I think it's about time that you can make the Droid gain affection since it will affect his ability to heal (which I never use him for anyways) but more importantly, it will fasten his crafting/mission-fetching time significantly.

Check out http://www.dulfy.net

There's a pretty nifty chart that says that once your companions all have 10,000/10,000 affection, crafting and mission-fetching time is reduced by 17%. Now say you have a companion that has a +5 in Biochem and you also have 10k/10k affection, you'd have a total of 22% decrease crafting/mission-fetching time. Very useful for crafting those annoying blue items (especially if Biochem for those blue rakata stims).

If you get to 10,000 / 10,000 he shows you where the mute button is.

The price of droid bobbles will sky-rocket.

There's the answer then!

Well, I guess they could include affection for the droid or not have his crafting be impacted by affection. I just can't seriously think of having him with me for extended periods of time while trying to grow his affection for me... shutters....

Priority of changes to the game, whether bug fixes or new features, are determined by a combination of need, ease of implementation, number of users affected, and potential for unintended consequences. This is a change that ranks low in terms of need, but is easy to implement, affects all users, and has little potential for unintended consequence.

Might pay real dollars for that! As a matter of fact, mark my words, this is the next "gold farmer" service they will be offering...

Will grow companion affection to 10K for 3 easy payments of $19.99 (ship droid - $25x3 - even gold farmers have ears)

I'd rather replace him with one of those Gree droids, then I would reach green parallel within my ship.
