Hoping that the last convo with a LI be like a daily q, you can always come back for a hug, waiting for new content to be added.
This, actually, would probably be enough to alleviate the "wha? it's all over?" feeling, especially since we don't get to see the "maximum resolution" version of our Companions except during cutscenes.

(Actually, maybe Bioware can just make the interior of your Ship render in maximum resolution? No combat involved, just turn the "holoprojector bug" into a permanent thing. As a Consular, at one point I had about 6 guests hanging around in a conference room before the end of Act 3, but I'm sure even that's manageable).

It is really stupid to have married the companion ... and that's it until bioware adds more quests...seriously? I mean, I know its "hahaha so funny that's marriage" ********, but if i kept giving my wife awesome gifts and spending time with her....i'd get more than just a cold shoulder LOL
Perhaps something like this:
If romanced an occasional (or related to more gifts/affection gained even beyond max) .1) some flirt scenes/options. 2) random poking fun of other companions/options 3) of course, what everyone wants; but too chicken to say... more sex scene options.

i also agree with Droidist, they should change what your romanced companion says when you want to talk while questing, exploring etc.. because it's the sames responses as when you meet her/him, like nothing is different.

Looks like a lot of us are on the same page when it comes to the "simple things" in regular interaction. SilentKitty's metion of a "hug" is cool, I like that idea! Mostly because it's just something "different". Another idea I had is the "emote" function. For instance if I click "rally" in a group of players/NPCs they all jump, clap and cheer. I think it would be cool if I targeted my companion (and if married) I could do a /hug or /kiss and it would do it.

I also agree with Applesauce on changing or adding to the "canned" responses", when just clicking on the companion. "YES SIR!" Just doesn't seem like the appropriate response for my wife LOL! I think these are small things taht could be implemented. Someone also mentioned to just change the scenery. For me, my entire "Romance" took place in a med bay. A MED BAY?! How drepressing!

As for future content, I think mini-games/stories that are REPEATABLE like flashpoints would be cool. I'm not looking for XP or credits. Outside of being married and romance in general, to do repeatable social stories with otehr companions would be cool too, for example:

I'd never thought I'd be a guy on here arguing for more "romance" content LOL!!, but after hours of killing and killing and killing, it's totally a different change. I'm just glad I'm not the only "weirdo" that wanted more "romance"!! It's nice to know others want this content..

In my opinion the romance thing, and all the companion stuff really add something to the game, that's why i'd like more content.

Almost the same here. Well, I liked the possibility of romance in both Kotors, but for Swtor i didn't think that i'd care about it that much since it's an online game, but like i said, it really adds something.
The good thing about online games is that the content can be updated , so let's hope we'll have more romance content and companion stories, quests, more interactions and cutscene, etc...!
For now, just adding the possibility to interact with your romanced companion when you get back to your ship would make me happy, instead of getting those random canned responses (wich need to be changed too).

Also the info in your spoiler makes me think why DONT we do those "companion missions" together? I've had a few where Elara says "I got to go off and do ____", screen goes black and shes back. I'm like "well I would have came along". I know it's possible because as a trooper you had to go off and do a few what I call "side missions", one wasn't even about killing. Check it out:

Spoiler

I definitely don't want them to "back fill those missions", as I'm too far past that in my story, but anything new going forward should definitely have that side filler.

The random canned responses are a bit irritating (well some are, some are rather funny) but they should really evolve through the story. I still have Khem occasionally telling me he wants to eat me on my SI. And Jaesa's don't work with her being LS (yes I play a LS leaning Sith, honorably evil). ANd I am tired of being called my lord by Quinn on my SW (yes I married him) and sith by Andronikos on my SI (just finished that one last night). Now while it would be awesome to hear them call you by your toons name I know that I probably impossible given the variety of names in the game, but maybe they could give you the option of picking a "pet name" or something maybe.

It's amazing how most of us have the same requests and concerns! Seems like a lot of us want this option.

I agree, in the "pet name" thing. Once my male trooper called Elara "darling", but she got all mad and said "this is serious!" I also get irritated that she is always like "Yes sir!". In a strange "fantasy play" that's kinda of funny but realistically I don't think my wife would call me "sir", especially in private areas. Once again I think this is an "easier" update to do. I also use my companion in combat, so I think it would be awesome once in a while instead of saying "let me heal you" to "honey, are you ok? this should help." It would just immerse the story that much more.

I think all companion "cutscenes" should be replayable. I haven't finished the romance with Elara on my trooper yet as I'm not done with chapter 2, but I wish I could replay the romance dialog between my Consular and Nadia. Not redo, as in change my choices - but just watch it again, like a 2 minute sappy soap opera scene.

I love the romance, but I also love the romance in fantasy based stories in general (as long as it's not ALL romance).

I hope for a daily/weekly type emotional interaction with the romantic companion - whether it's an emotional hug or another fade-to-black scene. I also would like to see the romantic interest move up to your quarter's on the ship. Sorry, but Nadia and Elara are going to be in my guy's quarters, at least after marriage - I ain't making them sleep in the medical bay.

Also - for the love of all that is RPG-holy, please let us switch to a non-combat appearance when in safe zones / cantinas / cities. It's strange to be having a romantic conversation with Elara while wearing 150 pounds of armor on both of us - or, for that matter, to be running through the Senate Tower on Coruscant with a 150 pound minigun on my back. Those be times for dress outfits and murder pistols.

Man, I'm loling inside at the thought of a spec ops Major testifying before our U.S. Congress geared out for a warzone. Imagine multiple rifles on his back with ammo belts and survival gear. I think he'd be a bit intimidating.
