After the council meeting, in the ships intercom conversation, I flirted again and she told me she had to resist urges.
For bugged people, there is no second option. I selected the first option and Kira stopped having any quest/dialog progress whatsoever. By your second sentence, you're ahead of the bugged people. Relax.

As stated a few pages back, I'm electing to reroll if the patch notes for the 10th come out and don't include a fix. There is a large part of me that really just wants to stop giving them my money because of how poorly this was handled. But I just can't bring myself to go that far. I have been, at times, bordering on furious that I should have to go through all of this to be able to enjoy the game that I paid for, but I'm just sick of it gnawing at the back of my mind and putting me in a bad mood for weeks straight.

This should have been such a different experience for me. For all of us. It should have been an epic journey in the Star Wars universe, the likes of which we would always remember fondly. I don't know if I'll ever be able to stop feeling cheated of that, but I am ready to move on from it.

This was not okay, BioWare. Just not okay. I don't know if I have much more to say on the subject, but this will probably be my second to last post in this thread (other than, "Thank you for finally doing something," or "That's it, I'm re-rolling,") so I just wanted to get the rest of what I was thinking out there.

Am I upset due to a sense of entitlement to a certain level of experience? Yes, I will fully admit. But at this point, I don't feel that I am acting unjustly entitled. We deserved better than this.
Much respect to you for defining the issue in such a balanced way. I think someone from Bioware should take a clue.

I've given up hope that this will be fixed anytime soon. We're at 156 pages and we have not received any substantial information on their plans to fix it. I'm just going to continue enjoying what I have of my Jedi Knight and hope it gets added in the future so I have something to look forward to after I complete the main story.

They prefer discussing on more important topics, like is magenta saber colour different from purple sabre colour.
Anyway, I don't think this issue will be fixed before at least one month.

It's a hard issue to fix. Just enabling the conversations/quests will mess the relationship between that side story and main story line. One solution would be rolling back all players (acquired levels and gear included) to that point in the story. That would probably result on players uprising due to loss of levels, gear and time spent on that char. Other solution would be making new conversations to match the setting of the story at level 50. Both solutions aren't easy, one due to players' reactions other due to the amount of work needed. I wouldn't like to be in BW's shoes on this one. Still, I hope they come out with the best possible fix for this bug.

It isn't hard to fix. It's patently false that gear is related to variables dictating companion behavior, and highly dubious that level does. You experience the game as a cohesive whole where everything interacts with you equally, but that's not how code is written.

Somewhere in the code for Kira, our DS response triggered a value which looped her into not having normal companion behavior. That switch needs to get unflipped.

The very worst-case scenario would be resetting the class questline to that point, but those values are unrelated to level and gear.

/bump

Don't care about class bosses being too hard for some
Don't care about force push/pull/saber toss
Don't care about hoods up or down (though this is a good idea)
Don't care about the DPS being too weak or needing nerfer


Kira fix!
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no death, there is the Force.
