Having a little cut here just to tally up.
So far its
2a - 3
2b - 4
Had to read all the posts twice, some did not seem to say either way.
Please keep on topic and we do not need the dooms day sayers :P.
I do realize how my shooting through the ranks Jedi Sentinel would miss out on Kira regardless. I also kind of want to see Mako, if she's really a good male
option (she's young-acting enough that I wonder if it can be done well), become a s/s option for everyone, but understand what that means for my friend who's a Smuggler right now.
So having new companions available -- regardless of level -- seems best.
