Well, considering Bioware did establish the possibility with ME3 and Jacob's moving on, I could see the same possibility happening here. To be honest, I'd find it more workable for the love interest to move on than the PC jumping to a new love interest considering to the old love interest it's been five years apart but to the PC it's barely a handful of months. Factor in how the PC reacted to the love interest with approve/disapprove, that would give some variety to playthroughs.

Only real downside I'd see for me at least would be I'd be more busy reading the forums outrage than actually playing the game because we all know how seriously some here take the love interests.

At least a few should still know/believe you're alive (Nadia, Kira, Jaesa and Ashara) being they're force users. Two of them (Kira and Nadia) are less likely to move on, since they'd still likely be holding on to the Jedi idealism to a degree.

There's also Lana, who's held on for those years, so there's reason to believe others would as well and Lana may or may not have been a LI.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Lana and Theron had the edge of being in Intelligence and having the contacts to know there was something more going on after Marr's ship went down, while depending if you ordered your team to stand it's ground or to flee to warn others might not have that same degree of 'something ain't right' that Lana and Theron did. As far as the Force users, until I saw the love interest emails, I would have sworn that they'd all be aware that the Jedi/Sith were still alive even if they were frozen in carbonite since the Jedi/Sith aren't dead, especially Nadia who even has a moment of shared consciousness with the Consular. Granted, any explanation could be handwaved as some Force manipulation from Valkoryon or Vaylin, but then again, I don't think it's been mentioned anywhere about sensing a Force user who's frozen in carbonite.

After being freed from the carbonite, I was expecting at least the Force user love interests to either make an appearance or at least be sending an email acknowledging they were sensing the Sith/Jedi again. Another thing that is definitely lacking is the PCs having an option to at least try to email their love interests once they've established base on Odessen. Granted it could come back as undeliverable, or be thought as some sort of ruse, but that could at least be something to lead in to the love interest's return.

That we get nothing beyond that one email leaves us with wondering what exactly is going on with the companions we haven't been reunited with. Are they dead, did they move on, or something else altogether? With all we have being speculation, we're all leaning towards thinking the worst while hoping for anything but that.
