He has ten seconds of remorse from 0:27 to 0:37. That's it, tragic backstory done, let's talk about you, Captain. To paraphrase what would've happened if I had gotten to say what I wanted to say:

Corso is a creep. A stalker you can't take out a restraining order on, and whom you can't kill.
No, I was more along the lines of how sadistic some women can be regardless of a fictional character or not. Flirting just to tease, leading a person on, then getting angry at the person for making advances.

Corso most definitely isn't the perfect character, but most of the males in the game aren't when you play the way you do.
Its all the force's fault.

Corso is my sidekick..or more specifically that little monkey you dress up in a tux and sit in a corner to look interesting but in reality doesn't really do anything.

You definitely have your people mixed up.

I don't tease the LI toons of my characters.

It is true, however, that every LI toon for a female player that I've ever encountered is repulsive on some level: cowtipper, catboy, sleazebag holoaddict for the republic side that I've seen so far; borged out bug, skeevy pirate, effeminate betrayer, bieber fett on the empire side.

The one you're missing Republic side is the scumbag insincere player. At some point somebody will have to explain to me

I wasn't even trying to mistreat Corso, and for a long time I still did like his company, which just made his meltdown suck even more. Really, man? Can we not just say, once and for all, "Stop hitting on me," and then either part ways or agree to treat each other decently?

Seems to be a problem with all the LIs, once you start their romance it's practically impossible to stop. You can yell "Stay away from me and keep your hands off!" all you want, but you're still with them. O.o You'd think BioWare would have given some type of romantic escape clause (like you get in Dragon Age Origins, at any time you could break it off with whoever you were romancing), instead of saying "Hey, you flirted with them, now you're stuck with them FOREVA!" Yeah... no thanks.

Thanks for the info, I'll probably romance him later on, I'll see how Quinn turns out.

Just want to say, it goes both ways. People can be jerks regardless of gender. I consider myself a "nice girl" and have been treated badly by men in the past, but that doesn't make me hate men. I personally love Corso because he is a southern gentlemen with a protective type personality, but that's what I like. I expect men to be nice and curtious, though I suppose that's not what everyone wants. Just saying that there are plenty of nice girls like myself that appreciate nice guys.

When it comes down to it, it's a fictional romance and should be fun for whoever is playing the game. Not everyone role plays as well as others, like I cant even pick the flirt choices with anyone other then my Corso because it makes me feel bad, just like it would in RL. So if hating on poor Corso is your thing then hey, go for it, but that's not everyone's style so generalizations aren't exactly fair.

Quinn is something special. I've played SW start to finish. I would say a relationship with him goes very slow, but it goes very slow for a guy who starts out day 1 swearing himself to you and your cause, to follow where you lead, to hold any line you choose, to offer everything he is and has in your name - not for profit, not because he has no other place to go, but because he believes in you.

You know, once you get past that lil' detail the relationship goes slow. I had more fun backing off when he got actively nervous, and passing over [Flirt]s to keep him comfortable at my side (he'll approach when he's ready), than I had with any other romance in the game.

That sounds awesome. Slow is good, I rushed it with Corso, his affection was 10000 at level 35. I haven't got Quinn yet, I get him in the 20s right? Gonna take it slow with him seems like it will be a bit more enjoyable that way.

Explaining as best I can...

I find

effeminate because:

1. He's just a little too good looking (which I find creepy in bugborgboy as well).
2. His accent is just a little too refined.
3. His stance and pose remind me a little too much of a Mako reskin.
4. His general "fussiness" strikes me, rightly or wrongly, as feminine rather than masculine.


Re: Corso

It's funny. On one of my smugglers (I've played a few), I tried to run the Corso romance, and stopped in amused disgust when he

At that point, I declared that ship to have sailed, and proceeded to shoot him down at every turn.

Have you seen "Sparkles" too? I mean really... all it is is a sex toy with a scope on it... look at it. Really... look at it.

Corso has it bad for Femsmug.
