*** is the point with all the half-naked gear?

Each time I see a thread complaining about it I get the urge to roll a character in the slave dancer outfit. If you don't like it, you don't have to wear it.

Well, you right about that. I don't need to use the gear. Agree
Complain sure I can complain about something in the game as long as I pay for it.
I will join the US army the day bikini is the main gear for all female solider.. hehe

The problem only arises(for me), when a larger portion of the playerbase runs around in those outfits. It tends to stretch my immersion when troopers who have to expect getting hit on the battlefield(thus the heavy armor) run around in bikinis.
I realize it's not up to me what others want to wear, but yeah it bugs me sometimes.

And you see nothing antagonistic about that urge? When I go to the beach, I expect to see bikinis. When I go to the mall or a restaurant, I expect to see shirts and shoes. If I were to go to a battlefield, the last thing I'd expect to see some shoeless chick in her underwear...it's about immersion and objects in our environment can easily break that immersion.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

Exactly. And if I were to go to a galaxy far far away, a long time ago I would expect....

It's a game. Little cartoon figured with space magic. How anyone can play an MMO like SWTOR and then argue realism is beyond me.

This right here is exactly what is the whole conclusion on this subject. Skimpy outfits don't belong on a battlefield. A person running around with half a shirt, half leg pants or no pants fighting an enemy that has double layer heavy armor on? Yah, isn't quite "immersive". I don't like the skimpy outfits.

Also, "If you don't like it, you dont have to buy it" is not the issue here. The issue here is exactly what TUXs said. Of course people know they don't have to buy it if they don't like it. It's having to look at that type of "armor" in the game that just doesn't belong in those environments. That is what people don't agree with.

So, tell me. When is the last time you saw our soldiers wear bikinis and swimsuits on the battlefield?

Because Star Wars is based on SCIENCE! OUR SCIENCE!!! Midichlorians are little parasitic infections that allow people to control things like the "Force"...therefor, bikini's on the battlefield are nonsensical scientifically!

It is just stupid.
If you have ideas you would like the best thing I can say is post here like I did but either give them pictures or a good description. Whether it helps or not is another story.
