It is worth pointing out that this change is not retroactive: if you have already started Fallen Empire, you will not receive the letter.
This message alone makes me NOT want to play KOTFE !

I really fear now that EVERYTHING I had been working on interms of romances since 2013 will be ... void
at that point. 2 years for nothing.

( And no, I haven't even begun KOTFE right now - because of oither reasons, though ... )

Thank you for the response Tait. I only wish it had come sooner. It's good to know that the devs are aware of this bug and even have a fixed planned for the near future!

I reached out to Tait and Charles Bboyd on Twitter. Charles responded saying our companions will acknowledge past romances in future content! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY3XiM7oGj0

Thanks, Swedguy. So that means even if we didn't get the mail, the romance *isn't* broken? Or there will be acknowledgement on past romances in general?

There will be acknowledgement on past romances except for the letter.

Me: When the bug is fixed, will affected characters have their companions ackowledge the past romance later in kotfe?
Charles: New content featuring romanced companions should include those companions acknowledging their romances.

Wooohooo! Thank you. Not so terrified to run through KOTFE with my first few characters then if that's the case.

It isn't stated who you flirt with, and in every other wheel where it doesn't say, you flirt with the person visible on the GDMH(1) screen. There's a wheel on Rishi where you can flirt with either Theron or Lana:
1. [Flirt] Theron, sexytalk
2. [Flirt] Lana, sexytalk
3. Something bland.

So here it's clear who get which flirt. In the Chapter IX cantina case, it isn't clear. Perhaps this would have been more clear:
1. [Talk to one of them.]
2. [Flirt] [Flirt with one of them.]

Now it is unambiguously clear that the flirt happens with whomever you choose.

(1) Initialism for "deity-cursed matrilocally incestuous", only more crudely expressed.
My apologies. I thought that I saw somewhere that it was presented this way:

1. [Talk to one of them.]
2. [Flirt] [Flirt with one of them.]

After watching a video of the cantina scene on YouTube, I realize that I was wrong. I still don't understand though why I have only gotten the first choice from above (Talk to one of them) on every character despite the fact that I have flirted with Lana at every single opportunity. I thought maybe it was because I made a decision that Lana didn't like. However, my friend always got the romance option regardless of the choices that he made in the story.

So what do I do now?

You may have misread one of my suggestions for how it should be, because this isn't the first time I've suggested making the text reflect the actions, as you typed above.

As for what you do now, unfortunately all you can do is hope they'll give us a break on this one, and that they'll perhaps even admit that they were wrong to structure it the way they did.

I strongly advise you not to hold your breath while waiting for them to do either of those things, though...
