I don't get it, if it had been for everyone I could understand but as it stands its pretty lame.

Specially given how long the Warrior Spends recruiting Jaesa Willsaam, she doesn't even appear in the cut scene and says nothing at any point in the entire expansion.

On the one hand it feels like BW do not have the budget to do TOR to the previous standard. That it will never be what it was and any hope that it might is pointless. But then to do it for some and not others suggests it could have been done.

I feel so completely ripped off right now. I played my male agent all the way through, completed the class story, and I had no companions in my intro to Rishi. I had the cut scene, that had some strange imperial guy forwarding co-ordinates to the agent, and apologizing for the mistake. Kaliyo was there, but never said one peep. You just see her driving the ship.

that and the fact that normally super jealous companions suddenly are totally ok with you flirting with everything that moves right in front of you?

when they said that romancable companions have something to say on Rishi and Uavin, I thought it was cutscene participation. but its just offhand comments when entering certain zones :/

bah.
Honestly, I never expected anything more than that.

I did expect them to have every single companion providing those comments, just like they did for Makeb.

I was wrong.

Regardless, I feel your pain concerning Temple.

As I mentioned on another thread:

  • Talos Drellik, healer companion for the Inquisitor, offers advice during the Inquisitor class story yet he also goes silent throughout the rest of the expansion.
  • Daran Norris voiced Colonel Darok during the Forged Alliances story arc yet Gault Rennow, another character he voices and a companion for the BH, is also silent.
In other words, they did cut corners in several aspects.

What remains to be seen is if they ALSO chose to cut corners for one of the factions, or if this isn't working as intended. Judging from the Vector screenie above...

In Jaesa's case, it would require several recordings based on:

LS/DS
Romances or Not (Technically, you can romance her at the very, very end of her LS conversation when discussing her having children to pass on her ability)

So, two and two makes four different versions, for just one character's lines.

Not saying it was okay, just saying a possible reason as to why no lines from her.

Look at the bright side: At least they fixed it.

Even if having Rachel Leigh Cook recording two different Jaesas was too much of a trouble for cutscenes, they did have her as LS and DS Jaesa commenting throughout the entirety of Makeb.

As they did every single companion available at the time.

Even the protocol droids, 2V-R8 and C2-N2.

That planet alone had each companion commenting on different stuff, at least on TWENTY OCCASIONS. In addition to DS / LS Jaesa, and HK-51 ALSO having different comments for each faction.

That's more than Yavin 4 and RIshi COMBINED.

One of these days, I'm gonna lock up all that stuff and make a thread about ti, so people get to see how much was lost in that regard, compared to Makeb.

Bioware has been cutting out the interactivness of their in game romances accross the board. Best example is going from Dragon Age Origins and its very detailed and interactive romances, to Dragon Age 2 and its one shot furtive grope in the dark corner that won't be acknowleged for one or two in game years LoL. (I know Fenris had a thing about being touched but geeztwo years bioware? )

Do I even need to go into the infamous Garrus headboop in Mass Effect 2?

Dragon Age Inquisition made it a smidge better where once you establish a romance you can go up to them and ask for a kiss, but aside from very plot specific moments, the romances are very much on the interaction afterthought plate.

I am very unhappy bio went the DA2 route with SoR romances, giving flags that dont fire acknowleding married couples and making it so the companions do as they have for the past two years since they married the protagonist, which is ignore them and pretend the relationship isn't even there just like every other day.

Honestly it doesn't even inspire me to playthrough SoR on my other characters because I don't want my warriors, bhs, and other inqs to be ignore by their husbands like my sin was today by Andronikos when I did her playthrough.

Here's hoping. I still have to run my Lady Agent through it, and I desperately want me some Vector-y goodness.

On another note, Malavai rules. Dude gets too much uncalled hate. IMHO at any rate.
