There's no point to discuss new companions at this time.
By that logic it wouldn't make sense to discuss the topic at all, it would only make sense to wait and see.
Ah, yes. "Reapers."

If there was a rating system for this forum, i'd give this a rating of winner. Let's look at the DA2 female options: Isabella the pirate could have remained bi, while Merrill could've been developed a lesbian w/appropriate story to match. Aveline could have been added as the straight only option with the realization that Hawke wants her and if male the romance begins, but if female, it never gets off the ground.

Anyways, back on topic. Having the same-gender romances for the companions that make sense is a good idea and a bad idea. The bad is that some of the companions do not make sense as SGRs to some, like me and Elara Dorne for example, makes no sense for a woman in the military known for never breaking rules and regulations should even be in a romance with her male commanding officer (Trooper). Change the boss to a female, it makes even less sense. The good is that some classes only get the one option so it would have to be that person.
  1. Trooper-Elara is the only female in the squad other than trooper.
  2. Jedi Knight-I only know of Kira the padawan, that would be fun.
  3. Jedi Consular and Sith Inquisitor-Their repective companions, Nadia and Ashara.
Han Solo: Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

We can't discuss what they've confirmed?

I don't see the point of continually pushing the idea that SGRA's should be with new companions instead of existing ones when they've confirmed that they will add them in with some existing companions.

whoa... what does that mean exactly ? Elara sleeping with her male boss is not so bad but Elara sleeping with her female boss is crossing the line ?

With no deadline or anything in sight, why wouldn't people branch into hypotheticals?

We could discuss the hypothetical of it not being included at all then. Posters come into this thread and push that idea from time to time.

It has been confirmed that they will include them though, so I don't see much point in that.

I didn't say that, just that Elara is a by-the-book kind of girl, and sleeping with her commanding officer might be breaking regulations/rules, no matter the gender. that, and I personally can't see her in a romance at all.

I thought Elara was a romance option, though?

She is.

It seems that poster was saying:

Elara romance with male: bad/against regs but makes sense.

Elara romance with female: bad/against regs but doesn't make sense.

At least that's what I got.

Well, technically, they never specifically said "current companions". It is a reasonable inference, but the statements could as easily have applied to companions already designed and/or written whom we have yet to meet. I personally do think the remarks referred to current companions, particularly given the leaks regarding Makeb.

On the other hand, it doesn't hurt to speculate. In some ways it is even helpful to, as we can then make known what we would or would not appreciate in various scenarios.
