Oh, you should really consider going back and playing some of their classic, Dragon Age: Origins stands out as one of my personal favorites. I'm not sure how you feel about older games, but KotOR remains as my all time favorite game, although the game is quite dated at this point and a bit clunky.

Actually thinking about those awesome games I may take a break to go replay DA:O, for one it actually allowed you to romance people of the same gender.

I'm not big on single-player games, even though I suppose I should be, as I enjoy stories. I think the other half has a copy of the Dragon Age game floating around somewhere...

I only recently played DA:O for the first time after my boyfriend convinced me to and I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that not only could I romance Zevran (which was totally awesome) but that you weren't locked into a specific gender at the brothel. Really didn't expect that given how much older the game is and how long it took to get MM SGR's in Mass Effect.

Han: "Me, either. I'm going to draft a strongly worded letter to the Yuuzhan Vong high commander and insist he stop using them."

This is my first Bioware game as well. Also my first EA game (how I lucked out in that regard I have no idea).

With (in my opinion) the way they have routinely treated the playerbase poorly, this will also be my last game by either company.

And I may be unsubbing from SWTOR if something doesn't change.

Crashing since 1.4, this last patch (1.4.3?) has made the game an unplayable slideshow that still crashes every 1 to 2 hours.

Add to that the whole "back of the bus" treatment SGRAs have gotten, I seriously wonder why I try to play this game.

Try being the operative word. Haven't had a 3+ hour play session in about a month now.

I know I am being incredibly paranoid here but I wonder if they're waiting 'til after F2P goes live to tell us it's been scrapped. That way it matters less if people unsub over it. It would still be a stupid move to scrap the whole thing because it would mean a lot of people wouldn't buy Bioware games in the future and I get the impression the company has previously attracted quite a lot of LGBT gamers.

Equally, maybe they are waiting 'til F2P goes live to bring out the announcement that will upset the people who don't want SGRs to be included.

Out of curiosity, what if it is?
I won't keep playing and neither will my husband. I am already unhappy with the game over all, not what I had expected. Although the prospect of not dealing with people like some on here is appealing.

That actually makes a strange kind of sense. It seems like EA might be hedging their bets. The funny thing is that SGRs have never hurt BioWare game sales. Jade Empire was a bestseller, as was the Mass Effect series and Dragon Age games. No reason for them to hedge bets over this, imo. But then, EA has always acted shady, so I can't say I'm surprised.

Know what would be the icing on the BS cake if that were true?

We know that some of the VAs have come back for some voice work after SWTOR launched. A lot of us assumed they were finishing off the SGRA work.

What if they just came in to do voice work for the ten new space combat missions that are coming out? If they spent the time and resources on the least used aspect of the game and still excluded SGRA content. The uproar would be deafening.

Of course that's just a wild arsed theory, like so many others that have been on the thread. You know what would make the crazy theories go away EA/BW?

ANSWER THE FREAKING QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!!

I hope you find more games that are appealing to you - there certainly is a wealth of genres out there.
