Would it be possible to get unlocks that would allow us to customize our Protocol Droid . . .give him a new look, different personality, etc.

Challenge accepted.
Not at all. When they say it's tentative, however, you should take it as tentative.

Well in some ways I am in the same boat as you, none of my characters are actually family members, BUT they do not need to be, you can make them allies or even rivals to eachother. So no one is forcing us to make them be blood relatives.

You just called people idiots for believing when they say somthing is coming out but now since you agree with them that its going to be out in April I would be a idiot not to believe them.

So their release dates truth is only based on forum fan boi's belief of it, not somthing Bioware has done. Check.

I hope it gets release next month, but degrading people and lash out with hate comments is just not good for these forums.
“service quality, as perceived by consumers, stems from a comparison of what they feel service firms should offer (i.e., from their expectations) with their perceptions of the performance of firms providing the services. Perceived service quality is therefore viewed as the degree and direction of discrepancy between consumers' perceptions and expectations.”

Following quite a few patches that were broken or just under-tested, they decided to push back the release date and get more feedback on both features and implementation.

This was done as a service to trolls and other forum lowlife, as it makes sure they'll always have something to whine about. If Bioware releases material before its ready, you can whine that they don't test enough. If they hold back material to test it more thoroughly, you can whine they're lying to you about release dates. You should be glad they care enough about your happiness to make sure you have choices.

(PS: It's inevitable that, no matter how long they delay 1.2, when it goes live, there will be bugs, and there will probably be an "emergency patch" within 48 hours of going live to fix particularly egregious crash or exploit bugs. Nothing this complex can be done perfectly within any kind of reasonable timescale (months, as opposed to years). So, you will also have a THIRD gift from BioWare, the chance to write "It's late AND it doesn't work!". Make sure to send them a nice thank-you note. As for me, since I accept that zero bugs is not possible, I'd rather wait an extra month to get the bug count reduced as much as is feasible.)

Why the developers haven't fixed that bug yet!

Where would you start if you were constructing the Skywalker family tree? Let’s start with Anakin. If you ask me, Anakin is a level 50 Sith Warrior anchoring the top of the family tree. He’s married to Padme Amidala and they have two kids, Luke and Leia. Luke and Leia were both strong in the Force, like their father before them. Leia ends up marrying Han Solo, undoubtedly a level 50 Smuggler, and they have three children who all turn out to be Jedi. Luke marries Mara Jade, and they in turn have Ben, who is also a powerful Jedi Knight. Looking at their family tree, it’s clear that the Skywalker legacy produces powerful Force users and great heroes.
This is all well and good, and the Legacy system emulates this well. However. What if I created a Scoundrel named Han Solo, and then wanted a Gunslinger named Landau Calrissian..Oops, guess he has to be Landau Solo.

Why can't this system be created to incorporate assignable Legacy names? That way I could have, for example, a Sith Legacy that's separate from my Jedi Legacy.

Thats the part they left out, and we are left with having to hide legacy name on certain characters in order to RP them properly. All my chars have different surnames, I chose the legacy name that was the surname of my main charcter so I can use it on that, but on all others legacy surname is hidden. They make us have to come up with workarounds, getting used to that notion now with Bioware.

This update sounds awesome, but I have some questions*

1) Will I be able add my companion to my familiy tree if not I would enjoy that. Becouse I know other players have romanced there companion such as Corso or Kaylio.

2) Will there be more companion conversations some time in this update? Later? Never?

3) Will there be new lightsaber colors such as a light blue, dark blue, dark red and or pink?

Thanks so much for the FREE extra content keep it up Bio-Ware.

So when you unlock zabrak, does it allow you to mix and match Republic and Empire features or just allow Republic zabrak for empire and empire zabrak for republic? I've been wanting a pale skinned (republic) zabrak with aggressive eyes and tatoos. (empire)

I thought about creating a band called the Butthurt Trolls. Not sure how many would get it though.

Anyway, your post made me laugh. Thanks!
