Yep. That's the "bioware storytelling" we were promised.
I have no doubt that the romances returns are not going to be in huge depth, probably something only along the lines of getting the occasional email or the odd line during conversations with them or even just maybe one scripted cutscene after their return saying how happy they are to see you again etc...
How PvP balance is achieved - Bioware please nerf paper its OP, scissors are fine as they are.

Despite how little that might be, we're still going to miss out on it :/

I have half a cargo bay full of useless courting gifts waiting for my romances to be re-activated.

PLEASE fix this already!

Can I just say that I'm absolutely disguisted by the lack of communication from the devs about this?

Sadly this is Bioware Standard Operating Procedure.

Theyve been ignoring Vector Hylus and Lord Scourge wearing bras for over four years now. (They are male, and dont have the moobs necessary to need bras )

I'm more concerned that their voices are still messed up. I'm reluctant to use them until it is fixed because it is so jarring. No response on that issue either.

Hey everyone,

We have seen quite a few reports about the Romance system being broken, and I wanted to clarify a few things. A number of the issues being reported are not, in fact, bugged.

The big one is Iresso. While Iresso is not alone in not acknowledging your romance, he has become the name surrounding the whole situation. In this case, there is a bug Ė the romance variables for some of the pre-KOTFE companions are being improperly assessed, leading to the appearance that they arenít romanced even if they are. This fix is scheduled for 4.1 but is not finalized yet. What should have occurred is that when you completed Chapter I of Fallen Empire, you would receive a mail from your romance. We believe that this issue is also affecting pre-KOTFE content as well; please let us know once the fix is live if you notice any issues. It is worth pointing out that this change is not retroactive: if you have already started Fallen Empire, you will not receive the letter.

I have also seen mention of not being able to romance one of the new characters (Lana, Theron, Koth) being a bug. As far as we can tell, this is not bugged at this time. In order to romance these characters, you must consistently choose flirt options with them throughout KOTFE (having a relationship with Theron or Lana back in Shadow of Revan also contributes to their romances, but is not required) and you must choose a particular option in Chapter IX to pursue a full romance with one of them. If anyone finds that this is not the case for their character, definitely let us know!

As for Courting gifts, we are aware that they are only able to be consumed by Nico Okarr. At first we thought he was just greedy, but we found out itís because of the change from Affection to Influence, and the Courting Gifts not making the appropriate swap. This is also scheduled for Game Update 4.1.

Best,

Tait
