Am I to understand that this is not an option at all? Is this going to be implemented anytime soon? I'm curious because you can't say that it's because this game is PG-13, you're cutting peoples heads off in some of the quests for crying out loud.

I heard a rumor that they WERE considering this but i'd like someone to give a link before I go saying this or looking forward to it.

They said they would put it in later, and it will be soon, I guess as in one of the first things they'll put in. I don't think it's in already.

More or less exactly what poster above said, except that same sex option will be a new character, not just new dialogue for already introduced characters.

Hi Everyone,

As Satedbuffalo's link shows, Stephen Reid made an official post on the same sex romance question in the pre-launch forums:

Same gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature. Because The Old Republic is an MMO, the game will live on through content expansions which allow us to include content and features that could not be included at launch, including the addition of more companion characters who will have additional romance options.
Hope this helps!

That just tells us what we already knew. What I have been looking for is a time frame as to WHEN they might be in. Will it be a month or two or like a year? And if it is going to be new companions does that mean I have no hope of romancing Nadia Grell unless I reroll Male?

Great, so I've been spending all this time flirting with Corso for nothing?

I can see this not happening before a proper expansion is launched.

So do we have to wait for the expansion for this then? If you read it carefully. It sounds like we gotta wait for the expansion in order to get this and other features. Not telling how long that will be.

Just so long as we're notified when it happens....

I'm waiting to roll my preferred "main" until this feature is implemented.
