This is what I do. It's actually much more satisfying than some of the romance writing can be. My twi'lek inq loves a certain morose monster and simply switching the tone of their banter in my head actually enhances the existing writing vastly and I feel like it's a very rewarding relationship even though he's never going to write her a sappy love letter.
A lot of the companions can work this way, with a few exceptions. Zenith was almost impossible to head canon, for example. Guy has the humor of Master Kaden.

So, I just did Profit and Plunder, where Vette is reintroduced, and I can report that my (female SIN) did not have the option to Flirt with Vette.

Making each companion more unique would make for a more compelling and "realistic" world (right, because throwing lightning and waving lightsabers is realistic).
Then the question becomes one of companion placement. Do the devs go back and make 1 particular companion of the 5 original story companions bi, and if so, which one, and even if the developers did that, would that companion be the one that everyone wants to romance (a resounding no, because everyone has different ideas of which companions to romance).

Better to convert all gender-programmed flirt options / romances to be generic so the question is solved once and for all for everyone. The only non-romanceable companions left would be Yuun, Blizz, the droids, Scorpio (never call her a droid), Gus, and a particularly passionless Sith, and people would argue the point on those, too.

I understand that George Lucas refused to include LGBT stuff in his stories,and only when he sold Disney the rights (at the RHC) did that get allowed into Star Wars.
They would have to re-script, and re-voice all of the original companions for that, and that is financially and time-wise probably a non-starter.

Yes, but the idea is that bi/homosexual get a chunk of representation in the media/entertainment, since devs have control over character's traits, including sexuality. Bi may be the best option time-cost wise, because most assets in development can be applied to the players with all these sexual preferences.
