No I don't because I actually read and understood my own post and my line of reasoning . I made it very clear that the thought process that went into choosing the actress for Cere is an annoyance to me. You know who the racists are? Disney are the racists. Because THEY apparently feel it is important to have a black female counterpart for a white male lead. I think that it's silly and unnecessary. That is all.

They did not follow an artistic vision. They did not pick the "best" actress for the job. They picked someone to fit their inclusion agenda.

I'm also curious as to what makes you think Cere is SJW material... because other than being female, there's nothing in her character dialog that I saw that could be used to put her in the incel's SJW column. her character arc is pretty much the polar opposite of SJW, since you literally end up saving her from herself.
Male white lead gotta have a black female co-lead = "SJW light" and what really turns it into proper SJW is that she's unattractive as fuck. They made her look like a frog (those eyes!) so no one gets the idea that she might be a sexy sidekick or just deco or shit.
And this is why I can't take SJW arguments seriously at all... got it, so a black female character instantly makes it SJW... FFS. It's always "wah, wah, feminism, SJW, stop forcing it, it should be organic having [insert race / gender here]!"... then when a game just uses an actress of color (who the in-game model is based on btw), without trying to "push an agenda", making her as flawed, if not more so than the main character, it's still "Wah! SJW!" Thank you for clarifying. I will ignore any arguments you make with "SJW" in your commentary from now on.

Random SW fan blurbs:
* Stormtrooper ambient dialog is amazing... talking about having a 100% accuracy on the range and having the high ground. And the fact they actually get scared of you.
Yup! I wish their actions matched their words. One Trooper said, "I'm only stationed here." I wanted to let the guy go, but unfortunately, the AI was programmed to shoot at me, so I just ran past. I think it would've been awesome if Respawn added a mercy option, and even more so if sparring would lead to the possibility of reinforcements.

Why would it be more adult content when Star Wars is pretty well aimed at kids?
Adults, too, but more kids. Their bread and butter is children. It always has been. It always will be.
