Same, even now I am still surprised by it LOL. Honestly I would like them to focus on building on the current romances they already have rather than adding a bunch of new ones.

On a side note just for fun, one thing I think would be cool, not really a request, but it would be cool if you could start romances with the love interests from other classes...So like a sith assassin romancing torian the mandalorian dude, or something like that.
MORE ARCANN PLS

I feel like it has to be a joke...did romancing Khem Val break up any other romance, I wonder?

I'm a little surprised that they didn't add that with the companions who returned during KOTFE. It would have been an opportunity for those four (Vette, Torian, Aric, Kaliyo) to become available to other classes.

On the other hand you really don't have the time to get to know them the way you do in the class stories, so maybe a romance option would have been too abrupt. I'm not a fan of the way they added the very quick "wait, I actually love you!" 'romances' with Nadia, Jaesa and some of the others; if there's to be a romance I'd like it to have some build up and some substance other than a brief two minute cut scene that leads nowhere.

I'd also like them to concentrate on what they have instead of adding new romances. Everyone needs more LI screen time. On the other hand we have a huge deficit in F/F romance options in the game so it would be nice to have at least one or two more. All of my toons have to romance the same companion, and while I just adore her, it would be nice if a few of them could have a different wife, LOL.

I'm not sure that Qyzen would be into it. I'm replaying my Consular's story and I got to a conversation with him where she has a chance to ask him about settling down once things calm down, to have a family and such. He tells her that the only thing he is interested in is hunting.

True but that was in context to having children or "hatchlings" as he calls them. He never said anything about objecting to having a partner.

Besides he might have changed his mind years later after the Eternal Empire conflict, Khem Val did after all.

Yeah it appears to be a serious relationship. I tried it on one of my Inquisitor toons and it caused a breakup with my Inquisitor and Theron lol.

Would Qyzen fertilize the egg before or after it is laid?

I'm not AGAINST it, per se, but I would find it odd. I find the Khem Val romance odd, too, if you're wondering. But maybe that's why Bioware would add something like this. Because it's odd.

I do see some questions Bioware would have to overcome:

1) Qyzen may grow to love the Consular, but never as much as he loves the Scorekeeper and the Hunt. I'm not sure a humanoid species needing to be truly loved would want to settle for third place in her partner's heart. Or would male Consulars be able to romance Qyzen also, because as far as I can tell, Khem 'swing both ways,' too.

2) Qyzen views the Consular as the Herald of the Scorekeeper. Would that make romancing the Consular, some kind of heresy? A severe affront to the Trandoshan goddess? Or no? If you're going to say no, don't just say it because you want to see this happen so badly.

3) Whether or not Qyzen would ever like to have children, would the Consular? Are children even possible between a reptilian and a mammalian species? I know it happened in V, the old 1980's miniseries and the spinoff series, so this isn't as big a hurdle.

Maybe these points are not insurmountable, but Bioware would need to address them.

... or would they, given that they just stuck the Khem Val romance in there without any "but what about?" 's.

You make good points, it certainly would be a complicated relationship without these questions answered.

For 1, I'd say Qyzen definitely values the Scorekeeper and Hunting most of all due to his Trandoshan beliefs but I certainly see no reason for why he couldn't just as equally value the Consular as his mate as long as the Consular continued the 'Hunt' together by journeying and killing enemies which is what they do throughout the vanilla story. Especially since the Consular helps him regain his points after he got captured on Tython. But then again, it's just speculation.
As for male Consulars, I have no idea. Every new romance so far has allowed same-gender relationships so I guess they would.

For 2, it's a debatable question. On one hand, it could indeed be seen as heresy but on the other hand it could be seen as an honour to Qyzen that the Herald themselves had picked Qyzen, of all Trandoshans, to be their worldly partner. It would need further explaining in the lore.

And for 3, children has never really been mentioned by the Consular as far as I'm aware. Even when romancing a genetically compatible LI such as Felix, Theron or Lana, having children is never mentioned so I guess it's just up for speculation again.

I'm sure these questions could be answered if the lore was expanded on but we only have speculation. Even with Khem Val's romance it was kind of a quick lore explanation with him needing to "perform rituals to Mistress Death" in order to give his feelings over to the Inquisitor.

Personally, I enjoyed Khem's romance. I've always felt he and the Inquisitor develop a deep and meaningful relationship and having them formalize it made perfect sense. I don't get the same feeling of attachment from Qyzen and the Consular though.

I know I got choked up with emotion every time Khem said he wanted to kill my character. It was so romantic! Every time Khem threatened my SI, I just knew he really meant he loved her. It was so deep and meaningful!

I'm just messing with you. Seriously though, towards the end of the SI story, Khem really did seem to respect them whereas Qyzen seems more like he reveres the JC. Respect is there but it's buried in the view that the JC is the Herald of the Scorekeeper.

Besides, you know what Trandoshans give to their mates? Wookiee pelts. Do you really want Qyzen to give you a Wookiee pelt?
