Oh, I see. Well, I would like to see some more diverse companions for SWTOR, maybe that better describes it.

Oh well.... at least it is a move in the right direction
Yeah, you know, it would be kind of realistic if we had at least some companions that turn us down. On the other hand, with the lack of SGR we already have, I kind of see this far in the future, when hopefully we have been able to romance at least a few NPCs/companions in the game. But, good point.

I agree, and this is really a moot point, one I suggest we don't follow debating since SGR will be coming. Period. Any debate on how many people want it, support it, don't want it, is really no longer necessary, nor of interest.

Actually, I think the right goes to the company on if they want to add it in, deciding how much resources they want to put into it if they decide to, and people have the right to stay or go depending on the companies choice onthe matter, without having to deal with outside sources other than players/customers to get it.

I agree. If there's OGR, there should be SGR. Many companies out there are catching up now, see Skyrim, or the Final Fantasy peeps. Thankfully, this is more and more becoming a non-issue for many game companies.

I have no idea how many people want this feature, and neither does any other player. I am just tired of seeing the numbers argument. It is totally moot unless you can get concrete numbers.

I really don't care about the numbers of who does and doesn't. It's not an argument. SGR is being added, its been promised since before launch. More features in the game is always good and its up to BW/EA to decide what is going to be included. Almost as if they have paid employees to make those decisions.

NO one said SGR content should be at the top of the priority list, but eventually you have to get to the bottom of the list

I did say going back and doing a whole patch of "lets add SGR to old content" could be seen as a waste by a majority of players. Though if they did it in increments, a classes companions here, a classes companions there, could be a good idea. The problem with that, is then we'd see people complaining it wasn't done for their class and it would be non-stop whining untill it was put in for their class.
Except that is pretty much what you implied. You implied heavily that those elements were necessary.

Look at this way, SGR implentation is likely to come once or maybe twice in this games lifetime(speculation) that when compared to all the carrot chasing Ops/FPs/Wzs it'll look like a grain of sand in the desert.

Imo class quests and companion dialogue are more important to me than the inevitable carrot chasing/time sinks. SGR is a blip in the overall picture but the option will bring some small token of joy to people playing.

I'm surprised this thread isn't abuzz with the comments on SGRs in today's State of the Game blog http://www.swtor.com/info/news/blog/20130102

According to Hickman, SGRs are coming with Makeb, probably in the form of NPC flirts, etc, while larger implementation is still being worked on.
