How do you know it's only going to be 2 flirts? I don't think anything has really been revealed about it yet.
Which is why I made my one suggestion some posts back. Don't go back and reinvent the wheel. Just add on from where it ends now.

Last I recall, if done right, classes with multiple options have been able to hook up with both their romancable options. So if they just add in new dialogue/cutscenes, it wouldn't be any different from that.

And sense none of the romances seem to take off untill chapter 3, and at least one class can't even get the option untill their last companion, it's not like anyone is being cheated.

We can see how it is received with NPCs and maybe then decide to put resources into more complex companion stories.
Bluh, if we could eliminate anyone I hope it's Xalek. That dude is so boring, even the droid is a more interesting companion than him, at least it says something.

Another strong contender for SGR - in my opinion at least - would be Talos Drellick. Who wouldn't love to bond over geeking out about history?

He would have been a nice OGR as well, complete opposite of Andronikus. Talos would bring flowers, ancient artifacts and you'd have tea and cakes while discussing Sith history and culture... should be SGR as well, he's freaking adorable.

Quite possibly the best of the companions for the SI. Had Talos been a romance option I would have seriously considered it. He just has so much pep and personality, unlike boring "action man" Andronikos.

I was actually shocked that Talos wasn't an option! He's a human. I thought for sure Id get to choose between him and Andronikos.

Though to be fair, I thought Talos gave off a SGR vibe.

So you should. I fact we all should, if we personally care about SGR or not.

The more I think about it, the more I see how much Bioware has to deliver in the next couple of month and with the mini expansion:

1. Good Leveling Experience to lvl 55
2. Meaningful lvl 55 pve content (both flashpoints and operations)
3. Meaningful lvl 55 gear progression for pve and pvp
4. Balancing lvl 55 pvp and pve talents skills
5. Continunation of the class (and companion) storys
6. Fixing the known bugs
7. Fixing World pvp
8. Meaningful SGR

Let`s be honest, if Bioware would be able to get just half of it right, we should be happy.

While I personally do not care about SGR, I can totally see why its a big thing for other people and hope that the Developers can make it happen. It is, however, safe to assume, that most players do care more about many other points on this list than SGR.

Lets hope we all will be pleasantly surprised.

Andronikos does a voice made of pure sex, though. Almost as good as the male Agent.
