With Tharan? Well, he's rather full of himself and the unknowing comic relief character of the Consular storyline, so the whole thing was probably in his head anyway (at least, that's how I read it).

As for Nadia? Yeah, keep your replies focused on the Jedi code and the pure LS options and it'll put her in the friend zone.

The Jedi Consular is just too sexy and awesome for their own good. Companions can't resist them (Qyzen loves you, Jedi Consular, and you know it).

That should literally be an option.

I can see the scene in my head now and it's hilarious.

Yeah, apparently there are a couple places where "being polite" is code for "take me you stud/ette." Blech, ewww, and what the hell. There are also occasions (Corso) where a kinda vague "not right now" means "I will never love you! Never! Never! Never!"

Man, I hope they fix this stuff.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Ok, now I know why people are so afraid of the same-gender options if bugs like these exist. So many levels of uncomfortableness and trigger-y-ness.

I went out of my way to avoid anything like that, so it came as a huge surprise. I sat there blinking at the screen for a good five minutes spluttering about it to my partner, before putting in a ticket. It has to have been a bug, as far as I'm concerned. The GM was pretty unhelpful, I have to say. Now I can't talk to Tharan without getting that conversation, which I shouldn't be having anyway.

I really don't think this was intended.
I found the same thing, and decided to just play along on the basis that, while Theran is clearly crazy as I never had any form of liason with him, he does know how to blow up my hyperdrive.

That's probably one of the reasons for the fear of same-gender options. These bugs just create some truely awful situations. I love Jorgan, but apparently there is a hidden flirt that can start that romance, and there's at least one conversation where there's no option out of a ftb. Besides the shudder-worthy awfulness of that, it completely breaks the story as well - Jorgan is entirely a 'stop when you say' guy. So it's bad bad on both a personal and a storytelling level.

That's a bug I really hope they fix :/

Has this ever been addressed before?

(Also, "force me gay, oh noes!" is still a bit silly, but when your character is forced into a very unwilling fade-to-black for all persons involved situation anyway? Eurgh.)

A thread was posted last April specifically dealing with Jorgan:

http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...4&postcount=22

Official BW response? It is a bug if you got into a romance without hitting [Flirt], but the total inability to exit a romance once it has started or even avoid a ftb is "working as intended."

I haven't heard updates since then, but I also haven't been comprehensively tracking BW activity, so if anybody else knows anything, go ahead and chime in.

(Incidentally, Elara Dorne also has a scene where you cannot avoid a ftb, but I believe you do have to actually hit [Flirt] to start her romance line. Hey, consent pre-kiss means consent alll the way, right?)

This does just get worse and worse. I think I may hold off from rolling a Trooper any time soon - don't want to get stuck in the unwilling fade-to-black for all persons involved situation.
