Expansion on the current companion's story lines?

I'm not one to display my emotions so openly (especially on the internet), but I have to say this.
I became deeply saddened when I finished Vette's storyline along with my class quest. It was like everything just came to a sudden stop. As if finishing a book with the phrase:
Spoiler
I HATE that. I WANT to know what happens next.

I've tried leveling up the affection of other companions. All they do is talk. No missions. Nothing.
All you get is a taste of their back story, which is nothing compared to Vette's storyline.
I guess that's a given considering it has a lot more content, and that she's such a likable character.

Now that all the deep story is over, it feels like I'm playing WoW. Mindlessly doing dungeons, accepting quests by mashing space bar knowing that all the dialogue that comes from your character from now on is just recycled phrases.

Someone please tell me that they're going to do something about this. Making the other companions have a deeper story, and expanding on the ones you have finished.

I do know that it has something to do with the lvl of affection you have with each of your companion characters. However I do know that there are certain companion characters that have a deeper background than most of the others you have beacuse they play a key part of your characters main story. All anyone can do is suggest that you try another Sith Warrior and work on your other companions other than Vette.

I've gotten 3 other companions to 4000 affection. All they want to do is talk.

Well, you can always roll another character. I'm under the impression that each class has one companion that's particullarly fleshed out.

They said as the game progresses they will add more to the companion stories/romances and maybe a few benefits.

I recall this too, I believe it was a joystiq article, it mentioned the smuggler writer wanted to write the first in game relationship that goes from courtship to a possible divorce.

I am not hunting it down though, this ain't wikipedia.

Interesting. I'm actually curious as to how they're going to pull off extra companion content for those who have 10000/10000 affection. Having max affection makes it feel like it's all said and done.
