.

While Bioware is known for having Romance Opportunities in their games, since this wasn't in at launch... I have to agree that it looks like a desperate afterthought, and probably is too late. There's just too many bad design decisions in SWTOR, and they shouldn't have spent the majority of their budget on the fucking voice-overs.

It's sad, really.

IF they implement the use of the Oculus Rift and ....... This....... And allow the character to have a mechanical hand like Luke and Anakin had so that the lovemaking could include those 'tender special moments of prolonged fisting'....with a Gamorrean....

I would buy this INSTANTLY!

Appropriate that they're adding same gender romance, seeing as how Bioware has been sodomized by EA since they took over.

In BG and BG2 it took like 60 conversations to get Jaheira to fall in love with you,

Oh god! You slept with that nag? Christ, she wouldn't take the hint and leave me alone!

I went with Aerie and I think one other chick. I just remember stumbling out of that drow woman's tent the next morning, and getting bitched at by every female in my party.


I played BG2 about 15 times or so, and I "dated" Jaheira once, just to see what it was like. But yeah, she was a ridiculous nag (although once the romance began, she apologized for it and was much nicer from that point on.)

I typically went with Viconia. Aerie was always too wishy-washy for my tastes.

It was fun if you had all three of them up to a certain "romance" point, though, because it would be this huge catfight between the three of them. It was hilarious how bitchy they got to each other.

From what I have played (all the classes on both sides) there isn't a single person I'd want to fuck of the same sex. From the Mass Effect games the only 2 that I'd even consider were the gay shuttle pilot, and the beefy muscle chunk.... er... um.. Mr Vega. In ME 2 I dated Jax cause she was just so... out there, and Rebecca (the women in the white suit with the boob lines)?

But I agree the romance lines were SOOOO much better in Dragon Age Origins as I did sleep with Morrigan and Alistar.

Too late, it should have been in at launch.

Though I must say having a Steve Blum voiced space pirate was a nice consolation prize.

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...
