I just got Theran has a companion, and I wouldn't mind romancing with him... he's to cute.

The ideal solution if any pre level 50 content for companions is added to implement a legacy perk/item you can buy at a store that allows to reset a companionīs affection status and dialog progress.

This would not only work for SGRAs but also if other content is added. As example if you play a trooper many dialoges with companions sound like they would be interesting missions for the player to undertake instead of just hearing your companions talking about them.

That's one option, yes. A generic conversation option would be good, too, perhaps tied into the intercom item on the starship, so that you could call up a specific companion and get a 'Tell me about...' dialogue wheel with pertinent options depending on how much of the companion's dialogue you've unlocked.

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like that this is becoming a very lost cause and that it will never happen? Believe me, I would very much love to see SGRA in the game. But I feel like it is one of those things that Bioware used to just coax people into the game and then they've been fairly hush hush about it.

Since there hasn't been much communication on SGR content, it's most likely lower in priority at this time.

Unfortunately with MMOs "low priority" tends to become "not being worked on" without even as much as by-your-leave. I know I'm one of the evil, nay-saying, morale-terrorists, but I am starting to highly doubt Bioware even cares about this part of the game anymore. If they do still care they have a funny way of showing it.

Actually I think that the fact they are so quiet about it might in a way be a good sign. If they had decisded not to implement SGR at all they would have by now at least tried to say that there would be further delays ... That the statement that it was for this year had been an optimistic goal... something along those lines . You know preparing the ground for the actuall bad news. Right now there is ... nothing. Therefore they do not feel that they are not going to meet the deadline in such a way that they have to soften up the bad news. They keep quiet because anything they would say would just snowball into more questions that they would not be able to answer.


No the silence should be taken as a positive sign.

Not really, just b/c we haven't heard much of anything about future story/companion content.

If they were announcing all these cool new companion storyline features without mentioning SGRA's, then I'd be worried.

I don't think they see SGRA's as a feature that stands on it's own but see it as just a part of improvements/expansion of companion/story content that will add lots of other stuff too....and they have been hush hush about that. So, I see less as "they aren't talking about SGRA's" and more as "they aren't talking about new story/companion content."

Well, beyond the new droid thingy that I don't care at all about.

I hate to be the one to bring further negativity into this thread, but the attitude of "no news is good news" may be rather misplaced. When this topic first came up, it was asked for over two years prior to the game launching, with not a peep out of Bioware. It was only three to four months before launch that it was finally revealed that there would be no SGRA in the game, and even then it was a terse "No" when asked about them in an interview. There was no explanation, no reassurances that they would be introduced later, nothing.

So, based on their past behaviour, the fact that there is no word on this is actually a sign of bad news. But then, I'm increasingly becoming rather jaded with the way Bioware is running the game, so my attitude may be tainting my outlook on things. Definitely take anything I say with a very large grain of salt.
