There's a bunch of other really interesting stuff going on there (his shady grip on ethics vs his sheer medical genius, for example, and the fact that he really DOES want to help people and do the right thing but just needs reminding every now and then) and I don't have any issue with him being a bit dodgy. He's a sleaze, sure, but even sleazes need love. Or some form of equivalent.
Fair enough. I did develop quite the "bro-mance" with him on my JK. His first impressions on me when I did try a female JK were poor to the say the least.

Quote:
The only issue I see with the matter (and it's a fairly significant issue) is that there's no other option. If he was one option amongst several it'd be a very different matter. My JK thinks he's an awesome guy and a very good friend. But she wouldn't jump him and as there's no other option she spends her time staring at Kira's butt and thinking that perhaps the Force is just telling her 'no, you don't get to be with anyone'.
That's been my biggest issues for both my JK and my SW. Doc just seemed almost stereotyped as the womanizer, which was the turn off for me. Granted, I know the character has more depth to that(there is a reason why my affection is maxed with him,) but he just seemed too sleazy for the only option as lady JK. Same thing with Quinn; once I got over a couple of key events in the game, the guy grew on me. I was just very sad that my poor SW doesn't see Quinn that way, can't stay with Pierce and watches Jaesa from across the ship.

I hate having a "but thou must" in this game. Want to romance Kira/Jaesa/Vette? But thou must be a guy toon! Want to romance Torian/Quinn/Corso? But thou must be a lady toon!

What? Are you daring to imply that player choice might be a preferable situation to having our options dictated to us? Why, that's nonsense! Next you'll be telling me that female players can have male characters and male players female characters - THEN think of where we'll be!

Wookies and Jawas and bears, oh my!

On a more serious note, it's possible 1.4 will drop this week, meaning that we then have a magical six-week period to await whatever new content they can apparently crank out in that time, so we may - hopefully - get more information during that time. Well, well overdue information of course.

"We pleased to announce that SGRA's are coming in the near future, but we have no determined date yet! Thank you for your continued patience. On a lighter note, here's a new event we scripted and shot in a lunch hour, yay!"

Even if I had the faith to see their '6 week' thing as something resembling a tangible time-line, three weeks sees the LotRo expansion and I'm lacking the enthusiasm to stay here until my sub's run out to get my money's worth. At least Turbine can actually bring themselves to speak to their customers, and mean what they say.

Yes, they say that the communication has been increased between the Community Team/Developers and the players, but I can't say I've seen it. I'm just wondering how long I can be bothered to stick with the "wait and see" approach, it's becoming very hard to believe in a company that doesn't seem to believe in itself.

LOL @ "No, you kiss me."

Thanks for the smile. Ixum.

And just so that we're ready if we do get company, here's the list of Things We Want To Know But Don't:

  • Are we still on track to see same-gender romantic content in game this year?
  • Will any current companions be available for same-gender romance? If so, which?
  • If current companions are made avaialble, will the new romantic content be available to players who have already completed existing story content with their companions without needing to roll a new character?
  • Will same-gender content require and additional purchase, such as a legacy unlock, in-game credit expense or real-world currency through the Cartel shop?
  • Will we ever see same-gender content beyond companion characters as [Flirt] prompts with various world or class story mission NPCs, such as currently exist as opposite-gender options?
