Yeah, I think they don't really 'get' that we're not the most closed minded people in the universe.

I can understand the logistics of some of the species, but others, I think they'd be fine.

While we're at it, I'd love interspecies romances too...I think that it should be possible to have pretty much any relationship you want...well, except maybe human/hutt or along those lines.

Depends on how we're defining the relationship and whether or not it has sexual parts. Zero (I think that's the name) the Hutt in the Clone Wars animated series had a relationship with a non-Hutt woman.

Just to clarify...at this point there is NO real indication SGRs are being included with the rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion?

No, there is not. Bioware have expanded on many points of the Hutt Cartel Expansion, but this is not one of them.

Depends how much stock you put in Gabe's comments, really.

At this point, I don't trust anyone's comments. Well, I'd better find out about SGRA's soon or I'm ending my sub.

We don't need sly half-indications, anyway. We need solid, substantial and official word directly from the developers working on story content. Expecting us to 'make do' with a half-baked pseudo-statement that has an extremely high degree of deniability is just insulting.

Yes, seriously. This continued silence is insulting.

Yes, I do recall that. Jabba the Hutt had Leia chained to his throne in a skimpy slave dancer outfit too in Return of the Jedi. Maybe Hutts can have fetishes for non-Hutts?

But what's with people saying there's no interspecies romance in TOR? Of course there is... Just because all the existing races are roughly human-like, doesn't mean they're all the same species - with the exception of humans and cyborgs. (Now what I don't understand is why there's no option for the other species to have cyborgs - surely they have them?)

So if your Sith Warrior is Chiss or Rattataki or Zabrak or Sith Pureblood, then their relationship with Vette is going to be interspecies, since she's a Twi'lek.

Too many characters, most of them Chiss.

Well, I just canceled my sub, and in the 'reasons why' section, I made it clear-

I'm fed up with being treated like a second class citizen here and I'm fed up with no information. If they don't give us something solid soon, I'm not resubbing, and at this rate, I'm more than willing to walk away. But no more money from me until we get what we want.

For every player who doesn't by from the cartel store or subscribe, they lose money.

I had continued to subscribe for a few months stuck in this limbo, but no more. If I can't play, then I won't pay. Moments ago I cancelled my subscription, BW will not get another cent from me until this issue is addressed.

I wish you all the best of luck, keep up the fight.
o.O Or you can progress their stories without it having to be SGR. SGR isn't an option yet, soooo, why did you plan on it to begin with?

I mean, the choice is yours of course. Cancel your account. But this is really, all on you, not on BW or EA.
