Quoted for Truth.

...I mean, if SWTOR were a game with a lot of resources, that was bringing lots of requested features to the game, and fixing bugs, and felt polished and thriving... I'd still be giving this decision a lot of side-eye. I'd still think it was a bad call, but I wouldn't feel quite so... betrayed... by the choice. There are 1001 better ways to spend money on SWTOR.

I think I may know how this would go...
The *Morning After The Commander and Arcann walk out together from the commanders room hearing the ever present background sounds of people working, machinery whirring and computers computing. As the Pair, turn around the corner into the War Room everybody looks and one by one stops what they're doing. The Commander and Arcann slow their pace to standing as they notice *Everybody is looking at them.
From the Side Tora with a smirk and sounding oddly like Beavis says "They were shagging, huh huh huh", Koth without moving says "Tora, go fix........Something. At this Lana hurriedly walks out of the room muttering "I think I'm gonna be sick". The Commander's eyes scan the room noticing even Jollo has stopped "Electro Sweeping" and is looking, even though supposedly he cant see. The pair turn to see T7 is also staring and a low descending tone "EEeeeuu.........." even the light in his viewer goes dim. For what feels like an eternity is almost seems like one can actually hear a Heart Beat. Nobody moves. A loud *Swish is heard as a blast door opens and C2 shuffles in holding a small pillow high in the air saying "I have an Improved cushion if anybody,.. wants....... Have I missed something?

He does not deserve it. He ordered planets to be bombed and his own Knights to kill each other. He had no redemption whatsoever, unless you count the whole "got beaten up by PC and brainwashed by Voss" and I certanly don't. He got no punishment whatsoever, unless you count losing the throne, which is nowhere near enought. He doesn't deserve Oulander, hell, he doesnt deserve freedom or being alive, much less having a romance with anyone. And I have serious trouble seeing Outlander falling for Arcann, considering their history.

So yea, sorry, all the Arcann fangirls, but this is beyond stupid. And yet here we are, Bioware wasting what little they have on this thing.
I agree 100% on all your points. However, I still "support" it because it gives me hope that other kill option characters/companions can have a future.

That is perhaps the one and only potentially redeeming factor about this atrocious romance--the hope it may mean the curtains haven't closed for other 'could be dead' characters.

I would like to believe that but after reading Keith's post I am not so sure. He needs to realize that no everyone likes Arcann but yet he states that it is everyone's favorite. Not in my circle of influence. They did that before saying everyone hated Koth and that wasn't true either. I really get tired of them saying who is everyone's favorite and who everyone hates. I am fully capable of making my own decisions and don't appreciate that comment.

It's a figure of speech. i wouldn't read too much into it. But then again, this is the SWTOR forums where a typo can turn into a 65 page rage thread.

Pure hyperbole, I suspect. Thoughtless and inaccurate to be sure, and ignorantly bleated in a desire to make everything sound exciting. If, at this point, they truly believe everyone loves Arcann then there's literally no hope left for this game at all and I, perhaps naively, hope they're not actually that dumb.

I made a point to let him know I disagree. I don't expect them to revert their decision at this point, nor am I asking them to, but at the very least I can voice my opinion and hope it registers somewhere.

The only thing good I can see about the Arcann romance is that it is guaranteed to be as shallow, brief, and disappointing as every other interaction with anyone except Lana and Theron have been in the past year.

Or maybe they've gone full on insane and are letting a writer fulfill their dream of an alternate-history fantasy romance about how Hitler really didn't suicide himself but was rehabilitated by a mousy, limp, female protagonist who smelled so good that he tried not to murder her and bathe in her blood and somehow confused that blood lust with emotional love and now she punishes him for all his past sins by smacking his booty with a horse whip and makes him call her daddy every night while she chants the 400 million names of everyone he's killed. IM SORRY DADDY, IM SO SORRY PLEASE LOVE ME PLEASE.

That's... paints quite a vivid and horrifying picture but well done, 10/10.

That's the History Channel's new show isn't it? Finding Ancient Hitler Aliens: Forged in Stupid.
