There are so many non-skimpy sets already in the game that I don't see the problem. If anything, you should be happy that they make people pay for skimpy outfits.

You haven't used any facts to support your claims.We have a few variations in colour of the dancer set and 2 versions of the relaxed set. That's not that much, especially considering the amount of other armour sets that have come out that are not skimpy at all.

Let's take the more recent regulator and enforcer packs as an example. It contains the following armor sets:

Carth Onasi
Darth Malak
Genteel Dress
Organa Loyalist
Organa Statesman
Recovered Hero
Relaxed Jumpsuit
Rist Stateman
The Last Handmaiden

How many of these do you consider skimpy? Sure only Relaxed can be considered skimpy at all. The rest is all nicely covering your characters up.

So please, use facts and don't twist what's really out there. As far as I can tell each pack series has maybe one skimpy set and the rest is not.

Isn't misrepresenting the truth against your morals?

Except that I seem to get three pieces of 'Relaxed' stuff to every one I get of another.

Then buy what you do want from the GTN rather than the CM. That's what I do. I have yet to acquire a single piece of skimpy clothing I did not intend to buy.

Your cast-off junk will sell if you price it cheaply enough. All my characters' female companions wear hats like the revelers cap because those hats are so cheap (and I'm going to disable head gear display no matter what it is, so one orange hat/helmet is as good as another).

Of course you're entitled to your opinion. The vast majority of players in these games are still male in this day and age. The fact is that for most guys, there can't be too many scantily clad females. So, you might think there's too much of that type of 'clothing' in the game and there might indeed be more than people will buy, but the playerbase as a whole will likely not tire of (anytime soon) of skimpy clothing for female toons.

If there is no demand, then the number of players wearing the items will decrease regardless of how many are posted on the GTN. It will sort itself out.

However, calling for censorship of a game that is working well within the boundaries set forth by the ESRB is pointless.

There are plenty of E rated games out there to enjoy if the skimpy outfits are offending your conservative sensabilities. This is a fantasy game, after all.

Random packs are random. I bought about 12 packs and I got all kinds of stuff in there. And aside from the top the relaxed suit is not skimpy. The top tends to be the more rare piece. If you have multiple ones of those you can easily sell them and get other stuff. Most of it's cheap to come by on the gtn if you didn't get it from the pack.

My point stands, there are many more armour sets that are not skimpy and the OP's complaint therefore is invalid and franky antisocial as a consequence. Always someone who wants to take choices away from others because they can't help but stare themselves blind on the one set that they have a problem with and completely ignore the rest.

Given how many toons I see running around in the skimpy gear, I think that proves there /is/ a demand for it.

BUT, I pulled this quote out because I agree with it. I would love to see gear that is sleeveless or v-necked.

I agree with the OP in that I would like to see more middle of the road stuff. Seems like every outfit is either completely covering or a dancer recolor. Give us more stuff like how the Aspiring Knight looks on females (at least let us dye it, so we can pretend it's new).

If the OP wasn't right, the gtn wouldn't be choked with 500 credit dancer outfits and covert armor. I'm surprised that asking for more variety elicited such a hostile response. Defensive dancers are defensive, lol.

Just wait until "skinny jeans" arrive for males in game, so tight, you can tell what religion they are.... lol

Without joking, I am somewhere in the middle on this issue.... Part of me does not mind, the other part does not want to see Jedi that resemble the girls at the local strip clubs. It is a game after all....
