I found myself allured by Gault...too bad he isn't a romance option

I love a lot of the companions in this game... but Mako isn't one of them? I mean what does she have going for her really? She's pretty resilient in the face of adversity? She's perky (actually I don't really appreciate that)? Other than that she's kind of needy and dependent. Like without my BH to take care of her she'd just... but perhaps that's her appeal to you guys. As a straight lady that's probably lost on me.

Now that I think about about I like my companions to be either BA, hysterical, or bizarre. Mako is the girl next door.

Yeah, when I finally got him and starting bringing him around with me it was such a relief. He's probably one of the most entertaining companions in the game, Mako seems extra boring in comparison.

Some people like that. The thing that I love about the BH crew is that they complement each other, instead of having similar personalities.

I suggest you check this. Theres almost scientific reason Mako is the way she is.

But she isnt too much about that, after all, she has a mysterious past (which I hope people wont spoil for me since Im not there yet)

The Hero (you)
The Lancer (Gault)
The Smart Guy (Mako and/or Blizz)
The Big Guy (Skadge)
The Chick (Torian)

And that goes away after she gives you a -1 for just about every fun response choice. Why can't Gault be a female.

"The Chick (vocal effects, tambourine) A peacekeeping role to balance out the other members' aggression, bringing them to a nice or at least manageable medium. The Chick is often considered the heart of the group. Not always female, but the role is usually taken by the Token Girl (hence the name). Sometimes referred to as "the useless girl"."

So you're saying Mako is this incredibly sexist archetype? She's not useless or secondary as far as plot goes... without her you'd never catch anyone. It's her personality that makes you think she's lame and disposable. Shame, really...

No.

The hero = You

Lancer = Torian
(BH: "You may stand down, Ill brief you when I get back."
Torian: "I'll stand down when I see you, if it's all the same to you.")

Smart guy = Gault
"Thank you! Thank you! I'll be signing autographs once the smoke clears!"

Big guy = Skadge
"Don't care, ain't listening!"

The chick = Mako
"Just let me be worried, somebodys got to be"

Blizz is like a pet thats played for comedy relief.

No, youre getting it all wrong. Shes there to balance the other personalities out (Torians seriousness, Gaults smart-alecness, Skadges violent behaviour). Thats why shes the "girl next door" type. Absolutely nothing sexist about it, nor is she useless in anyway. Its the personality that matters. Shes the balanced one.

Sometimes I think people try to troll instead of actually trying to understand.. Or you really just space through all dialog..

To me she will always be Claudia from Party of five, so i just find her extremly annoying, and to young

I've always found her adorable. I love the line she speaks when you zone into the speeder platform on Nar - where it's a place where people have something they want to loose. It's quite poetic. Kudos to the class writer for that one.

In many respects she's shaped my toon to be the guy I would've really like to be in the game, but never thought to be. A profession who gives a damn and isn't so caught up in the violence for violence sake.

I find that even her cries for help when she is low on health to have emotional weight. When I hear them, I take immediate action to save her... not because she's my heals, but that I don't want to see her die. It's weird.

At the moment, I feel very close to all my crew with the exception of Skadge, where I think they went a bit overboard.

I have a friend who, pre-game, talked about what an evil BH he would make... and now's he's the lightest of lightside pansies. Now I know why. He's whipped by his NPC GF, apparently.
