Does anyone know if we have to accept all the companions? there is one I would rather not have

I've been shot at with lasers, lost limbs to light-sabers, been blown-up and crapped out of nearly every beast in the galaxy. George Lucas has made my life a living hell.

If you don't like a companion then you can just leave them on your ship to do grunt work, and you don't even really need to interact with them. You do get all so that each one can fill the role they are able to do, IE healer, dps, tank and so forth.

I know all that, that's not what I asked.

Yes at this point you have to accept them all.
If you ask me a question I will answer it based on my thoughts, feelings and experience. If you want someone to regurgitate your words back to you and nod in agreement. You had better ask someone else. -Shaz

Can't get rid of any companions either. It's just for the sake of balance, so you won't regret it later.

They are all fairly integral to the story, so no, you're stuck with them. Though you may not hate them so much later in the game, i think their alignment will shift if you do things right.

You used to be able to decide whether or not to keep companions. Then all the people cried about how when they picked "Kill XXX" in a dialogue, surprise surprise, it actually killed them.

Thank the whiners for not wanting to bowl without bumpers in the gutters.

Somewhat of a rant, people always cite dumbing down and adding features like omg hyper run speed at lvl 1 because running is too tedious, like the should be added because "I play games to have fun." Ya, well - games also have rules to be fun.

I think the three-point line in basketball should only be 3 feet from the basket and the baskets themselves should only be 10 feet apart because it's too tedious to run back and forth on the court. And 10-foot high baskets are biased against short people, lower them to 2 feet please. Just say no to making everything stupid simple!

Yes and rules exist to be amended when they don't work. Unless you're some kind of masochist and you think suffering and rules are inherently fun. Which is fine for you, just don't be surprised if not everyone agrees with you. I mean, you're seriously arguing in favor of tedium? "Only hardcore gamers should go to the DMV!"

Honestly...I think Bioware could have handled it better.

For instance they should have let you select "Kill XXX" and instead of actually killing them, your character "dreams they are killing them" would have added some humor and a perfect chance to let the developer think of funny ways of allowing players to "kill" their companion.

Your companion would of course really not like you after this, I mean would you like somebody who dreams of killing you ( and in theory just stood there with a stupid look on their face while they did it? ) so this would effect your reputation with them and future conversations would make fun of your choice.
