I don't wanna go into spoilers but the sweetest romance I've seen so far was a mini-romance with a non-companion character. To see what I mean you have to a) Imperial Agent b) Chiss c) female.
Re. Watcher Two, you find out her real name if you

Re. that mini-romance: I wish that one would be SG-enabled. I don't play female characters, so I only saw it as a vid on Youtube, it seemed quite sad and fit the IA's situation rather well. Poor Chiss agent...

My female Knight would've taken her in a heart beat if she'd been available, and normally I'm not into f/f. I would've preferred her to Doc. :P

Temple maybe, I didn't really use her much with my IA, because I play with Vector as companion 90% of the time.
I've heard a number of IA players say they think Kaliyo should be available to both genders (and even though she isn't, they headcanon it).

If I am ever going to let my primary character, twi'lek Jedi Shadow, a romance it's going to be Zenith (if that is an option). Not because he's male, but because he's twi'lek.
Sadly, he isn't. He seems to be too focused on his role with Balmorra to be interested in romance.

As I recall, this was something that was inferred a long time ago before release, but there came a rebuttal from Bioware shorty after that said it was a misunderstood statement out of context from just a community person in the forums (something about "homosexuality isn't in Star Wars") and it was not a statement made by Bioware of LucasArts, and then came the official announcement that SGR's WILL be in the game.

That said, I do like to be surprised.
They like to tell us that we'll get updates posted in this thread, but if that twit from Mr. Hood is in fact real, we have evidence that they're lying (we already knew they were lying about keeping this thread current of news, just couldn't prove it).

It was in SWG, so I'm not buying the LucasArts link. Money is my bet, it would take more dialogue and animation and to keep things shorter they opted to leave it out.

ah, couple of weeks ago, when I first saw the recently upgraded to "offficial" statement on SGRs being on Makeb, I started thinking of making a male Sith Assassin for Talos. Body type 4 for my guy it's a given, lol. Too bad you get Talos kinda late in the game. I think Khemdawg awesomeness will have to suffice until he shows up.

But for my female Sorcerer, I'll have to wait to see who's new in the neighborhood for a chance of romance. Neither Androniko nor Ashara are cutting it for her. Yeah, I know

Well, tweet (1 of 2) seems to have vanished into the Great Beyond, but I think it was legit. In fact, I think that may be why it got yanked. That is, I think people are finding ways to say more than they are allowed to say. Which is charming of them, as it would seem they don't like enforced silences any more than we do. That said, I don't want anyone to get fired.

On the other hand, if anyone wants to quit in a really spectacular manner... we're here for you.

I quoted Ixum (and linked his post) to Ms. Berryman, asking for an official word on whether or not the twit was real (also warned her that someone is masquerading as their lead writer on twitter). Ms. Berryman won't reply, but it will make the Community Team aware of the fact that we know about the twit and we want to know more.

As soon as I read it here, I started googling for it. I wanted to find it and take a screenshot of it, because well, sometimes tweets do disappear and not by accident. So I never actually saw it, that's why I asked here if someone else was able to find it.
