Like reported in many other threads, I think BW has bigger fish to fry. Also, they have to weigh the marketing advantage of implementing such content. They have to weigh the difference in revenue (yes, it is about the money) by adding the idea. As hard as it is to believe, there are gamers out there that strongly disagree and opposed to the concept and will actually leave the game because of the issue. So, the question is will they lose more subscribers by adding or not adding the content. Right now, I think there are far more issues that need be addressed to keep subscribers other than this topic. As for most gamers, I think they don't care one way or the other.

The same sex content in the other Bioware/Ea games didn't have an adverse effect on their sales, nor did the content in Skyrim (such as it is), the Sims, it won't here either.

At the end of the day, SGRAs are a staple of Bioware Games, unfortunately it seems Bioware Austin didn't get that memo.

Still, the content is coming, the annoying thing now is the wait and lack of info as to when and how.

As noted above, there is already a thread on this subject. Also, the BioWare staff has already stated that SGRA's will be implemented into the game at a later date. It is to be a Post-Launch feature. When it will be added to the game is still in debate, as there are many more urgent features that were to be added, updated and fixed. Such as the more recent patches with the Legacy System, Group Finder and such. I expect we may see it relatively soon now that some of the Bigger things are out of the way. They may still need touching up, but we have them now and a lot of people are happy.

Currently they are working fervently on new Fashpoints, Warzones and Operations for us to enjoy in the next patch, so I expect that SGRA's will be held off for a little longer. However I do believe we may see them before the end of this year. Right now we can only hope.

Also, if you want a Twi'lek warrior, you can get it via the Legacy system. you can either;

A: Level up a Twi'lek character up to lv50 to unlock the species for all classes
or
B: Earn your legacy and save 1.5million credits and pay to unlock the Species for all classes.

Statement: SGRA's - I support them. Do you have a problem with that, Meatbag?

This is ridiculous.
Back in the day of Mario and sonic, there was no such thing as in-game romance. Romance needs to be taken out of games, because apparently some people only play for that part of the game, and others are to immature to handle it.

Incorrect.

If your assumption was valid, we'd all be off playing dating sims, we are not, we do however enjoy the romantic options that have been part of the BioWare storytelling mechanic since they began making these games. They are there for a reason, to get you emotionally invested in the characters and just as importantly, the story, going on in the game, without that investment, the game would be a failure(In some PoVs.), we want to partake in this investing, but can only do so in a heterosexual manner, something simply not the same.

Let me give you some perspective: I will make the rather large hypothetical scenario that you are a straight male and you want to partake in the romance options of this game, you wish to play a male, naturally, and in this hypothetical scenario the only romantic options are other males, because this game only has Same Sex Romances.

You are faced with three solutions:
You decide not to partake in this content, despite wanting to.
You re-roll as a female, to partake in Lesbian romances, despite wanting to play a male.
You ask for Opposite Sex Romances to be implemented at some point.

Reverse everything to how reality is, we face this same conundrum.
