Companion Affection - what is it good for?

I assume you need it for the romance plots. Does it give any tangible benefits? Should I be saving gifts to give to a particular companion (ie. not wasting them on a companion that I don't plan on playing a lot with?)

Good question. I'd love to know this as well.

Higher affection apparently reduces the time your companion takes to craft and do the crafting quests. It may have other benefits as well.

High affection can open up bonus companion quests, and I believe make them more efficient at crafting.
