In-game just now, I saw a Commando (huge gun on her back and all) with her Elara companion out, both decked out in the bikinis.
It looks absolutely absurd.
There is no way in this universe that is anything but a teenage kid or a very immature adult.
Seeing a Sith like that, would think less of it. Seeing hundreds of Sith like that and then hundreds of Rep side characters...yeah...it's absurd :/
It does seem to dye down for awhile, but then jumps right back up! But never really dies down.
