If there really is no option to keep it professional I'm just going to not do the Mako personal story. Stupid as a solution as that is.

I mean I'm not but....what if the Male Bounty Hunter just "wasn't interested" if you know what I mean.
There's supposed to be a way to not romance her and set her up with Torian but for some reason when I did it I never seemed to get that option. I've seen other people do it though so it definitely is usually an option. I don't know what happened with my play-through of her missions but I guess it glitched for me or I did something wrong without realizing it.

'It makes sense story wise'

If you took LSD before forming your opinion of what's cohesive, sure.

I actually did follow that quest chain (female BH) a while back but I only got Torian's affection to level 2 or so (with gifts) so I don;t know if it goes further than that, but when I came back after 4.0 to finish the companion stories before doing the expansion, suddenly Torian is in love with my character and I don't have the option to not be in a relationship with him.

I had the exact same thing happen with Torian. I suddenly found my BH all lovey-dovey and huggy with him, going doe-eyed whenever they started talking and yet never once flirted or suggested she was into him, then I get a marriage proposal.
In fact, I found this with every character of mine (I only came back to the game relatively recently, and only maxed affection on characters I liked, rather than romance ones), and I'm guessing it's an issue with the affection ratings no longer defining how they actually feel about you.
I'm guessing they won't go back and re-record dialogue, but hopefully they can add in something like they've done with the Chapter IX/X break with non VR'd dialogue where you can talk to your companions and specify how you feel so you don't look like a complete hypocrite.
Honestly, more of the romance options should have a very early way out of actual romance if you're not interested in realtionships/marriage. My IA ended up somehow in a deep relationship with Vector, my Jedi Knight acting as though she's conflicted about a relationship I never instigated, and my Consular in a similar position.

What makes it worse is the dialogue for ending a relationship (or trying to) tends to be really brutal and in many cases really not what my character would say, especially as in almost every case, I didn't persue a relationship anyway. My light-sided Sth Warrior felt like she was going to kill him when she tried to get out of a romance with her (forced) LI.

I've had a similar problem. I started doing Andronikos Revel companion quests (a NPC that I never really raised the affection because I already had it maxed out on my Assassin) today on my female Sorcerer and suddenly my character was in a relationship with him. My Sorcerer kept turning him down , but the game didn't acknowledge it. In the end it didn't even matter because once I started KOTFE , I ran into that bug where the game doesn't recognize your old romances.

I know this is a very old thread I'm reviving, but was looking to see if anyone else wasn't happy about basically being forced in a relationship with Mako. I recently returned to TOR after a long absence and started the BH from the beginning (I have one on Taris but wanted to start again).

I didn't pick any of the flirt options and actually think Torian is a better fit for Mako. She's like my BH's kid sister and the girl 'crush' on my BH seems fitting, but not an all-out romance. And now all of a sudden they're married. Kinda ruined a otherwise fantastic story, right up there with the IA story. It's not like my BH is at all dark side (he's Light IV), he's a business, I'm not an assassin, and a 'where's the money' kinda guy and a shipboard romance isn't something he'd go for.

I heard Lana comes along and that, from what I understand she is a better option.

Sounds like the ideal wife!
