Tomb Raider is just for girls too amirite?

Some of my favorite SW characters are girls. The Shans alone are awesome.

Your character doesn't have to be an exact representation of yourself. Just fyi.

Dunno, I don't spend my time IRL hunting aliens for money using FTL spaceships, blasters or studying the Force, I don't see why it would be more weird to play a female character.

Ain't that the truth! Why else are the Tomb Raider games so popular - I doubt only "girls" play them.

Personally, I don't create alter-egos for myself when playing a game, I don't hard-core RP but still play each toon as an actual "individual" who I follow along/guide through the game. Therefore, I always have a mix of male and female toons in games because that's "who they are" so to speak.

It bothers me when there are perfectly acceptable male character to chose from. Unless you want to play a character and it only comes in 1 gender (kinda like old school games) I get it. Or, if they replay the game as a female, again, that's fine.

"I want to stare at a girl's butt rather than a dudes..."

I'm not starring at any butts in the game... and if I was it wouldn't be a cartoonish star wars toon's bum.

In the end, it's for the best. People can do what they want. If it wasn't for that, they wouldnt hire female voice actors for the PCs.

Now that I think about it... I wonder which is the least popular class/gender combo in the game... The other day I went to listen to all voices for each class and gender.

I'll say it's probably the Female Bounty Hunter, and then maybe the Female Trooper... which is unforunate because that's Jennifer Hale... then again she is all over the game anyway.

Nah, doesn't mean anything. I have male and female toons of all shapes and sizes. It really doesn't say much about me other than I'm an altaholic. Oh... and that I need to get out more. lol

I've made female toons in the past (Previous MMO's), but I always end up regretting it later. Maybe I'm old fashioned. I don't think there's anything wrong with it though. My daughter often times plays a male toon because she doesn't like the attention that a female toon brings and I think she just likes the looks of the male toons. lol

People make different gender characters for all different reasons.

I for one have mine for Legacy right now.

In other games, I might have a problem with. But considering that this one is very voiceover-dependent and I hate some of the male voice actors (Inquisitor, Consular) I've decided to roll a female one for those classes. If anyone asks I will of course say that I'm a man. Nobody has done it yet, though.
