You must be new to MMOs.

I've played through most of the Kaliyo romance so far and... it's rocky... but I really appreciate it. It's a clear sign of NPC independence. They no longer rely on the PC for their direction. And for all the issues of "cheating" and whatnot, I can never see my Imp being the type of guy to settle down with a nice woman and have some kids, and he's just been around and with Kaliyo so long that it just makes sense. Besides, it's not like he hasn't slept with every Sith woman they've encountered. XD All he's done differently is been open about it.

Corso is the other one I love so far. He's just so damn adorkable. And he gives me moddable GUNS. You can't get much better than that. You really can't.

That's good news--you get to re-roll a whole new character to get romance options all over again! :P
Yeah, I was so looking forward to having my female imperial agent have a lesbian relationship. I mean come on, how is Kaliyo not at least bi-??

I have romanced Doc, and boy is he entertaining! He is horribly corny and sleazy but I find him hilarious. Lines like:




Though as predicted in the end he...


Just starting with Corso who is the polar opposite but just as fun! Such a sweet naive farmboy and easy to love!

Agreed on Doc. It's pretty evident that the smooth-talking lady-killer braggart act is a defensive pose, and it can be fun to puncture that and see what happens.

I liked Malavai best too at the start, but I think Bioware really really dropped the ball on fixing the story when they took out death as an option.

Your character is married to a guy who tries to kill them, but Bioware doesn't let you divorce him, doesn't even let you get away from him with a restraining order (carbonite freezing) or anything, but forces your SW to continue sleeping in closed quarters with him, while he continues to send personal letters, which become really creepy after someone has tried to kill you. And no I didn't spoiler that, because it's so very screwed up it should have come with big red warning spoilers from the start.

I think Corso is my favorite now, he's sweet, cool with my smuggler being the boss, and I love the blasters. The only thing that gets on my nerves with him is when he always tells enemies 'fight me fair' as if we don't pretty much start most fights out by ambushing, shooting first, and wiping the floor with the poor underpowered foes as it is.

Thanks for the earlier info, I think I'll make a Bounty Hunter next.

Well. He's an honest fella. Just 'cause you're a smuggler doesn't mean his is! XD I don't take the combat shouts too seriously.
